Verdict
Aiwa AM-F70 £250 Oct 99 Solid all-rounder that doubles as a superb dictaphone. Not No.1 as regards MD portables though.
Denon DMD-1000 £300 Nov 99 Sound quality up with the rest, wears its years well. Beginning to look expensive.
Goodmans GMD 920 £160 Nov 99 Very good value; build quality a touch plastic-y but stylish with it. Sonically very worthy.
JVC XM-228 £230 Sep 99 Well-built recorder. Good but not exceptional as Minidisc improves generally.
Kenwood DMF 9020 £500 Aug 99 An excellent tool for home recording; combines convenience, superb sound and a fair price.
Panasonic SJMR200 £199 Oct 01 Great build and a wide range of facilities, but the sound is a little bland.
Panasonic SV-SD75 £300 Oct 01 MP3 & AAC player on a wristwatch. A glimpse of the future, brilliant but pricey.
Pioneer MJ-D508 £200 Nov 99 Sensible and well featured MD. Excellent transriber of digital, shows up on analogue a little.
Sharp MD-MT88H £150 Oct 01 Great sound, useful facilities and a modest price make it a winner.
Sharp 722 portable £230 Aug 99 Flash looks with solid build. First-class portable with domestic potential, but it isn't cheap.
Sony MDS-JA333ES £480 Jul 01 Fine all rounder, with a great sound, exquisite build and myriad facilities.
Sony MDS JA555ES £550 Jul 00  A dreamboat for MD fans, but not quite the best sound per pound at the price
Sony MDS-JB930 £300 Nov 99 UK Special Edition, so it sounds alright! Keyboard compatible with no difficulties in operation.
Sony MDS-JB940 £249 Jan 01 Superb value for money thanks to its heady combination of great sound, top feature count and impressive build. The best budget MiniDisc recorder around right now.
Sony MDS-JE770 £229 Jan 02 Geat value budget blockbuster from Sony, with all you could possibly want, except superb sound.
Sony MX-N1
portable
£240 Aug 02 Smart compact bit of kit, but just fails to excite when it comes to sonics.
Sony MZ-R55 £250 Jun 00 Stylish and small, yet feature packed. Highly recommended.
Sony MZ-R900 £229 Oct 01 A well balanced all rounder with lots of facitlites and good sound too.
Technics SJ-MD100 £230 Nov 99 Solid, obviously meant for serious use. Excellent editing features. Sound up with the rest.
