(a) this is not a preamp, it's just a plug-in power module, running on very
small batteries.
(b) this is MONO, not stereo.

Are you having problems with electret mics that lead you to believe they're
underpowered by the iRiiver?

If you do want a powering module, you  might look for one that uses AA
batteries -- easier to find, longer life, and less fiddly to replace in the
field, Among others the Sound Professionals make a wide range which are
highly customizable with other features (e.g. switchable bass rolloff,
genuine preamplification). They are considerably more expensive though
(usually in the US$50 range and up). Occasionally they pop up used at the
Taperssection sales forum...
