Sony MZ-RH910 & MZ-M10

The MZ-RH910 is a Hi-MD Walkman offered in two colors; black and silver. Both of these models feature white accents on the edge and battery door, as well as white transport buttons and jog wheel.

Its sister model, the MZ-M10, was sold as a field recorder (packaged with Sony's ECM-DS70P stereo microphone) and boasting Macintosh support for Linear PCM uploading. The MZ-M10 is sold in black only, and features black transport buttons and jog wheel, and a silver accent on the edge and battery door.

The two models are otherwise largely identical other than their external appearance and included items, they all share a relatively large, non-backlit LCD display, a chunky but reasonable form factor, and support for running off external AA battery power (with the included EBP-RH10 battery case).

Both were only released in the west, with Japan only receiving the almost identically shaped, but OLED-toting and dockable MZ-RH10 & MZ-M100 instead.

User Notes

Neither player can record directly to standard MiniDisc blanks, except in Hi-MD formats, without the aid of a computer.
