Sony MDS-JE780

Sony netMD Minidisc deck. Supports ATRAC Type-S and group functions. Has a PS/2 connector on the front to connect a keyboard for proper track/title labeling.

There was some variation in digital inputs and a voltage switch depending upon region. Make sure to double check voltage before plugging it in, otherwise you could fry it. See image below:

Works without issue on modern Windows 10 PCs using web/platinum minidisc. You can also use it with the old SonicStage and OpenMG programs using the 64bit drivers.
