I think it was always there but well concealed wrt NetMD. I think Sonicstage required tweaks/patches but the h/w supported it. It's not an option for *recording*, of that I am relatively sure.


Edit: I found it - in SonicStage if you right click a track (file) and select convert, one of the options is 105kbps.


Edit 2: looks as if SS does NOT allow transfer to NetMD devices of that format (however they mention it can be copied to AtracCD or an AtracDevice). I am guessing the very first NetMD/MDLP devices had it as an option, but it was withdrawn (there's no sign of it even in the earliest widely available model, the MZ-N1). Anyone?

It would be great if 105k could be transferred to NetMD devices. 105k is currently my go-to bitrate for large-ish Hi-MD compilations. Over 20 hours on a 1GB disc and the quality is quite listenable on the go. So maybe 7+ hours on an 80 min blank in HiMD mode, or 3.5 as MD mode...

Maybe this was the thread I was thinking of, but Avrin seemed to think that as well as being able to rip CD's to 105kbps 105kbps was in fact supported on Hi-MD formatted discs, but I guess not legacy MD formatted discs.
