Default Replacement for H120 (recording)

My H120 died on me (harddisk failure). Is there any new iRiver player that has line input?
Thanks,
Chuck

The only (slightly) newer one is the h320, which is basically your h120 with a color screen. Your best bet is to check out some of the daps from Cowon, I believe the x5 has line in.

okay, I hoped I overlooked something. H340 is as old as my H120 - I wish there was something newer.
I might try to shop around for H340, X5 or I'll get a small one from Creative - they have 1GB flash players with a line input.
Thanks for you reply!

I have a H320 for sale on misticriver/head-fi if your interested.
I don't know if I can post direct links but its there all the same.

It doesn't have the optical input of the H1xx, but still all the same recording, line-in, etc (the H1xx and H3xx are essentially the same hardware apart from a few bits like the screen).

So true. I had a 120 and a 320. My 320’s battery keeps dying after about 1 minute of use so it's replacement time. I looked at Iriver but it appears that they’ve abandoned the Hard-Drive MP3 market all together. I purchased the Cowon X5 but I returned it because of its tiny screen. Is it just Iriver? Cowon’s X5 has been out since 05, the Creative Zen is over a year old a no updates are in sight (from what I can see) What other choices are there for a bloke who wants a HD based mp3 player? Looks like I’ll get the creative. The Toshiba is limited, the Ipod sucks, and the Cowon is old-school.

Thanks man, I got old Jukebox 3 with line input, 2nd hand, already. It records to wave @ 16 bit/48kHz.

There is nothing out there like the H120 in terms of recording flexibility (optical in and so on). When my H120's battery started to fail, I replaced the internal battery with a larger 1800mah battery. When the RTC mod was published, I modded my H120 to have a real-time clock when used with a custom Rockbox version. With Rockbox the H120 is an amazing recorder/player.

I had considered the H3xx series but those have unreadable screens when the backlight goes off.

After three and a half years, my H120 is still going strong. If the hard drive fails, I plan to replace the drive with a 30gb drive.

Default replace ihp 120 for input method

I am looking to replace an IHP 120 for the input method. (Drag & Drop from windows.)

I like the fact that I don't need any software to put mp3 files on the disk, + I need to use the unit as a portable hard disk. I tried putting a new HD in mine when it looked like the HD crashed, but I think the controller is shot & it's time for a replacement.

Any suggestions? I'm looking for mp3 & portable HD + FM no need for any silly DRM & ogg would be nice. (Burnt a bunch of CD's...)

The X5 is much better in almost every aspect than the H300. Here's the review: http://www.anythingbutipod.com/archi...-x5-review.php

Of course both don't have the digital-in the H100 had...

I returned my X5. Reason? Super Small screen. TheX5's screen is smaller than and not as good as the Iriver's H3xxx screen. If you already have an H3xxx, then purchasing a X5 would be a waste? Needless to say I never felt the need to return my Iriver H3xxx. The Zen vision M: is a better choice than the X5 IMO

The original poster wanted it for it's recording features, not for watching videos... the X5's screen is fine for everything audio-related. All the info is there, at a glance.

Both the X5 and H300 are crap for video, but everybody knows that. X5 is 160x128@15fps, H300 is 220x165@10fps...
