Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

The Sony MZ-G750 Recordable MiniDisc Walkman has all you need for high-class portable sound--a recordable MiniDisc complete with radio in one neat package. Sony has decided to add a radio into its range of portable MiniDisc players, effectively giving you two portables in one. It has managed to keep the size down too; MZ-G750 is little bigger than other players in the range. It's a handsome beast and despite being relatively light it's well constructed and sturdy. Power is supplied by a single AA battery, the compartment for which adds a bulge to the back of the otherwise beautifully compact body.

The list of features is impressive. It'll handle Sony's LP2 and LP4 recording modes, which squeeze even more music onto a single disc. You do lose quality though, and the highest level is best left to spoken word recordings. Putting so many functions on a tiny device does mean it can get fiddly to control and some functions require delving through a good few menus. There's a remote control unit halfway along the cable that is a trifle bulky, but manages to pack an amazing number of functions.

The sound quality is excellent, one of Sony's strengths. It provides a crisp and detailed sound right across the range without being overly sharp or bright. Radio reception is remarkably good too. The headphone wire doubles as the FM antenna and there are 40 pre-sets to store your radio stations. Amazingly the radio takes more power than the MiniDisc. Battery life is generally very good though. It comes complete with an external adapter for when you are at home, useful since recording is the one job that will eat batteries pretty quickly. You can record from either a digital or analogue source, although you'll need to buy an extra cable for analogue recordings. One small disappointment is that you cannot record from the radio; it is switched off when you operate the device in MiniDisc mode. The earphones are Sony's little in-ear affairs, decent enough but a player of this quality could usefully be used to drive something a little meatier. The MZ-G750 is a superb piece of hardware, it has all the features and capabilities of Sony's other highly desirable MiniDisc players, but with a radio on top. --Miles Berkeley

What a mini disc player sony have come up with. Its light, versatile and has loadsa battery life. There is a snag though, with the radio i found that it is bulky and quite haevy for a remote, the aerial for the radio is actually in the headphone wire so if it is not straight you tend to get a pretty poor signal. Although i did not buy the md disc player for the radio it was just an extra for me. But if you are overlooking the rest of sony's great md models, because lets face it the only md players which are any good are sony, then do not go for this model because of its radio. Having siad that if the headphone wire is positioned correctly you can get decent enough signal to get the usual - radio 1 capital. lp2 and lp4 are as standard on this model and they are very useful. This is an older model though, i would recommend one of sonys latest with pc link because you can make complitations albums using pc interface.
But if you are just looking for a portable md player which you want for recording cd albums off your hifi then this is the one for you. NB make sure you have checked that your hifi has an optical out link - most of the newer hifis do - probably from 2000 onwards, if not it can be quite taxing to record mds, with an optical cable its all digitally done so you can put your feet up and relax.

Brilliant MD Player. Sound Quality is perfect. treble is brilliant and bass is 8 out of 10. The radio is a good feature if you get sick of listening to the same music over and over again. This MD is worth having and gives better sound quality than the net MD and the IPOD!!!
WELL WORTH THE MONEY!!!!!!!

Although there are a lot of similar quality, cheaper MD's out there, if you are looking for a good quality MD-radio this is the best. The sound quality is excellent, even on MDLP and the radio although small, manages a strong signal better than most others. MZ-G750 is very simple to use although this does have some drawbacks. It does have it's flaws, but none to advise against buying it. The functions like display and play mode will reset themselves if you turn it off or use certain other options. This isn't really a problem unless you are editing the discs. The radio is contained in the remote which is a bit annoying if you don't want the excess wire and if you do use the remote, you can't turn the minidisc function on. The earphones you get with it are good quality but awkward design. I suggest buying some in-ear bass earphones (around £17.50), it's worth the investment. Although it doesn't come with the analog wire (which rightly annoys people with older equipment), sony have cunningly fitted an optical port in the back of their PS2 for digital recording and most people have an optical port somewhere around the house. In any case, the analog wire is only £5.
It seems like one big rant but these are only very minor irritations and are worth putting up with for the quality of the player.

I have this product since september 2001.I have had no problems with it whatsoever.It is an amazing unit.The only thing I did was change the headphones,for better sounding ones.That is a personal preference anyway and should not deter anyone from buying this brilliant product.

I bought this because I wanted the radio as well as the MD player. However, I find the radio tuning to be pretty poor and the reception not too hot either. Still, the MD music quality is excellent. I use the LP2 mode which gets about 2.5 hours of music on an MD. I can't tell any difference between LP2 and normal modes.
The real trouble I've had though is with recording. Not the MDs fault though. I'm using a SoundBlaster card on my PC and its Digital Out, isn't compatible with the Sony's Digital in (even with a lead that fits both correctly. Something about TOSLINK Vs SPID standards?)..... VHS Vs Betamax again? Anyway, I ended up having to record music using analogue, even though I have digital connections for both pieces of kit. Not a problem I suppose if you have the right sort of 'out' on a music system.
Anyway, Sony MD, yeah... brilliant.
Any help on the problem I mentioned would be gratefully received by the way.

this minidisc player is great. i managed to fit 6 albums onto just 1 minidisc using the mdlp thing! the quality was still very good on lp4. half of my friends were so impressed by it they are buying their own now. shame about the AA battery thing and the remote control not having the scrolling mode function but at least it has a radio.
