Note to self: don't buy second hand Maxell Twinkle s. These are not made to withstand the test of time with a flimsy port cover and are made of very brittle plastic.

MiniDiscs that I haven't had issues with yet: Sony Neige, Emtec Maxima, Dark Blueish and Red Sony ones (I call these the BladeRunner themed ones)

So effective to be able to listen to and record my favorite music using . And it works completely _offline_ too.

Süpersong: Im Nin’alu by Ofra Haza

Found this song by Ofra Haza on a recently obtained second hand MiniDisc as radio recording and got it stuck on repeat! Powerful stuff.

Enjoying recording my music to and listening to the music on my Sony MZ-R500 from 2001. The original iPod was released in 2003. Who is still listening to music on their first iPod devices today?

I'm enjoying listening to music on my re-discovered players. Pop in the disc, press play and listen to about 150 minutes of your own music in clear digital quality.

And it all works offline and no need for recurring subscriptions and disappearing tracks, when the streaming site decides to no renew their licenses.

Tomorrows World 1992 - Philips DCC V Sony MiniDisc - YouTube

Love this comment by MGA X from 3 years ago:

> DCC wasn't the winner. Minidisc was for sure. Minidisc ended in 2013, 21 years after release. That's a long time for a digital format. DCC ended 4 years after it's release. I use MD now for recording and playing my vinyl records! Perfect for in home, combined with a good stereo! And it's good to have something different then your phone in home, for playing music! It's very relaxing offline music! Life can be so boring, doing everything on my phone!!
