I recently returned to vintage audio and began collecting vinyl albums. I would like to buy a Minidisc player/recorder to record a few of them. I know very little about the medium, as it was in its infancy when I was in college and I couldn't afford to get into it. However, now I would like to add a MD player to my mid-90s Sony component system.
My question is this: Can you suggest a player and recorder (that I might actually be able to find online) that would offer the best recording/playback sound quality? I understand that the MDS-JA55ES is supposed to be the best, but there are none to be found. Which two or three readily available units would you suggest I look for?
I haven't set a definite budget yet, but I think I would like to keep the purchase at or around $300 if possible.
Thanks in advance for any advice you might have to offer.
