Is a rather modern device, has relatively long battery life (~36 hours) and is quite thin. It has MDLP support and came with a dock and backlit remote. It even has a small window in the front where you can see the disc inside of the player. Has a few audio settings over the previous MZ-E707 (digital amp, 6 band equalizer, and virtual effects). Does not seem to have any disc memory.

Has no charging connector on the device, the dock or an external charger must be used to charge the battery.

To Disable Pause Beeping:

  1. Press and hold DISPLAY on the remote for two seconds.
  2. Move the jog lever until OPTIONS is highlighted, then press the jog lever to select it.
  3. Move the jog lever until BEEP is highlighted, then press the jog lever to select it.
  4. Move the jog lever until BEEP OFF is highlighted, then press the jog lever to select it.

Be aware that several users have reported “crackling” or “crunchy” audio output on this device - more information on this would be appreciated, and if it's a potentiometer or amplifier issue.
