I need a digital recorder to record violin practice sessions among other things. The cost needs to be less that $100. Any suggestions?

Looks DOA.

I haven't seen any recorders in that price range except voice recorders. Some transfer to a PC but the record quality is "voice" and nothing more.

Voice recorders are just a class of recorders that you see at the usual office stores. The quality is certainly nothing you'd want to listen to at length but they are the only ones that fall into your 100 buck limit.

-> Just so you know, if we want great sound we can blow past 100 fast just for the microphones.
