Rocking Out with the Sony Walkman Mini Disc Player

If you’re a fan of vintage electronics or Sony mini disc players, eBay has something for you. A disc-based data storage format that offers 74 to 80 minutes of music, the Sony minidisc player was sold from 1992 to March 2013. With one gigabyte of digitized audio storage, the minidisc resembles a floppy disk but is not quite as big.

Is the minidisc still available?

Although the minidisc never caught on like the MP3 or compact disk (CD), fans still embrace the technology. Like cassette tapes and vinyl records, minidiscs are still sold on eBay, and they are a cross between a CD and a cassette. They have the following specs:

  • Capacity - 80 minutes for standard size and up to 45 hours (1GB) of audio
  • Read mechanism - 780 nm laser
  • Encoding - ATRAC, linear PCM with Hi-MD
  • Usage - audio storage and data storage with Hi-MD

How are minidiscs different from CDs?

Minidiscs have a digital sound quality similar to CDs and are durable like cassettes. They are, however, more versatile than either. Cassettes allow you to erase and re-record data and come with protective cases. CDs have great sound but are also susceptible to scratches and are less than easy to handle when driving. Minidiscs have the following advantages:

  • High-quality sound
  • Erasable and re-recordable
  • Ability to add additional data by re-recording entire disc
  • Protective covering similar to a floppy disc
  • Easy transportation and storage

How are minidiscs different from MP3s?

MP3 players are portable, and they have good sound. If you want to change the songs, you must download the new music through a computer connection every time you change it. If you use a minidisc player, you only need to take one minidisc out and put another in. Although you can use memory cards, sticks, or chips with your MP3 player, they cost more than minidiscs. You can buy, for example, 25 to 50 minidiscs for around the same price as a 64MB chip. Especially when traveling, minidiscs allow you to carry a larger audio collection with less expense. Audiophiles claim that minidiscs have higher sound quality than CDs or MP3s. The difference in quality is likely to show up on something other than a portable player, but it might on more refined stereo systems at home or in automobiles.

What are some facts about Sony mini disc players?

The minidisc measures 7 x 6.75 x .50 centimeters or 2.75 by 2 21/32 by 3/16 inches. The enclosed disc has a diameter of 64 millimeters. The Sony Corporation says a blank minidisc recorder can be re-recorded up to one million times, but this is the first time anyone has likely tested this promise. The minidisc could, however, be damaged by equipment failure or physical damage.
