Sony MZ B100 MiniDisc Recorder

  • Summary: This recorder has been the best investment I have made. It is user friendly, has easy to read and understand displays, and makes great recordings using an external mic or its own internal mic. I have recommended it to several of my friends and our university radio station owns several.

Flawed, but leader in the market

Daniel A. Robinson "darobin", Amazon
24 November 2004
  • Summary: I'm a professional broadcaster, having used MD since the early 1990's, and our organization uses these for newsgathering. The main flaws of the MZ-B100 as noted elsewhere are lack of lighted LCD, and extremely slow RR/FF and other actions, due to the single AA power supply and other issues.

Nice unit

This B100 as a great replacement. It is so convenient to have the ability to record and play-back all on one unit-no cords. Cons.
