“I was never much of a fan of Mini-disc, the first...”

Written on: 09/10/2005 by Deadlock (7 reviews written)

I was never much of a fan of Mini-disc, the first generation attempts sounded splashy and muddled, with obvious artifaction of the audio stream, even at modest listening levels.

This 4th generation Sony MZ-R501 Mini-disc player appears to have ironed out the wrinkle's as copies sound crisp and clear; especially when using the supplied Optical lead, that connects to CD players or PC's with suitable sockets, it will even automatically index the tracks in more or less the correct places… Read Full Review

'......none of this auto-setup rubbish!'

<br>Quite!!.....and an extremely useful review too. I must say that I've never found ANYTHING from Sony that doesn't sound at least very good.

“This is a really good minidisc recorder. Excellent...”

Written on: 29/05/2003 by Tom. (1 review written)

This is a really good minidisc recorder. Excellent value for money. One of the wierd things is, though, it comes supplied with a digital fibre optical cable, so most people have to go out and buy an analogue cable. I think an analogue cable should come included instead. I dropped this minidisc recorder as well, and there's nothing wrong with it. (By the way that's no reason to go round dropping it.) I think everyone should have one, because you can record from almost any source with an output… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/09/2002 by Luke. (1 review written)

As soon as I bought my sony MZ-R501 minidisk, I didn't even need to read the manual, it's so simple to use. When I recorded a minidsic on it I was really suprised how much better it sounded than on the original cd. Of course you could spend a bit more and really top up the sound quality, but for what your spending then your really really getting value for money. The only thing I don't like about it is that on the display, there is no backlight, but Ive got used to it now. I really recommend… Read Full Review

“The Sony MZ-R501 is a superb minidisc recorder...”

Written on: 27/03/2002 by Amazon Customer. (1 review written)

The Sony MZ-R501 is a superb minidisc recorder featuring many important features such as Mdlp- enabling 320 mins of music on one disk.Enables digital or analogue recording from many sources. Looks great, comes with optical digital lead, ac adapter, carry case, rechargeable battery. Includes remote control with almost all features controllable on it. A very good player but if recording in lp4 mode when lapelling tracks there is a limited amount of characters and they run out fairly quickly… Read Full Review
