Would this mp3 recorder

Hi guys

Could anyone tell me if this mp3 recorder would be suitable like the iriver as a back for capturing audio?
Have a look at the link

Based upon the specs, it only allows use of the built-in mic, which is very likely useless.

You need external mic access to make this kind of device usefull.

It does have a line in (look under the Connections section of the specs). So the next question would be if it has a lock function. Once you start it recording you want to lock the controls so that it can't be accidentally turned off. If it has that then it looks like a winner. Pretty much a trendy iRiver.

Not only that but pre-amp circutry to boost and monitor the input signal.

And as far as the "lock" everyone touts as necessary - nothing a piece of scotch tape can't cure.
