Sony MZ-N1

First generation netMD portable device launched by Sony. NetMD allows PC to MD download of audio files. Originally Open MG Jukebox was required to use netMD, but now this device is supported by PlatinumMD and web MD. Was announced alongside the MDS-NT1, LAM-Z1, and CMT-C7NT. All of which were netMD devices.

Shipped with the RM–MC12ELK remote. It is supposed to support full Kanji track and disc titles, but I have only been able to get Katakana to work properly.
