  • Summary: Came on time. Everything was as described. Unit works well. Everything was as expected but for the packaging and I understand that because it is a discontinued Item and is New but Old. Hoping it holds up over time.

Good recorder

Linus Peter Sweers, Amazon
13 August 2010
  • Summary: This is a great recorder. It supports the old MD format and the slightly newer MDLP format. It does not support Hi-MD. It is a good all around recorder for the cost. Keep in mind MD is a dead product. Here is the not so great part: There is no digital out! Only a digital input.

sad to see "not available"

NRS3, Amazon
23 April 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this machine 18 months ago and have loved every use of it. I have not had a problem with this unit playing even warped discs. The only thing I wish it had was a peak level readout when playing back discs (it's only active during recording).

Great for the price.

DJ Steve Powers "ATL DJ", Amazon
3 March 2008
  • Summary: As a DJ, I have been using the Sony MXD3 and MXD40 because they have the CD player and 4x burn speed to MD feature, they sold for around $375 back in 2002. Unfortunately, I can no longer find any new CD to MD burn unit except the Tascam unit which sells for $800.

Could use a headphone jack, but otherwise excellent.

14 November 2007
  • Summary: This is an excellent sounding, easy to use minidisc unit. The only obvious feature I can think of that it's missing is a headphone jack. I bought mine through Amazon and it was the best price around with free (and fast) shipping.

Amazon Feedback Person, Amazon
11 October 2007
  • Summary: "...Plain & simple why I hate this item? There is no headphone jack output. Plain & simple as to why it is that I hate this item enough to give it only a one star rating. Unless you plug this mini disc player into your amplifier or a secondary listening source input , you cannot listen to this mini...

Sony MiniDisc MDS-JE-480

Allen J. Feinberg "TimeforChange", Amazon
26 July 2007
  • Summary: I have been recording music as a hobby since I was a kid in the mid 1960s. I am familiar with all of the pre-computer formats. I find little joy in messing with a computer to make music. The best sound comes from the older, analog formats. If you have a good LP and turntable, that sounds the best.
