These are taken from the manufacturers webpage WM9711


This information is uncertain since the reference is to the WM9711L, while WM9711G is the chip on the GP2X. No information concearning the G model is found on their webpage.

Interesting possibilities

There might be a possibilitie to connect a microphone to the chip, and by changing some registers in the wm9711, one could possibly get the mic signal to a ADC and read the converted information. I also have a phone input, pcbeep input and a line input.
