By the way... I can't stop singing the praises of MiniDiscs!! I wish more people would use them. They won't replace CD's, but they will replace cassettes.

As Bob mentioned, they are perfect for useing in the field to record workshops (and yes, some of you might even think about recording concerts. I wish Mini Disc's were around when the Dead had their taper section!!)

They are so easy to carry, I can usually put it in my jacket pocket. They can record 74 minutes, or if you have ability to record in mono you can double that. I can see it in use for recording classroom lectures. Perfect! The quality is near-CD. As I mentioned, I use them for interviews and they are far superior to the very expensive Marantz cassette recorders we used to use.

Sorry for the pitch! I work on a non-commercial station and every now and then I like to do a commercial!!! :)
