Web developer and Studio Lead at Deloitte Digital in Düsseldorf, Germany.
Note to self: don't buy second hand Maxell Twinkle #minidisc 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 #Minidisc. And it works completely _offline_ too.
A rare find on Ebay Germany: a new sealed original packaging Sony MZ R-500 MiniDisc player! The auction ends in less than 2 hours and current bid stands at €95.
Found this crazy nutty Austrian (German) song at the end of this fun MiniDisc. Wow.
I'm enjoying listening to music on my re-discovered #MiniDisc 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.
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!!
