Recommended Posts

Just acquired an old Yamaha MDX-595 Minidisc recorder...and what is odd...almost all minidisc recorders on ebay are without remote (o;


Now to the main problem....when I power it up, insert a blank MD and feed audio via SPDIF....in the frontpanel there is always "Mono" written...

thanks and cheers

I found a website where you can download the service manual and on page 17 of that manual I saw that you can set the device in a Special Test Mode and when you cancel that mode the data in RAM will be rewritten and the default setting is STEREO. So may be that is the solution of your problem.
