Updates: A reader reports that some form of gain control is available in more recent firmware updates (he surmises that the gain control is done digitally, i.e. there is no analog preamp prior to the A/D stage). An excerpt from the text file that goes with the latest JB3 firmware ( 1.32.02) reads: You can now record audio with a microphone (available separately) by directly connecting it to your player. Your player supports microphone recording with dynamic microphones and self-powered condenser microphones. If the audio that you want to record is relatively soft, your player can help boost the volume of the recording by as much as 48 dB.
Specs: SNR: <=98dB (LINE), <=96dB (Headphone), headphone amp: 100mW
