Irivers questions

I read a lot on the Irivers. Sounds promising in capturing "speech". I want to know if I need to do anything else as far as post production. Can the sound captured be plugged onto directly onto NLE time line or do I have to do "touch ups" on another audio program to get the capture sound good.

Second question, can somone give me an idea how much audio a 256mb can hold?

Thanks

I have an iRiver 790T with a Giant Squid lav mic (there is a special one that Giant Squid makes for the iRiver because the iRiver is wired backward for mono). The sound is good considering itís recording in MP3. There is a slight noise floor but I use Sound Soap 2 in post to remove it. (I use Sony Vegas NLE so I can do this right on the timeline)

Considering the price itís a decent setup. You can get 3.5 hrs of 160kbps mono recording on 256MB memory.

Fred,
Here is a recording time chart I put together on another forum:

Expected record times based on 512 Mb model (256 will be half...1Gb will be double the record time below)
In mono:
44hz 32kbps = 35 hours: 31 minutes
" " 40kbps = 28 Hours: 25 minutes
" "" 48kbps = 23 hours: 21 minutes
" " 56kbps = 20 hours: 18 minutes
" " 64kbps = 17 hours: 45 minutes
" " 80kbps = 14 hours: 12 minutes
" " 96kbps = 11 hours: 50 minutes
" " 112kbps = 10 hours: 09 minutes
" " 128kbps = 8 hours: 52 minutes
" " 160kbps = 7 hours: 06 minutes

In Stereo:
44hz 64kbps = 17 hours: 45 minutes
" " 80kbps = 14 Hours: 12 minutes
" "" 96kbps = 11 hours: 50 minutes
" " 112kbps = 10 hours: 09 minutes
" " 128kbps = 8 hours: 52 minutes
" " 160kbps = 7 hours: 06 minutes
" " 192kbps = 5 hours: 55 minutes
" " 224kbps = 5 hours: 05 minutes
" " 256kbps = 4 hours: 26 minutes
" " 320kbps = 3 hours: 33 minutes

Thanks Mark!
In the same vein, I have an Irivier H10, which doesn't have the same features as the older 120 for recording. Does anyone here have experience with it? I have the 20gig HD version.
Beachtek has come out with a DXA-10 designed for stereo recording to consumer based devices. Seems like that would be great if the quality made it into the Iriver.
