A good and affordable option for playback?

Whilst birding over the weekend with Richard Thomas we used his Olympus LS-10 digital recorder in conjunction with a RadioShack Mini Audio Amplifier.  The microphone on the LS-10 is amazingly good at recording bird vocalisations, and I was totally sold on it as a very worthwhile investment for playback (currently I simply play sound recordings using my iPhone and a RadioShack amplifier, which is fine but means I cannot record anything myself).

A bit of googling determined that the LS-10 has now been replaced by the LS-10S which seems to be significantly cheaper that the original recorder at only US$ 175.  It also seems worthwhile spending US$ 50 on a Windjammer to ensure the best possible sound quality.
