[Portables] [Disks & Accessories] [Decks, Minisystems, Boomboxes & Car] [Cameras]


Comes in two versions, this and the MZ-EP10 which has a less rugged design. The feature that sets these apart from the other Sony players on the market is the slot-in loading. Just jam the disk towards the top of the machine, and the case cover obligingly moves out of the way. If you've got the disk the right way round that is, so don't jam it too hard. There is an eject lever that can also be operated blind. The LCD remote controller is the same as used for the MZ-E50 and shows disk and track titles in Roman characters (assuming that your disk has Roman character titling of course). There is a loudness suppressor switch (AVLS).

Designed to be operated blind, in a pocket or bag.

Comes with a rechargeable NiH chewing gum battery NH9WM and a standard AA, either of which can be put into the same battery compartment.
