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...

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.

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 more)
