I was thinking about wanting the SONY MZ-R700 for Christmas, i'm sure you can find the features some place on the net. Any of u got this gadget. My audio card has an optical output thingy (or so im told) so i'll be able to record my mp3's to my mds (digitally of course) My friend has it and i'm getting the impression that it's pretty cool and without any big problems. I know that the MZ-R900 has a remote with display but i dont really feel i need that. Any of u tried recording mp3 over to the md and could give me any good tips? Dun wanna screw up the first time i try --Edit-- Found the details and features : G-Protection Jog Proof • MDLP • Line In Following with it : Cable for copying music (digitally) • Rechargable battery • "Remote" Antishock : 160 seconds Battery life time : Up to 53 hours Weight : 142 grams with batteries. And as i might add, the price seems reasonable.
