@brunoph wow nice! i still have a partially working minidisc boombox but i've not tried recording anything new in over a decade. the old discs still play though, a remarkably underrated format :)

@brunoph Nice! I’m jealous. I had a md player/recorder back in college - loved that thing

@brunoph minidisc! i was never rich enough for that when they were alive, but always curious! :D

@robey Same. As a kid I went straight from a radio walkman to an MP3 player (at the time both very budget models).

Now I got that first box with everything inside from eBay for €70 including shipping.

The cool thing about all these old media stuff is that there isn’t too much demand unless you’re looking for the top of the line stuff (in the case of minidisc that’s NetMD and HiMD recorders) so you can sometimes get a boatload of stuff for little.
