You folks on the MD mailing list helped me create a monster!
Several months ago I succumbed to the Minidisc discussions and got a Sony, I think it's the MZR55. Now, my 7 yr old son wants a Minidisc recorder. I said, "How about a nice cassette tape recorder. They are small and can do all the same things," and he says "No they can't. They don't take those cool little square disks and I can't jump from one song to the next and they don't sound as good." Yikes. If anyone has one for sale because they want to upgrade, contact me off-list.
