Product Specifications

This world's smallest recording MD Walkman combines the superb sound reproduction quality of digital technology and the ease and convenience of MiniDisc recording and playback in a unit virtually as small as a MiniDisc itself. New Smart Remote Control provides editing function including Titling and Move to customize your MiniDiscs and to listen tracks the way you prefer. Backlit LCD on Headphone Remote makes it easy to see the display even in low light, and offers convenient direct access to the unit's major functions. Its Shock Resistant Memory resists bumps or vibrations while the laser scans ahead on the disc and stores 40 seconds of music in memory, for interrupted skip-free playback. NIMH rechargeable battery and charger are supplied to provide greater convenience and saving over replaceable batteries. Character Input for Titling let you create or modify individual track information as the MiniDisc is being recorded. Date and Time Stamp automatically places a date and time marker on each recording for future references. Digital Synchro Recording lets you make digital copies of CDs onto a MiniDisc with synchronized operation that begins recording when digital input signal is received. Sampling Rate Converter allows MiniDisc recording from other digital media having different sampling frequencies, such as DSS and DAT, and automatically converts to MiniDisc Rate. Powerful Digital Mega Bass Sound System with 3 Position switch provides rich, deep bass tones with digital signal processing for virtually inaudible harmonic distortion. Automatic Volume Limiter System (AVLS) maintains volume output below strong signal levels, for listener comfort. High Quality Recording with Digital AGC ensures proper recording levels through Automatic Gain Control to prevent overloading distortion.
