Any minidisc diehards?
« on: January 29, 2018, 01:59:44 PM »
On a distant shelf in a faraway galaxy was....a 74-minute minidisc with a ticket stub tucked in the case: David Bowie's Reality Tour, 2003. All my MD equipment is no more.

Can anyone upload it for me--or even record digitally in realtime from the headphone jack? You're welcome to keep a copy and keep the disc.  PM me.

I've still got a working portable, but not a unit with a digital output, which would be the best option.  Hopefully someone else here still has one and chimes in.   I can handle it for you if all else fails.

For future searchers....

I live in Canada and have a Sony working portable and a Sony 4Track (MDMX4MKII) that are both well maintained. Happy to do transfers for the TS crowd.

I've got a deck with digital output as well.
I'm going to hold onto this ...  I am a minidisc die hard.
I started out with minidisc regular, and went to WAV recording on minidisc, just before the standard died.

Loved these units for their portability, low noise preamps, and incredible battery life ...

Please DO NOT mail me with tech questions.  I will try to answer in the forums when I get a chance.  Thanks.

I bought one of the MZ-RH1 right before they just about disappeared. Only deck that can do a USB transfer of all minidiscs (legacy and netMD), and then do a direct conversion from ATRAC>WAV. Most of the decks with optical outs do a resample during the transfer if I recall.

That was a fun summer at work. Taking 6-7 masters into work, and then transferring onto my computer while working.
Audio: AT943 + SBD feeds

I also have a home deck with DIGI out if anyone needed a few MD's transferred. I am in the process of doing this for my own collection of old discs. That MZ-RH1 sounds nice, I liked those Sony MD portables. My first deck was a MZ-R55. Only thing I didn't like about it was the lack or L R level read out. Only ended up being an issue for one show thought.

I grabbed one off eBay a few years back, got all my masters transferred. I should offload it, one sold here last week for approx US$885! https://www.trademe.co.nz/a.aspx?id=1518098085

I used to have a home unit with the optical out (Sony JE510, IIRC) that I ran into a Yamaha sound card with an optical in. It was a nice setup, but the computer with that card is no more, and my MD unit no longer accepts MD's. If anyone wants it, they're welcome to it, for the cost of shipping (or pick it up if you're in the Cleveland area).

Pretty sure I sold you that MZ-RH1.  :facepalm:

I hope it still working well for you. I never would have used it again, most likely.

ha ha! Still works well. Hasn't gotten a lot of use since I did a mass transfer of all the minidisc masters, but occasionally somebody hits me up to do a clean transfer.
