Product Description

The Sony MZ-R700PC Recordable MiniDisc Walkman offers features such as G Protection Jog Proof and up to 53 hours of battery life, using Stamina batteries (not supplied). The R700 also features MiniDisc Long Play (MDLP) for extended recording time. This feature offers the user 2 or 4 times the playing time of Standard Play in digital stereo, allowing up to 320 minutes playing time on one 80 minute MiniDisc – that’s over 5 hours! The MZ-R700PC comes supplied with a PC Link cable, to link your MiniDisc Walkman to a PC. In this way, files already downloaded from the Internet or from the PC’s CD drive can be easily transferred onto MiniDisc. Supplied with rechargeable battery and carrying case with belt clip.

Amazon.co.uk Review

The Sony MZ-R700PC offers portable MiniDisc recording from just about any source possible, digital or analogue. It looks the business too, with a smart and compact case and a purposeful set of controls. There’s also a remote control, which carries the vital playback controls. The front sports a plethora of buttons and a small LCD. The back of the player is less impressive, it lacks the metal casing of the front and the bulge for the single AA battery spoils the otherwise smooth lines. Sony claim over 50 hours of playback time, but this is only if you use a conventional alkaline battery. The rechargeable battery offers around 12 hours of typical use.

The MZ-R700PC has one major and eagerly awaited feature, the ability to record directly from your PC . Despite what you might assume, when recording from your PC it’s not done digitally. Basically your PC is used as a music player and the analogue signal piped out through the USB cable. This can lead to some less than ideal sound quality, particularly when recording from highly compressed sound formats. It also means it records in real-time. If possible it’s best to record digitally using the optical cable directly from a CD player. You can record in LP2 or LP4 modes, which can mean squeezing four CDs onto a single disc, but again you pay for that in sound quality. It has all the functions you’ll need for a full recording MiniDisc although the process can be fiddly, particularly labelling the tracks.

The MZ-R700PC includes nearly all the features found in Sony’s top of the range recording players but at a worthwhile cost saving. The ability to record directly from PCs is a bit of a kludge, but can make life a lot easier if you already have a large music collection on your PC and don’t fancy the limited capacity of an MP3 player.–Miles Berkeley
