Here are some photographs of the new Sharp player. A translation of the original Sharp publicity release is available.
The MD-SS312 comes in two colours - silver and blue.
The machine includes the single-shot random playback feature - it plays all tracks, in random order, once, then shuts down. The machine also has an optional autoplay mode. When you insert the disk, play starts immediately.
40 seconds of anti-shock memory, and has the 20-bit (only!) ATRAC.
A back-lit LCD remote control. This is the main feature and a lot of work has gone into this. It includes an alarm clock with its own battery and Sony-like "jog" dials set at 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock that control machine functions. The case is translucent and the guts can be seen. The display is odd - the writing is set against a background that seems very far away giving the impression that the words (or the Sharp No-Name-Fish) are floating in air. This has proved impossible to photograph. My apologies.
