Hi, I finally decided to abandon the mp3s and move to MD. And I have a question for you MD experts. Is there any difference in sund quality between a MD recorded on the deck recorder with type R and a MD recorded on portable recorder with type R? I'm not sure if I should buy a deck and a MD player or just a Portable MD recorder. What do you guys think?

There won't, I think be any discernable difference between recording on a deck and a portable if done digitally. Analogue recording and playback may be a different matter, since most decks will have higher quality components and circuitry.
I only do live recording with my portable (an N707).
I'd recommend using a deck for all other recording as editing can be very fiddly on a portable.

Thanks for the info! I'll start looking for a good inexpensive MD deck then.

One of the best value decks at the moment is the Sony MDS-JE780. It's got pretty much all the features you could want - digital ins and outs, keyboard input, NetMD and the latest and best variant of ATRAC, Type-S.
I'm going for the MDS-JB980 myself, which has a slightly better spec, and is only a bit more expensive, but doesn't seem so widely available.

Thanks for the recommendation. Another question, where do you think is the best(cheapest) place to buy JE780?

Thanks,

Er, well, for me in the UK something like Avland or Hyperfi.
I think you're in the States and they don't ship, but you'll get a good deal if you hunt around on the net. Better than the shops, I'm sure.
By the way, you might also consider a portable MD player, they're very handy for music on the move. Good luck.

I see, I guess I'll wait till Sony N10 gets realeased and see if it's better than the other recorders. If it's not I think I'll just buy Sharp's MD-DS8 and JE780.

Again, Thanks a lot for the info,

Zhou
