Why don't you try a Creative Nomad Jukebox.
They are out of production but you can score them on eBay for short money.

The input is line level so you will need a preamp, and most have 10 GB drives
but this one on eBay claims 20 GB.   SR ranges from 11025 - 48000 sps
and it operates on AC, internal, or external 6 volt batteries.
.wav, .wma, and .mp3 formats.
