Space-saving MDLP recording mode increases compression so you can fit 2-1/2 to 5 hours of music on a single 80-minute MD. (MDLP makes MiniDisc an especially affordable way for 'Net audio fans to record downloaded MP3s and WMAs!) Time-shift mode can capture 6 seconds of audio from your source before you hit the Record button. Record level control allows you to optimize the volume for recording. And with Scale Factor Edit, you can even adjust the volumes of tracks after recording them!

Already have a portable MD player? A home deck like the 'JE480 makes it easy to listen to your MDs at home, through your stereo or A/V system.

Product Research

Features

Hybrid Pulse D/A Converter: This design places the converter and digital filter on the same IC to reduce signal leads and minimize interference.

Recording Level: The recording level can be set for both digital and analog recording. Additionally, you can change the volume of the recorded tracks using S.F. (Scale Factor) Edit, which records the original track over at a new recording level.

Smart Space: If the Smart Space function is on and there is no sound input for 3 seconds or more (but less than 30 seconds) while recording, the unit replaces this silence with a blank space of about 3 seconds and continues recording. You can turn this feature on and off.

Auto Cut: When the Smart Space function is on and there is no sound input for 30 seconds or more, the unit replaces this silence with a blank space of about 3 seconds and enters recording pause.

Time Machine Recording: The last 6 seconds of data is stored in a buffer so you can start recording 6 seconds before you actually engage the record function.

Undo: This function will cancel the last edit and restore the data on the MD.

A-B Erase Function: This function lets you easily specify a portion within a track and erase that portion.

Music Synchro-Recording: The Music Synchro-Recording function allows you to synchro-record with any audio equipment connected to the external inputs.

Recording: Recording can be done in both stereo and mono. In mono mode recording, time is doubled.

MDLP Recording: In addition to normal stereo recording, this unit has two long time recording modes; LP2 and LP4. When recording in LP2 Stereo mode, you can record two times the normal recording time. When recording in LP4 Stereo mode, you can record four times the normal recording time.

Sampling Rate Converter: The sampling rate converter allows you to convert 32kHz and 48kHz to the 44.1 kHz sampling rate of MD, so you can record from DBS with digital out or DAT/DCC.

Serial Copy Management System: SCMS does not allow you to make a copy of a digital copy. Normally, this will not be a problem, but note that it will keep you from making a MiniDisc copy of a CD-R made on a consumer audio CD-R recorder when using the unit's CD player.

Sleep Timer: The sleep timer switches the system off after a specified amount of time. The sleep timer is fixed at 60 minutes.
