Minidisc Recorder/Player. Advice?
Hey guys. (Looks like I start most of my posts like this. Oh well.) Anyways, I am wanting to find a good minidisc player/recorder. Looking at stuff on the web, information is all, well, weird. I am seeing that most are taking out the standard line in jack. I need to find one that has both that and optical in AND out. I have been looking at one of the recent units by sharp on minidisco.com, but because it is an import it is pretty busy. But it has a preamp for the mic in. Sorry for all the random questions/information in this post, but what I am trying to find are some more clear answers on what would work well. I want to record both ambient sounds with it (using a mic which I will research later) but to also record from sound boards when I play places and stuff. It goes without saying that I would like it to have at least decent battery life. If the iPod had line in capabilities, I would simply go with that. But seeing as it does not, I think a minidisc player/recorder would be the best shot. (Espcially considering that I don't have a ton of money.) So any advice/reviews/sites would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
