Report Mp3 Support? Sounds Cool But...... in Minidisc Posted April 25, 2005 I really don't care if you guys use casette tapes--whatever floats your boat. But complaining about the obvious limitations of a severely outdated format is what's going on, and it's just a waste of time.MD wasn't designed for extended battery life. It wasn't designed for superior sound quality. It was designed for exactly what it does, which makes it a good design. A good device is one that does exactly what it's designed to do, and MD does admirably replace the usage of a compact casette. It does not, however, replace nor is even the same THING as an MP3 player.I'm not beating up on MD. I'm actually defending it. =) Yes, I've had a change of heart but the arguments are the same. MD is old, it's fifteen plus years old, "upgrades" notwithstanding. Don't expect it to be as good as the new stuff, and don't claim it's what it's not. It's not fair to compare MD to an HDAP. That's not what MD was designed for. And it's not fair for Sony to try and make MD compete with HDAPs.
