View Full Version : Mini Disc players

Does anyone have any recommendations for a good (reasonably priced) mini disc player/recorder.

I have surfed the web and am totally confused as to what is 'good' and what isn't:confused:

DD wants one for her birthday - she might have to settle for a CD player if I can't get my head around the techy stuff of a mini disc!!

I bought my DD1 a Sony MZ-N1 MD player for Christmas gone. She loves it....I think I paid around 300, but I think they may have come down in price.

I bought a Sony Mini Dics for my Daughter's birthday recently.

It was one that you can download music from the net.

I searched the net for prices because the one that she wanted was 200.00 in the high street shops, we bought it for 129.99 on the net.

Have you considered the Apple iPod? Your entire CD collection stored on something smaller than a CD case. Details here (http://www.apple.com/ipod/).

The Apple iPod is on DS's wish list. I'm wondering how long it will be before the price starts to reduce.

I don't know if I'm just getting old, but I'd be so worried carrying about an expensive piece of kit like that just to listen to my music!!

It will be a little while before the price starts to fall. The current versions of the iPod were only released a few months ago, so there are unlikely to be any sale prices on these. Also, Apple doen't like too much discounting on its prices.

There seem to be a steady stream of iPods on Ebay if the new prices are a bit steep.
