Sony MZ-N510


System Controller/ATRAC DSP IC: CXD2680GA (CXD2676)

Entry-level NetMD recorder.


No microphone input

Group and Bookmark track function (see Sony glossary).

Recording level change and character input while recording

Quick mode (!) according to Sonystyle Canada.

Non-LCD remote

“Quick mode” (shorter battery life: turns off the LCD, but leaves unit “on” for up to an hour with no user input – unit will respond almost immediately when a track is played or cued within that hour).

Line-level output can be enabled on the headphone jack (along with other features) through an EEPROM hack.
