PC into minidisc will go
1 April 2005 | 0
Sony has unveiled its new mini-disc player designed to be connected to a PC. With this new connection, digital music — ripped CD files and Internet downloads — can be uploaded and downloaded between the player and a desktop computer.
In line with copyright protection, before digital music files can be transferred from the PC to the player, they must be converted from MP3 to Sony’s proprietary Attrac format. All of the music is managed and manipulated using Sony’s OpenMG Jukebox application.
There are three models in the NetMD range — the flagship MZ-N1, the MZ-N505 and the MZ-N707. With a full magnesium body the MZ-N1 sports a stylish look and offers an equally attractive battery life of up to 110 hours. It also bundles a battery charging cradle which incorporates the USB plug and play connection. Prices for the NetMD range start at €300 for the MZ-N505, ranging up to €440 for the top of the range MZ-N1.
