Aw man, MiniDisc. I have this one, it kicked so much ass back in the days of cassette players. I wanted to get a HiMD player when they were introduced but then I got a solid-state player instead... I feel like a traitor now
Yet another one of Sony's proprietary technologies that they tried to force on the public. Glad to see it go.
You have no idea what you're talking about, do you?
I was under the impression that minidiscs as well as betamax were used a lot in the media industry because of their higher quality.
They may have had higher sound quality than audio cassettes, but not CDs. They didn't hold nearly as much data as a CD so they used lossy compression to store a similar amount of audio. I had a friend that used to use a minidisc recorder to record live concerts, but because of the lossy compression the resulting audio did not translate that well to other lossy formats like MP3. It sounded okay converted to CD, but DAT was superior for that sort of thing.
