Wouldn't applying compression squash out most of the noise you get? You
would have to apply it in an editor. I think Goldwave's hiss reduction works
OK for wav files that originally came from mpeg files recorded off my TV
tuner card. Considering that the source is really digitized analog cable
once it's on the hard drive, it doesn't sound too bad if run through the
goldwave stuff. I say the local channels versus cable networks sound a
little worse, but none are great.

Pam, recording with the internal mike does result in some rather poor quality. However, with the proper external mike, it is quite nice. It still has more floor noise or additional hiss than I would like, but it is much better with an external mike. This is especially true if you are using a headset mike. In this way you are much closer to the mike and your voice will mask out a good deal of the background sound.

And why is it that the recording quality both with the Pacmate and the MPower is so poor I wonder? Even at the highest quality settings, MPower recordings have a crackling sound in the background. It's not the bitrate that's the problem, and for as expensive as those machines are, you'd think they could at least have the recording quality of a laptop--otherwise, why bother?
