Quality Minidisc Recorders?
Posted 02 December 2009 - 02:14 PM
I am still running off MD SP (as in, actual recording to disks) and I am after the top of the line relevant equipment in terms of sound quality. Does anyone know what a good Deck is and a good portable player is?

You'll get 10 opinions from 10 different people, everyone has their favorites. I really love the sound I get recording optical real time to SP on my JA20ES deck and stationary playback at work through the line out of my MZ-R50, feeding my HeadAmp and Grado's, of course. Nearly indistinguishable from the original CD.
You will have plenty of time to discuss soon about decks sound quality because I intend to help a french friend who want to sell his collection - that is the real word - of MD decks. More than one hundred units !
List and details will arrive soon.
People from SonyInsider MD forum will have the priority because they love MD format. He is not a professionnal, just a particular who love so much MD that he decided to buy decks. Now he miss place and think it is the right time to make others MD fans happy... He miss time to so I am here to help the transaction.

The best portable without question is the MZ-RH1, which is also the only unit that will UPLOAD off your SP (or LP2 or LP4) discs if you have live recordings made with your SP unit.

For those arriving late to MDs, and from experience, what can you distinguish from the original?
e.g. the odd cymbal squeek?, shortened decays?, distorted attacks?
I ask, because I'm rather new to MDs, and those CDs that I have recorded so far (digital on sony 4.0 atrac), I haven't noticed anything yet. Tell me, after a lot of listening of JA's recordings, do you start to notice differences? (I understand that JA's were the best decks, so should get the closest, and your experience will therefore be most welcome.) I may even consider a second-hand JA ...
