Excerpt: I bought my first minidisc recorder in 1997, and therefore have a siginificant level of experience with the format and its potential. Unfortunately my previous minidisc recorder developed a fault (Sony MDS-JE 930)and ended up requiring replacement. Wanting to avoid failure of the unit again I wanted a stronger more durable unit, and was prepared to spend extra to achieve that. The end result was the MDS-JB940. It is built like a tank, with a solid aluminium front.
Pros: Minidisc long play, digital coaxial inputs / outputs, excellent edit facilities .
Cons: Complicated program method for track replay .
