I appreciate minidisc is a bit of an obsolete medium these days, but for those people looking for a backup player this excellent player (it won't record by the way) is ideal.

[B]Hi
Thanks for posting.
It is good practice to also add the merchant and price to the title. It helps people who are just browsing through. And in my experience your post will get a few more “hot” votes.

They are well worth taking a look at.
Kind regards Andy

Wait, have we travelled back in time to the 90s?

i hate to think which mobile phone these people still use

It's a little pointless having a player isn't it??? I remember you could briefly buy mini disc albums but that fizzled out really quickly! I still have my player/recoring unit! It still works, and it's amazing!

The best for recording free source and off of other units and 45 hours battery life from a single aa battery!

Any decent cassette walkmans on offer?

I dug mine out again earlier this year, I was marvelling at the build quality and the sound signature was excellent (Sounded completely different to a 320kbps encoded MP3).

Still have several hundred discs in my cupboard, many which I still struggle to replace with more convenient formats. I certainly do not miss the amount of time I used to spend naming tracks though lol.

I know many musicians who like the ability to record bits on the go, but I'm not sure i see the value of a player these days. if you desperately want the better sound quality, use better mp3s.
#15
Still used a lot by singers and bands for backing tracks
#16
MD Recorders are still popular with media/TV/Radio companies. I remember importing an MP3 Player from Japan and getting the little IR keyboard for naming tracks quickly. It was all very high Tech for the time!

I recently picked up the slim Sony Player, one of the last models they made and the size of it for an electromechanical device is amazing!
#17
Used to love my MD player. had one in my car for a few years too as MD's could be thrown about without fear of getting damaged unlike CD's.

Then along came MP3's....
#18
Yes that brings back the memories! I used to have the Sony MD Head Unit with CD Changer then upgraded to an Alpine MD Head Unit with Changer. It was brilliant!

I have hundreds of minidiscs and still use them daily on my separates system.
The reason i still use them as there has been no removable physical media to replace Minidisc that fits into a hifi system which records. There are SD card players but they are rarer than new Minidisc players.

Still recording vinyl and radio on these disks which are still available new from sony centres and also online shops.

As to name the tracks you should of got a full size deck and plugged a PC ps2 keyboard into it to name them quickly. Anyhow plenty of second hand full size machines available on ebay now going cheap for the low end stuff and portables.

Hehe, I was only a kid with a Saturday job at the time :thumbsup:

Thanks to Dixons insurance I managed to get a top of the line Discman, then 3 Sharp Mini-disc recorders out of just one policy :w00t:

Every time I found a minor fault they just gave me a brand new model.

Saw someone on the Tube the other day using a walkman cassette player.

Of course, far better sound quality than anything comparable.

Because it is old technology, it doesn't mean it is bad.;-)
#23
Still have the Sony mini-disc player somewhere. Will dig it out to show the kids. Was hoping to use it in my car but my current car sound system still works okay however speed bumps etc does not help

Wow you managed to get something out of DIxons!

They are/were the most evasive crooked bunch of gits i have ever come across in a shop.

The best i got out of them was a second hand walkman with a dint in for a new walkman that had problems. Barstewards that i have never dealt with since!

#25
used to use one of these (i.e. MD) when they came out, cost about the same price as the larger iPods (about £300 in its day).

sound quality excellent

didnt have the problems in those days, trying to work out what to listen to, only ever carried a couple of MDs around with me, so not much to chose from :)

and they were better built than 'mp3' players today

shame they are outdated for everyday users
#26
My fav minidisc player was my aiwa AM HX-50 it was awesome and since it had a rechargeable battery it was super thin compared to others at the time. I miss my minidisc player :-(
#27
Pity it's just a player could do with another backup recorder .
I use these all the time for recording live bands . I have looked at the new sd card recorders they are still way to bulky . The editing fuctions and sound quality blows all mp3 recorders out of the window . An i pod wishes it could sound as good , i have compared them side by side and minidisc wins easily . It might be an out of date format but it's not an inferior product . Not everyone want's to drag and drop music.
#28
I bought an Aiwa AM-NX9 for £30 from Morgan Computers a few years ago and I thought that would be the last time that I would see a Mini-Disc player for sale! It's a shame that this model doesn't have the Net MD feature though.
#29
I had a MP3 Minidisc player, with slim rechargeable battery. Transfer MP3 albums across to it, could store 5 or so albums on a mini disc, no need to fiddle about with names, it was brilliant.

Sad that the format died out, they were so much better than CDs, what with being able to swap tracks around, cut tracks up etc.

I used to use my Minidisc as a dicatphone as well. I got it out a few months back, still works, will save it for when the Zune dies I think...
#30
if you are going to get one the recorder ones are great especially for recording lectures or dj mixes for example!

My thoughts exactly. :whistling:
#33
I still have 3 minidisc players (one at home, one in the car that I had to put back in as my mp3 player was stolen, and a portable one in the loft somewhere).

The big advantage with them over mp3 is that they don't insert gaps between tracks, eg on a continuous mix album where track markers have been inserted.

mp3s are rubbish at that and ruin a continuous mix with the little pauses, and the software fudges that winamp etc use aren't as good - there's always a slight pause...My old ipod was terrible with mix albums.
#34
I remember my friend paid aaround £140 for one of these in 1999 :w00t:
#35
pity these died so fast...these 'smaller cd's' were great...had a personal, in-car and home separate ( all Sony ) were all excellent, esp the in-car as could fill a glovebox with much more music than equivalent cds and tapes...r.i.p. MD lol...but...technology / the world moves on...right ?
#36
Sound quality on these was awesome. Still get my old Sharp one out every once in a while for the nostalgia.
#37
I've still got my MiniDisc walkman from back in 2000 I think! They were ultra-cool gadgets to have with the remote controls. All the classic tunes of the times were on mine like Alice Deejay - Better off Alone, Rank1 -Airwave, MC Neat DJ Luck - With a Little Bit of Luck, SFA - Flowers.......

Heres mine:
