Proving the Impossible
This is one challenge that screams for a switch; the trick is how to do it and do it effectively. What made this challenge interesting was that there are a lot of things here that could be switched -- the recorders, the labels, the signatures, and the voices -- and the solutions covered those items. Just to give you an idea of how folks were thinking, there are sleight-based switches of the recorders, interesting ideas for switching the labels, a very nice idea using a store-bought gimmick, a technological solution or two, and a particularly gutsy method relying solely on misdirection.
That last, the option chosen by Bill Eburn, seemed so obvious it appeared unworkable. I'll admit I was suprised, pleasantly so, when it did. Bill, it seems, knows more about the quality of digital recorders than I do and his solution ends up being straightforward and clean... if you have the intestinal fortitude to pull it off.
So this time around
Bill Eburn wins the prize of a $20

Congratulations to everyone who found a solution to this problem! Now, of course, the next challenge awaits!
