Features

G-Protection: G-Protection was developed to protect against sound skipping while jogging, providing a higher level of shock protection than traditional ESP. The G-Protection feature provides 15-times faster shock recovery compared to conventional shock protection systems, so it will easily outperform electronic shock protection (ESP) systems equipped with 40-second buffers. The memory buffer is refreshed so quickly, that it is virtually impossible to make an MD skip.

Recording Overview: The supplied USB interface provides all-digital transfer of MP3, WMA, and WAV audio files from your PC to MiniDisc at up to 32 times faster than real-time. The title/track information you create in the jukebox automatically will be transferred to the Net MD Recorder.

Note: This unit records via USB only, since there are no analog or optical digital inputs.

Long Play 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.

Note: Songs recorded (checked out) in LP2 or LP4 Stereo to an MD cannot be played back unless the MD player is compatible with MDLP.

Digital Sound Preset: You can adjust the treble and bass to suit your taste. The player can store two sets of treble and bass adjustments that can then be selected later during playback.

Automatic Volume Limiter System (AVLS): The AVLS function keeps down the maximum volume to protect your hearing.

Group Function: This function allows you to categorize consecutive tracks into a group for playback, recording, or editing. This is handy if you are recording multiple artists or CDs onto one MiniDisc.

"Easy Skip" Group/Folder Function: This function allows for easy navigation between multiple file folders transferred in a playlist.

Supplied Software

SonicStage: SonicStage is an integrated software application that lets you enjoy music. Not only can you play back songs from audio sources, such as audio CDs or MDs, you can also import songs to your computer's hard drive and organize them as audio files. Furthermore, the imported songs (audio files) can be transferred to portable devices, such as a Network Walkman or Net MD Walkman. You can also write songs to CD-R or CD-RW discs to create your own original audio CDs.

Music Drive: Music Drive is SonicStage's Music Database. Music Drive is used to integrate and manage all of the audio files on a computer. Audio files can be imported to the Music Drive from various sources by performing the following operations: recording songs from an audio CD, importing audio files stored on the computer, and downloading audio files from an EMD service on the Internet. Information such as artist name, song title or jacket image can be attached to the audio track stored in the Music Drive. You can manage songs (audio files) by this information and also categorize songs using the playlist feature. Additionally, you can find a specific song by using various search criteria.

Net MD Simple Burner: Net MD Simple Burner allows you to easily record audio CDs from your CD-ROM to the MD player, without the need of storing any information on your hard drive. It will also allow you to edit and perform playback functions of your MD player through your computer.

OpenMG: OpenMG is a copyright protection technology used when importing and managing audio content from music distribution services or audio CDs. By using OpenMG compliant applications such as SonicStage, audio content can be encrypted before being stored on the hard disk of a computer so that the audio file cannot be played back on any computer other than the one it was created on. OpenMG is useful in preventing unauthorized distribution of audio content via the Internet.

RealOne Player Compatible: RealOne is a free music management system that lets you download, create playlists and transfer music to your Net MD recorder. Sonic Stage is compatible with RealOne.
