Confused about line-in recording.
I don't have one of these Insignia Sport players yet and I would only buy one (used, on eBay) if it is good, as the manual implies, for line-in recording.
The manual includes (on page 32) the following specs for 'Line in recording formats':
WMA (all sampling rates are 44.1 KHz)Although there are a couple of other incidental references to 'Line in recording' in the manual, there is no indication in the diagrams of a port for line in. Is it done somehow through either the USB port or the headphone jack port, or is there a port that doesn't show up in the diagrams and doesn't show up, either, in the list of ports on page 31?
Also, is there another model of this or any brand that does high-quality line-in recording?
If price isn't an issue, you'd be much better off with a professional recorder, as mentioned here:
Other than that, there are a few MP3 players with line-in capabilities that are supported by Rockbox. Personally, I use an old Rockboxed Cowon X5L and record to lossless Wavpack format in CD quality.
Thanks for the links. I'll move that part of my inquiry to that forum.
I still want to get clarification about in-line recording on the Sport, though.
BTW, the Sport manual I referred to was for the NS-2V17 and the NS-4V17. I understand there are other models under the Sport name but I wasn't thinking about them.
