Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

The Sony MZ-NF810 Net MiniDisc Tuner Walkman offers great looks, a compact design, up to 82 hours battery life, an AM/FM radio and the ability to store over five hours of music on one 80-minute MiniDisc.

MiniDisc technology has come on leaps and bounds these past few years. As the units have become smaller, the battery life and storage capacity have increased. The MZ-NF810 is a compact unit that fits nicely into a pocket or in your hand. The player boasts an LCD display for track listings and other such information, as well as offering all the buttons you'll need to get the most out of the device. For direct audio recording the user has the option of microphone, digital optical and line-in sockets. Those with a PC can connect the MZ-NF810 to their computer via the USB socket.

Connecting the unit to your computer via USB allows you transfer CD audio, MP3, WMA and WAV files using the included SonicStage software. The software converts the audio files into Sony's ATRAC TYPE-S format before transfer. You can also change the audio quality setting to give yourself more music per disc. When it comes to recording, the MZ-NF810 does an admirable job too. With the Quick mode you can have faster queuing and FF/RW speeds in exchange for battery life. The unit also offers a bookmark track function for easy access to relevant recordings.

Listening to your favourite compilation is one thing; having the ability to keep up to date with the latest happenings in the world is another--the MZ-NF810 also features a FM/AM radio.

The MZ-NF810 is powered by a rechargeable Ni-MH battery, which is charged via the included cradle. There is also the option of adding an additional 'AA' type battery via a connectable battery dock. The additional battery dock will be appreciated by those who plan to be away from the charging cradle for any length of time. The remote control also serves as the main conduit to the player, allowing the main unit to be hidden out of sight.

Aesthetics aside, the sound quality is very good. The player comes with six graphic equaliser settings and a virtual surround mode to enhance your listening pleasure. While sounding like a whim, the virtual mode is actually very good and on test, it actually took away that hard edge normally found when listening to music through headphones.

Overall this is a very comprehensive player and delivers the goods. The slim and compact aluminium body does convey a sense of durability and it looks like it could take a few knocks. The ability to add a further battery can be a useful if you're out and about. --Jason Denwood

    What can I say?! This minidisc player is brilliant value, because it includes an AM/FM radio as well as 32x high quality recording and of course plays them! The sound quality is excellent, and the remote makes programming a whole lot easier, because you can clip it anywhere. It can have a remarkable 50 hours play on a single AA battery (70 if used in conjunction with the rechargable) and comes complete with charging cradle and all necessary cables to get started.
    I found it very easy to learn the controls of the recording and playing and could probably control it with my eyes shut: it is that simple!
    All in all, this is a fantastic package, well worth the price. Highly recommended to anyone who wants a minidisc player!

    This is a great minidisc player and does exactly waht it says on the desription. The quality is top even when on the MDLP function. I found out after purcahsing the mz-nf810 that using an optical lead you can transfer music cd's straight onto your minidisc player from a sony portable cd player. This is great as when my computer is temprementle i can still transfer my music. The radio is quality and so are the recordings from it(It might take a bit of time to get your head round how to record but after reading the manual is quite simple).
    Appearance wise its cool and the colour is slightly different than on the picture. Its a lighter silver and looks nicer than i expected it to, and nicer than it does in the picture.
    The only slight problem is that if you want to use the player without the radio attatchment then the headphones are extremely short and you will need to buy some longer ones inless you intend on wearing the player in a high jacket pocket, but any other pockets would make it impossible for them to reach your ears.
    If you want a minidisc player there is not better one on the market with these great features. The radio, MDLP mode, and NETMD gives it all the added functions you could possibly want. There is a case altough you may want to purchase a more substantial one or one with an armband.
    (nothing to do with the actually minidisc player but it might be an idea to buy minidiscs that come in a box as they are easy to misplace and it keeps them in order. also remember that the sound quality can depend on the type of minidisc you by and the manufacturor. i have not had a faulty disc yet but a friend had one that just wouldnt let you record onto it. even with the best manufacturors this is enevatble every once in a while.)

    The reviews and ratings on this page automatcally show how brillant andpopualar the NF810 is in terms of quality and style, so there's no pointin writing loads about the player itself, but i'd like to emphasis thatthe SonicStage software is not as bad as you may think, though it can betricky at times. The software is actually very easy to use and if youwant to download a substancail number of songs, just be patient because ittakes quite a while to transfer especially with an aging PC. One downsideto mention is that the disc capacity is quite low, as i had found it couldonly store around 40 songs on one 80 minute disc (in LP2 mode) which isnot a lot, but none-the-less still a brilliant piece of gadget andderserves 5 stars!

    Yes its a bit fiddly but when everything goes micro like this you have to compromise.
    I didn't have a problem with the software, it seemed straightforward to me. That is, until I tried to shift MP3 files from my pc. They obviously don't like each other or the software doesn't like me. 'Checking Out' from pc onto minidisc is easy and 3 or 4 tracks kind of trickle through at the same time, if you are recording whole albums. LP2 sounds perfectly good, haven't tried LP4 yet. Means you can get 160 or 320 minutes onto a disc respectively. Have discarded the remote as it is designed to perch out of a shirt pocket and so looks like a short but very fat biro. This would appear to be the radio so might be good to keep it handy about your person.
    Recording direct from source is a doddle but fiddly if you want to adjust the recording volume. Vinyl goes over very well.
    Earphones are probably adequate but I like a bit of bass so you might want to get a pair that have the sticky-outy bits on them that trap wax like cabbage in a colander even though you could swear you've syringed your lugs clean.
    I just glanced at the manual for the basics. I didn't get bogged down with all the features as I just want to hear nice clear bassy sounds. Which is what you will hear too without much fuss. Fat thumbs up.

    After reading some of the less-than-complementary reviews on here, I was slightly apprehensive about ordering this minidisc player. Thankfully I went ahead with it, and it is now the new love of my life.
    The software runs like a dream - after a few minutes, I was transferring music back and forwards with ease and it hasn't crashed yet. For someone who's been operating with analogue recordings for the past few years its a welcome relief!
    The manual may look daunting, but even then, after a quick flick through it you know the basics and can just skim to the appropriate section if you get a bit stuck later.
    The battery life is as impressive as it says, the sound quality is excellent and the radio works well. The design of the player is excellent and fits perfectly in a pocket.
    There are a few little niggles. Like others have said, the remote control can be very irritating. The placing of the "radio button means you often flick it on, turning off the minidisc player as you try and clip the remote onto anything. The length of the headphones is not really that adequate - I've already swapped them for a new pair.
    Overall, this is an excellent model and if you too are swithering, believe me - go for it. This has been my best music-related purchase in years.
