Has anyone used / own this mp3 player, whats it like?
I like the fact you can use click disks - 400 MB of extra audio storage for 50!!
All the reviews i have read on this dap are good and i am considering buying it, does anyone have any opinions on it?

mp3 is the future of music, MiniDisk is dying.

i have one and it's great for music and data (the 40mb disks also work as storage and the hipzip as a usb drive) no doubt buy one!

>MiniDisk is dying.

People have been saying that since the early 90s.

The fact of the matter is minidisc is much better audio quality than mp3. It's a nice cross between CD functionality (and quality) and reusability (just like mp3 players).
If you don't care about the loss of audio quality than by all means go with the mp3 player (I do have one). But if you notice the loss in quality I suggest the minidisc, which I use much more often.
