Features: Pogo Products line of RipFlash units are flash memory based MP3 players that also have various recording capabilities. All units can record in [at least] 128kbps stereo. Units connect via USB cable but do not appear on desktop as a storage volume. Rather, special (Windows-only) software must be used for audio file transfer to/from the device. Units do not appear to have recording level controls (neither manual nor automatic), nor do they seem to have recording indicators that show whether an audio signal is present.
User Comments: Input sensitivity on RipFlash TRIO microphone jack is somewhat low.
Optional Accessories: Archos sells a US$50 external microphone and preamp that can be connected to the unit's LINE input.
