Searching through the archives just now, looking for microcassette player 
and dug up an old thread from 2003 [see quoted text below].

Does anyone have further (or updated) recommendations regarding 
microcassette players?
Something with (at least) one 1/8" output?
I will be plugging the unit into a mixing board and editing the audio in 
WaveLab from there, if that helps any.

As for the JBR mentioned below, sounds nice and all, but I'm thinking 
something significantly less expensive than "multiple thousand dollars".
Not cheap, mind you, but a little more on the reasonable side.

Any help would be much appreciated.

thanks as always,

I am interested in this as well. The only answer that I know is the JBR I think it's in the multiple 
thousands ($7?) of dollars.
