I use a Tascam DR-05, which cost me 75 2 years ago, together with "bonzofessional" mics! These are nothing more than tiny Electret Mic Capsules bought from ebay - 20 for just under 3, which are wired to stereo airline headphone/earphone cable. I have these taped either through shirt collar button holes, or through holes in my camera bag. So total stealth if required and a nice stereo spread.

You would need a power source if this is not already provided in the recorder.

The DR-05 has a USB port allowing fast transfer to a PC.

Another option is a now discontinued Hi-MD minidisc which may be procured quite cheaply now.
