Product Description

Product Description

The NetMD system featured on the Sony MZ-N510 Silver Net MiniDisc Walkman is designed to maximise your entertainment: record MP3s or CDs at up to 32x speed from your PC directly to your Net MD recorder together with title/track information; enjoy ATRAC3 audio, MP3, WMA and WAV playback and use MDLP long-time stereo playback to get more than five hours of music on one 80-minute disc.

There are two modes (LP2 and LP4) of recording and up to 56 hours of continuous playback using one AA battery (in LP4 mode), thanks to technology that extends battery life beyond previous limits. Music management software such as the supplied SonicStage makes managing your music a snap; a bookmark function enables rapid song retrieval.

Skip-Free G-Protection minimises loss of position and provides quick recovery from both horizontal and vertical shock. The Easy Skip Group/Folder function allows for easy navigation between multiple file folders. There are multiple playback modes, allowing extreme versatility in track programming.

An indicator on the unit's LCD alerts you to the time left on the MiniDisc for recording or playback, as well as providing information about remaining battery life.

The automatic end search function informs you, with the press of a button, how much unrecorded time remains on a disc and begins additional recording from that point. A remote control is supplied for easy access to advance tracks. Other supplied accessories include Sony stereo headphones, rechargeable battery and a carry case. The MZ-N510 measures in inches 3.25(w) x 1.125(h) x 3(d) and weighs 3.6 ounces (without batteries).

    I'm going abroad for several months and I couldn't bear the thought of leaving my music collection behind me. My CD discman only plays CDs at about 3 a.m. on a Thursday for some moody reason, and only then if there's no hint of a scratch on the CD; my old cassette walkman, well, is a cassette walkman, which, apart from the fact that you need a rucksack to carry it, is useless for recording lots of albums; so I turned to Minidisc and I bought the latest to Sony's NetMD range.
    Its obviously an entry level recorder so doesn't have some of the cooler features like backlit LCD and the remote is very basic. Its light and looks good (apart from the plastic back), sound quality is excellent even with the basic headphones. The bundled software Sonic Stage seems to work well with both MP3s and CD audio, no serious problems yet.
    Everything else you would expect from a Sony MD recorder is there: MDLP for squeezing up to 320 mins on one MD, G-Protection Jog proof, optical cable included, rechargeable battery included, Group function for grouping albums/genres etc, and blah blah blah techie stuff.
    For those confused with the concept of NetMD, it is what they call a 'format extension' as opposed to a brand new technology. Its aimed to rival MP3 players in that you can 'download' MP3s to your MD recorder. You could still record MP3s with ordinary MD recorders but NetMD is designed to make the process faster and easier. Faster is the key to it, it uses your PCs USB port to whizz the songs over to be burned onto the Minidisc, whereas you have to actually play the songs through your computer to record on ordinary MDs.

    I bought my net MD player to replace an old MP3 player. I installed the SonicStage software which I found quite complex, even though I work with and develop software for a living. I then loaded my first CD of music onto a disc. This also included a one-time registration with CDDB which thereafter fills in the blanks as regards Artist, Title, Song and Genre. Saves LOTS of typing.. SonicStage also ensures that you can't check out a track more 3 times.
    I was impressed by the speed at which the transfer took place - previous MD reviews I had read mentioned recording at the same speed as the CD played: Sony have done well here and it's almost as convenient as my old MP3 player. The battery life is fantastic - nearly a month on average with a Duracell, easily over 2 weeks with the supplied rechargeable battery. Once you get used to the complexities of the menu system it's a very slick device. The quality of the sound is very high indeed and there is no discernable noise. I have also found it to be largely immune from skips and dropouts when I walk around: can't comment on running though :-)
    Once thing I take issue with though is the heavily publicised Electronic Music Distribution (EMD). If you're in the UK, you're going to be disappointed when you go the OpenMG web site and find that they only have the facility in Japan. They have been promising a European service sinc at least October 2003 and nothing has appeared. If Sony intend to attract consumers by using EMD then they are wasting their time. My advice would be to buy the device for it's CD-handling capabilities and wait until Sony and other distributors realise that other countries other than the USA listen to music.

    When my Sony MZN-510s finialy arrived, I was very keen to start using it. I had to unpackage it and I found many different wires, leads and extra bits. The manual is very thick but usufull none the less.
    I chose it because of the Net MD function that only Sony manufacture at this time. The battery time of 56hrs on one single AA batery is very good and the MDLP function is a nessecity. The size is small and light, it is visually attractive from the front but lacks a little astheticness from the back. The screen is small but it does the job.
    When I installed it on my P.C (1.6ghz, 256mb ram) it took some time but it was only because I was so excited. The 'Sonic Stage' music program supplied takes a good few seconds to load each time and is very confusing at first. It is a good idea to play around with it at first whilst flipping through the manual.
    I managed to get 3 full length music albums on one mini-disc which I am pleased with as the quality is still very high.
    Overall I would say that it may be the cheapest NetMini-disc from Sony's new range but it is still very good.

    There is only one word that describes this MiniDisc player, quality!!
    The player/recorder is not the most fancy looking MD that Sony bring out but it gives you great sound, is totally jog proof and as it is a Net MD allows you to record MP3's onto it.
    So what are you getting for you £130. Firstly you get a well built MD player that allows you to record from a CD or DVD player as well as from a PC. You get an optical lead to plug into a CD or DVD player and a USB cable to go into the PC. You also get a rechargeable battery and a charger so you don't have to spend lots on batteries. The MD player gives you CD quality sound if you record in sterio along with being pocket sized.
    The only down side is that the buttons are plastic and the LCD screen is quite small. But these are only minor problems. This player gives you everything that you need and is at a great price. In my opinion if you buy a more expensive Song MD you are buying looks or the little LCD stick. With this MD you get great sound, Net MD and a jog proof player plus a case. All you will every need at a great price.
