Very good quality and many features
on 25 February 2002
This is my first minidisc, and I'm not disappointed. The actual minidisc has many features that you would expect and others you do not. There are four recording modes, as well as 2 long-play modes, which means that you can record up to four CDs on one minidisc without too much loss of quality. The playback is very crisp, even with the supplied earphones. The stick remote is extremely handy with its clip-on nature, so you can clip it onto your collar or jacket and have easy access to songs, as well as powerful editing facilities suck as renaming and editing tracks. Editing is very powerful, with the ability to move songs, erase a disc in a few seconds and name the disc and songs on it very quickly. The rechargeable battery lasts a good deal longer than normal batteries, so you do not always have to swap batteries. The player itself is very sturdy and resilient to all of my brutality upon it.
One of the only downsides is that your hi-fi system has to be pretty new to start recording straight away without buying more leads, as an optical jack (that is supplied) is required to fit into the stereo, and older systems (2 years old +) will not have such a socket, but the manual tells you what leads you need if you want to record tapes or don't have an optical output. But there are many more features that I have not discussed here, but I found this to be a very good player and if you're new to the world of minidisc and you have the money, this is a very good buy, with clear and easy instructions throughout and an easy interface- I recorded my first disc as soon as the rechargeable battery charged up after I bought it.
