Features: Sony's 10th anniversary Minidisc recorder, with several changes from previous models:
ATRAC DSP Type-S (see description under MDS-JB980). (System Controller/ATRAC DSP IC: CXD2678-202GA)
Unit is 30g lighter and 2.6mm thinner than the MZ-N1 (accomplished with new optical pickup and motor (30% thinner) and miniaturized main IC (33% smaller)).
LP4 audio downloading at 64x realtime (LP2 @ 32x?, SP @ ?x).
Downloading handled by SonicStage Ver 1.5 software (no mention of OpenMG Jukebox). Note: Japanese model ships with Japanese SonicStage, which cannot be installed on non-Japanese systems.
(Correction) USB and charging connections are made through the docking stand only.
Auto time-mark (places track marks at regular intervals [user settable from 1 to 99 minutes] during recording).
Personal disk memory on MZ-N10 now remembers group mode (on/off) setting as well.
User settable option (NORMAL/QUICK) for the unit's fast forward and reverse engagement delay (selecting QUICK reduces battery life). (Shared by all 2003 MZ-Nxx units, except, perhaps the MZ-N910).
Rehearsal Mode: holding the track mark button down for a few seconds enters rehearsal mode, allowing fine +/- adjustment of the track mark's position, just like home Minidisc decks.
Available in silver and grey.
This one is sliver colour, Retail price was $599+tax
has all the parts, discs, manuel and box, except the headset. and I'll give you about 15 MD disks.
I am asking for $200 OBO for all of them.
