It's beginning to sound very appealing.  I was very disappointed to
discover that my FR is unusable as an MP3 player (and I'm not demanding:
I usually find 64Kb/s Vorbis files good enough for such a use).

Hmm... why does it distort the interal speaker?
Would it be possible to add a 10 F capacitor on top of the 1 F one
and connect it (in parallel) using your magic silver thingy (that
I know nothing about), so as to avoid the soldering?
