The Underrated Mini With Maximum Potential

May 4, 2008
Mini disc players are completely portable audio players that use mini discs instead of regular CDs.

A mini disc player is an audio device that reads audio files and sound data stored mini discs. Mini discs are much smaller than regular CD's and has a higher capacity of data storage. Mini disc players are made to store up to 80 minutes of digital audio. Mini discs are quite popular in Asia and are sold in a variety of formats, from walkmans to players for your car.

Mini Disc players are most often powered by regular AA-batteries. Make sure that the model you choose has a clear indicator of battery life so the energy won't unexpectedly run out. Lightweight models are available in the market if you plan on taking the mini disc player with you for a jog.

Buying a belt clip for your mini disc player is sometimes necessary for portability. Some mini disc players have built in clips already. An anti-skip function is available on some models. The anti-skip function works by reading ahead in the track that is being played and saving that information it to the memory, if the device is jarred, playback continues smoothly while the laser finds its place once again.

A lot of the mini disc players available today are portables - they are small, lightweight, sleek and stylish. But that doesn't mean they only come in portable sizes. Mini disc players can be installed in your car stereo system too. There are component sized mini disc players available, usually with a CD player on one side and a mini disc player on the other. It is important to know the different features of mini disc players before purchasing one not just because of its cost but also because of its performance. One model may have good quality sound but it may not have the added features that you want, so it's best to ask first.

Most of the people who do buy mini disc players buy it to record, not just play. Some models available are only capable of playing and are not made to record. So make sure to check if this feature is available on the unit you choose. If you want to make your own mini discs, buying a mini disc player with a recording function is a necessity. It is advised to look for models with easy to use record and hold buttons.

Choose a mini disc player that is suitable to use in your daily activities. When buying a mini disc player, it may be advisable for you to check out the various features available in the mini disc players, so you can make a wise decision based on your needs and budget.

One example of a mini disc player is the MZ-RH910. This mini disc player is capable of recording on 1GB Hi-MD discs, which can hold up to 45 hours of compressed music and can be re-recorded thousands of times. The Sonic Stage software required for Pc-to-player transfers enables you to upload recordings to your computer with ease. The MZ-RH910 features a six line OLED for displaying track and title information and battery life indicator. OLED is a new display technology that is brighter and easier to read than an LCD display. The MZ-RH910 measures 3.5 by 3.5 inches, .75 inch thick, and weighs a little over 4 ounces. Each mini disc can store 177MB of digital audio, which makes this more than just a frivolous buy, but rather an investment in the future.
