Still going strong here with optical recording (SP mode) and plenty of recorders and players to last me 2 lifetimes.
The minidisc does seem to have a real smooth sound. I could never like the iPods, no matter how much I tried.
DRM killed MD more than anything else. The latter gen Hi-MD units with digital amps are the bomb and few can match up to the Auvi units.
While we are on the subject. Does anyone have a source for cheap blank disks?
Listening to Love over Gold pulled from my AudioMecca Creatura CD Player way back when. It's awesome.
