Sony MZ-N505

Budget netMD recorder. Uses AA batteries, so an easy to use device. Shipped with a remote that lacked a display.

Highly recommended as a beginner device if you can find one cheap enough.

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.
