....and a few questions, I'm a novice to the MD world, want a minidisc mainly for recording gigs and rehearsals, (jazz band small venues mainly). I'm writing from the UK and have a budget of around 150stirling. These pages have been really helpful but I have a few queries? I'm attracted to Sharp DR420 because it seems to have a good reputation for live recording, but lots of posts from people who seem to know what they're talking about say wait for 'Hi-MD', but is this new technology just a let down? I do want to upload to PC and burn CD's, will Hi-MD make this any easier? I basically want a reliable, relatively easy to use machine, not worried about high spec stuff, unless it really makes a difference.
Thanks for your troubles!
