The player itself is really small, light and sturdy.
If you sing in a choir this recorder gives you clear quality of sound to help you learn your part.
This beats any other portable music player by an infinite degree.

I'm happy to relate that this digital recorder has exceeded all of my expectations. As a musician, I can tell you that this device is extremely intuitive and easy to use, much like a digital camera. I quickly learned how to convert several file formats -- wav to mp3, for example -- which means ultra-fast review of my performances. And since recording levels are automatic, I've not had to worry about distortion or poor audio quality. With sophisticated technology of this sort, I no longer need to hire engineers to capture my location performances; it's not rocket science. Kudos to Sony for this excellent product.

I really thought Sony stopped making thier MD players. I always loved them, i had 2 before but then I hopped on the IPOD wagon. MD Players capture the greatest features of every recording/playing medium, by that I mean, The recordability of casette tapes, the clarity and selection speed of cd players, and the ease of use and versatility of mp3 players. And the sound, first off any Sony product will sound wayyy better than anything else. The last mp3 player I bought was a NWZ-A72b, which in my opinion is the hands down best sounding, best feature loaded mp3 player out. The sound on that thing was incomparable, only to Minidisc, which gives you a warm studio sound. And you can record anything you want onto a minidisc, how f==in cool is that? Anything you want you can record. Plus now that MD's are 1GB capacity makes your whole music collection safe in a new home. I think MD players are the best form of music player, you have infinite space, as compared to a 30gb Ipod, just buy the 2 dollar MD's and the music or data (yeah you can put pictures, and stuff from your computer like home movies, etc. onto minidiac.) will never ever end. I needed a better recorder for my guitar because my Sony ICD-UX80 was'nt doing as good, plus the batteries for that thing go quick. This MD player is the size of an actual MD just a lil bigger, it's got the illuminated remote, and the weak electret microphone. It's a really attractive package, picutures do it no justice at all. It looks like something from the future. The sound is amazing!! it's more organic than anything else, and it definitely is great for recording yourself playing an instrument. A real musician should probably have this thing. My only negative with it is that the battery charges in 60 minutes, which is no problem, but it only lasts like 8 hours. And when you use the mic it all about positioning to get the best sound. BUY THIS!!

I just got this hi-minidisc recorder/player the other week and just got my optical cable to use to record using the cd function of my blu-ray player. I am just loving it and once I get Windows XP on my Mac using Parallels, I can use the computer functions that came with it. Of course I can still upload my recordings onto my MacBook. I finally decided to get this portable recorder because I saw that everyone on the subway car that I ride every morning was using either an iPhone, or an iPod. And this is coming from an Apple lover.

I bought the hi-md player because I wanted portability and cd-quality sound. I could do that with an iPod touch 64gb, but how many lossless albums can a person put on that. Not much. Of course the Hi-MD disc is 1 gigabyte, but the whole idea of owning one is to hold the disc in your hand. This player is for audiophiles.

I got this wonderful feeling as I was changing a disc cartridge. You just don't get that with an mp3 player. I did choose the more expensive route, but I chose something that will keep on giving. It even has a replaceable rechargeable battery stick. Replaceable discs(duh). And it is in a sturdy metal casing. It even comes with a cloth carrying sleeve.

I would recommend it to anyone. It also comes with a stereo microphone.

I believe it will stand the test of time. A music player does not need to be popular to be good.

Call me old fashioned, but this player is the last of its kind. And I love it.

2010 and I just bought a MZ-RH1. Why the hell did I do that ?
Because it does record. Simply put. I play guitar, bass, and I want to have a small music player that can record with me. And I am not interested in something that records to a lossy compression format like MP3. The iPod and most players are part of that read-only culture and I want to go back to the read and write culture our societies have known for centuries if not more. Go check the "Larry Lessig's read-only culture" presentation. We must carry players that do record, with no restrictions. We must go back to having the culture be our property and no longer accept an imposed read-only culture from majors. The minidisc is a possible path. I record sounds, music. I record bass lines and guitar lines and exchange the minidisc where this has been recorded using PCM (no lossy compression). We move files to PC and back. The minidisc is heavily used in some creatives circles, and being a niche isn't a problem. But the iPod and read-only culture, thanks but no thanks. Just spent 300 euro on a brand new MZ-RH1, got a MZ-R55, over 100 MiniDiscs here, used them as a journalist for years, as a musician for over 10 years and people are just amazed by what we can do with a recording portable device. My friends have iPods, and read-only players, and they love the MiniDisc. The way I can record anything anywhere, swap disks and the sound quality. DJs and consumers bought vinyl disks, and after years of the press explaining to us the vinyl was dead, dead, and dead well. Here in Paris we got shops full of vinyl disks, DJs use them and people like the sound. The Minidisc is far from dead, and what matters is : a portable, small recorder with PCM no-lossy compression, you carry everywhere and doubles as a media player. USB to connect, drop music and PC files, pictures, whatever. Record, play, create.
