Sharp's MD-MS722 is a favorite among minidisc enthusiasts. This portable audio player/recorder offers several easy-to-use features, such as a jog shuttle control that makes it convenient to spin through up to 100 characters for quick titling.

With the supplied optical digital audio cable, you can record and select individual songs from other digital sources to create your own customized minidiscs. Editing options include divide, combine, erase, and move, giving you full control over homespun recordings. This player also has a microphone input.

The MD-MS722 has a 40-second anti-skip memory buffer and a three-mode digital X- Bass system. The extended-life lithium battery adapter offers up to 10 hours of playback time and eight hours of recording time.

Supplied accessories include LCD remote control, headphones, rechargeable lithium battery, AC adapter/recharger, optical cable with miniplug, hand strap, battery case, and carrying case.

The MD-MS722 measures 3.5 by 1 by 3.25 inches and weighs 0.5 pounds.

Customer Reviews

The controls are very easy to use and the sound quality is beyond description with words.

I write this review in hope that it will find its way to Sharp and tell them "The slot loading is the way to go!".

I was a little hesitant to buy a minidisc player, because I already have CD's, and portable CD players are cheaper.

This is the perfect product for those of you looking for a portable recordable audio player but are shocked at the high prices and low memory size of MP3 players. With the new USB to digital optical products out on the market, it has become very easy to digitally transfer your MP3's to minidisc at a low-cost, without having to worry about a loss of quality. The Sharp also has a great analog sound as well.
Although I have graduated to the much higher cost Sony MD-90, this was my first, and to tell you the truth they perform almost as well.
The final reason fof purchasing this machine over an MP3 player is that for the price of 1 Sony MagicGate 64MB Memory Card (holding an hour of music), you can get 60 Multi-recordable Minidiscs (holding close to 70 hours of music) Need I say more?

I have used the internet extensively to research my mini disc purchased and finally decided on the Sharp MDMS722. The reviews I found at Amazon.com were very helpful to me and I LOVE this player/recorder. It is small, convenient, and the sound is excellent. (except for the headphones) I use a pair of Sony headphones MDR-A17. The jog dial is very easy to use and the instructions are easy to understand. I have a Sony home mini disc recorder at home and the controls of the Sharp are pretty close to these. I have never had any trouble with using and editing the discs between these two players. The 50$ rebate really helped. I read that the Sharp 702? had had some trouble and sure enough, I found several refurbished models at egghead auction. They were selling for as much as I paid for the MDMS722 NEW! Boy, it sure pays to shop around. I'm glad that Amazon has a forum for the consumer to share their real life reviews of products.

I just got this player 3 days ago. It is incredibly easy to use(record and play). The sound quality is the best I've ever heard. If you're concerned w/battery life, this new lithium ion rechargable battery lasts forever! Also, the jog dial makes titling a lot easier than using regular buttons. The bass also sounds really good and doesn't drown out everything else. Believe it or not, the remote helps. It seems kind of stupid at first( I thought it was when I saw it), but it really isn't. I put the player in my backpack, and use the remote and headphones outside of it. Its really nice to have. Overall, whether or not you are good w/electronics, or a beginner,this is the best choice. Sharp included an analog cable and a digital optical cable so you can record right away. Its ease of use, quality, looks, features, and best sound quality make the 722 the best choice.

I was a little hesitant to buy a minidisc player, because I already have CD's, and portable CD players are cheaper. However I really enjoy this product. First, it's much more portable than a CD player, it easily fits in my pocket along with my wallet and keys. The discs are tiny and easy to take along as well, and are conveniently stored in cases, so you don't have to worry about them scratching. Secondly, recording features are really cool. The digital/optical line results in near perfect copying of CD's. I've also used a small clip-mike to bootleg concerts (with the artist's permission!), and as long as the sensitivity is turned all the way down, to compensate for the loud noise, the quality is excellent. 2 1/2 hours of mono recording is pretty cool, too.
The other product this competes against is MP3 players. I think Minidisc is better suited for most people, because to listen to different songs you can just put in a new minidisc, you don't have to be near your computer and download new songs. As portable products are made for people on the go, this makes more sense. And of course it's still possible to record your MP3's to minidisc, it just takes more time.
I think the Sharp 722 is the best Minidisc in the price range because of the lengthy battery life and the small, squarish shape. The remote can be useful, and the jogwheel makes functions such as adding and deleting tracks intuitive. It comes with a digital cable, which is a must-buy for other recorders that don't come with one.

Why would anyone want to buy an mp3 player? I almost did, and I'm glad I didn't! I got the Sharp 722 and it is totally kool! This thing looks like a nuclear reactor, but not even that could make this baby skip. I droped this on the cement while I was walkin home from school and it didn't skip once! The sound is almost exactly the same as what you recorded it from, and I've played in a band for 5 years, so I can really hear it. You can even hook the thing up to a mic, and make your bands ( or whatever) recordings!I've already used it to record concerts from my school band! Sharp gives you everything you need! Much more than other MD. You get a rechargeable battery that basically lasts 4ever, and then if it does run out, You can plug your MD into a wall jack, or if you still want to go, Sharp included a little screw in thing so that the MD opperates on 1 AAA battery! The sound is supurb, and the best thing is, for a $3 cord at Radio Shack, and a couple of Mini Disks, you can save hundreds on CD's. All you have to do is connect your MD to your computer and download free mp3's on to it! Why buy an mp3 player when you can have this for about 1/100 the cost for the music? Sharp also includes a cord so you can record off your VCR, your TV, and I even recorded the remix to Magic Carpet Ride on my Triple Play 2001 Playstation game! Yep, hooked it right up to it! Now, that I have one, everyone else wants it. So get on the band wagon, the more people to get on, the faster prices will lower! Email me with any questions about the player or MiniDisc's. I've set up a site that tells you everything about MiniDiscs and the 722, but Amazon wont let me tell you the link, so just email me for the URL.
