He is not really looking for tape to hd conversions.
It seems like the DS-2 would work. It is mentioned that it shows up
as a USB block device. So, you can take the recordings directly
off the unit.
But, so far, you can only use WMA, not the DSS files.
I have not looked into topic extensively. So, I don't know about
any other product availablity/compatibility.
