Sony MZ-NH600 Hi-MD Walkman

 

Sony's MZ-NH600 is a digital player that brings a lot to the table - removable, rewritable 1 GB disc capacity, great sound and versatility - but it lacks that all-important 'cool' factor.

High portable storage capacity ; Speedy File Transfers ; Cheap storage media

Proprietary format ; Limited LCD Screen

If you think removable media is the way to go, then the MZ-NH600 is a good basic player and would be especially attractive if you already have a collection of MiniDiscs. However, if you want extras like a docking station/charger, LCD remote, radio, or...

Sony MZ-NH600 Hi-MD Walkman

 

Nobody seems to notice, you can record from an analog input with this device. It can work just like a cassette deck but records digitally. Also allows analog recordings to be devided into tracks on the device.

Can record anything from digital or analog source. AA battery

Sony proprietary format. No microphone input (for that, you have to up the range)

Sony MZ-NH600 Hi-MD Walkman

 

This is my third MD player and by far the best

It uses AA batteries, they last 20 hours and I never have to worry about finding a wall outlet on a trip (just a 7-11)

Not enough people think they are cool. Could use a back light

Product Specifications

The MZ-NH600D is an ideal solution for digital music fans looking for a high capacity portable player that won't break the bank. With enough battery life to support hours and hours of music, and the rugged endurance to survive a marathon, this Hi-MD recorder is ready to go anywhere. With Hi-MD technology, users can record up to 45 hours of music at up to 100 times transfer speed on one disc, while still enjoying the extensive battery life, compact design and robustness for which MD players are recognized. Removable, re-recordable Hi-MD media provides music lovers with unlimited storage capacity to build an infinite library of their favorite songs. Hi-MD Walkman recorders incorporate the ATRAC3plus format, which enables the user to burn more audio files to Hi-MD or indeed standard MiniDisc. ATRAC3 is a high quality audio compression technology that Sony developed to effectively reduce the size of audio files while preserving more of the sound quality. The new Hi-MD equipment is compatible with existing MiniDiscs, although the new Hi-MD discs will not operate with the older systems. Why choose Hi-MD over Hard Disc (HDD)? Unlimited Capacity - Where as HDD has a fixed capacity, Hi-MD offers you the flexibility of choosing the capacity you want, from 1GB to 200GB. Battery Life - Hi-MD uses a removable AA battery that gives you up to 27 hours of life, compared with around 8 hours from HDD, a figure that diminishes as the battery ages. Music and Data Recorder - Hi-MD allows you to record directly from Hi-fi, giving you high quality microphone recordings. HDD simply doesn't give you this option. Shareable Media - HDD has a fixed capacity, embedded disc where the Hi-MD offers removable, low cost and variable capacity discs. With HDD, if you lose your hard disc, you lose everything but Hi-MD gives you the opportunity to store your data safely on removable discs.
