Re: new gadget
Just ordered one from Amazon.com at $109.00. This was the best price I
found -(Also available on ebay, Music123, Musicians Friend etc. at
street price of $149.00.) Not having an "iPod" I also ordered a
compatible SanDisk 1GB Cruzer Mini USB flash drive as the target
device. Hopefully everything works as advertised. I'll post
impression/ review in about a week. - Paul
PS: Plan on using it to record solo gigs etc. for reference (direct out
from "UltraSound" acoustic guitar amp).
