Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

I am planning to buy a 2nd hand Sony HCD WZ5 music system. The volume output sounds in good condition and the overall quality is fine. It has a MD Video feature. I would like to be able to use it with my DVD player for it's sound output. Is that possible?

Why not? Standard a/v devices without secret proprietary connectors always work with like products.

To a point. It only accepts analog stereo input and creates digital optical audio and stereo analog audio outputs.

Don't take that MD(Video) label literally. It's a standard analog stereo audio (ONLY) RCA output pair. The label is meaningless. It should say AUX for all it does.

Sony hcd vx55


Hello. I downloaded the manual for the Sony system with the model number MHC-VX55. It seems that the part you are asking about is not a speaker system, but a preamplifie/power amplifier with integrated inputs from CD/Video, tape and tuner. The speakers that connect to the HCD-VX55 are a three way passive design with a nominal impedance of 6 ohms and model number SS-VX55. To answer your question I will assume that you meant you would like to connect the MHC-VX55 system to your computer for playing back audio tracks from your computer. Yes, you can do this. Your Sony system is equipped with an input labelled MD/Video (audio) With a sensitivity of 450 mV, this will (not ideally) the output from your computer headphone jack (if a laptop) or, even better you may have a desktop with an audio output at line level. You will need a simple audio connector with a 3.5 mm stereo plug on each end (very common and readily available for a few dollars. Be careful when setting up that you have your source turned down low and the input on your Sony machine about half way. You will find the sweet settings so that you get good sound without distortion. If you get distortion your source level is too high. Hope this helps. Cheers, Don.

HI, got tons of MDs with music I want to transfer to PC/CD/DVD. What's the best/cheapest/easiest - preferably not real-time transfer, like cassette, tedious. MD is digital, so why is it proving so damn...


Your problem is that MiniDisc is only a one-way street. Music can be copied from another device or (with a Net MiniDisc) digitally transferred from a host pc onto the MD unit, but not the other way around. Confusion arises because in older versions of Sony SonicStage, music could be checked in and out of the device. When checking out, a copy was made onto MD along with a digital rights licence. The original stayed on the host pc and could only be checked out on three additional devices at any one time. When checking music back in, the device simply erased the digital copy on the MD and transferred the licence data back into the host pc, so that one of the four possible copies was restored and made available for further check-outs. Later SonicStage software abandoned this clumsy "check-in, check-out" process but tracks downloaded onto an MD under the old process could not even be erased from an MD until checked back in again.

There is no hack or modification for this; the hardware and firmware simply is not provided in the MiniDisc system design to allow it.

A later and brief-lived development of the system was the Hi MiniDisc (Hi-MD). This does allow the user to upload material recorded onto the device to a host pc, but still does not allow you to upload material from pre-recorded sources or from your old collection. This is because uploads are possible only when using a dedicated 1GB Hi-MD, when the system uses older legacy MD's it uses different processing circuitry with all the old limitations.

Your only option is analogue transfer in real time. You can improve the quality if you are able to use the optical transfer provided on some models, you'll also find that some models allow you to bypass the output volume circuitry on the headphone jack by setting it to line output. But there is no way to speed up the transfers, sorry.

I hope that you have found my posting to be of use, you may also wish to search my other MiniDisc answers for additional information which you might find to be of further assistance to you. All that I ask in return is that you take a moment to rate my answer.

Car amplifire when conected to nokia mobile music player and when sound level increases of the mobile device the output sound cuts and plys also plys very low sound


Mobile r not good for playing music in a heavy system because Mobile has not a good sound quality as iPOD and others players have, also all mobile has not a capacity to play with amplifier, and the sound output of your mobile is low there fore u r getting low sound. If your amplifier has its own volume control then u can increase it from there. It is best to use iPOD. Thanks

I recorded analog music on md.now how can i transfer analog music to pc and chanege it to digital music on memory of pc.


Your analogue music will have been recorded digitally by your machine.

Digital transfers are only possible from the host pc/Mac to the player and not the other way around.

But you can transfer the audio signal by connecting the headphone output to the Mac audio input; look into the Minidisc player menu and you can set the headphone socket to "line" which bypasses the volume control circuits for better quality, your computer will then re-convert the analogue input into a digital signal with a small loss of quality.

Transfer Mini disk music to a PC


You cannot do this.

All minidisc player/recorders (with the partial exception of the later and far rarer Hi-MD players) can only download material from the host computer. They are physically incapable at the basic hardware level of uploading material to the host computer even if it's material which you own the copyright for. As a result, there's not even a hack for it as the wiring just isn't there to do it.

The only way to transfer from the minidisc player to the host computer is by connecting a lead to the audio output socket (headphone socket) and to the audio input socket (microphone) on the host computer. There is some quality lost but if the computer has a good audio card and matching software the losses are minimal. You can improve the transfer quality by going into the menu of the MZ-N510 and setting the output socket to "line". This bypasses the volume controls completely giving a purer signal path.

How do I transfer music from Sony MZ N710 MD to my mac?


You can't. it's an anti piracy measure built in at the hardware level.

Digital transfers are only possible from the host pc/Mac to the player and not the other way around. but you can transfer the audio signal by connecting the headphone output to the Mac audio input; look into the Minidisc player menu and you can set the headphone socket to "line" which bypasses the volume control circuits for better quality.

WHEN I ON MY HI FI SYSTEM THERE IS NO SOUND COMING OUT OF THE SPRAKERS, AND WHEN I INCRESE THE THE VOLUME TO 16 OR ABOVE THE HIFI SYSTEM AUTIMATICALLY TURNS OFF. TO RE START THE SYSTEM YOU HAVE TO TURN IT...


There is a problem with the output section. When you turn up the volume, the protection circuit kicks in and shuts down the system. This unit requires service. Expect a parts cost of about $10-$30. Add in the local labor rate for the total repair cost.

Transferung music from MD to CD


1.hi there...roger andre speaking.it may be a long shot. if you can obtain some music software ie pro audio logic,and if you have the time and patience,you will be able to play the tracks from your headphone/lineout socket and into the software as a high quality sample and add markers and even up the quality somewhat. 2.an even easier way would be to get your self a GOOD mp3 player,meaning it has a line in socket for analogue to digital mp3 conversion.then all you have to do is obtain a mini jack to mini jack conector(headphone size) and go from the minidisk output,to the mp3 players line in and record.hey presto your mini disk tracks will now be stored as mp3 files ready to be read by almost any computer...i m sure you know the rest...hope this is of some use,good luck roger

Hi MD recording


check out your sharing options on windows media player, DRM can watermark the tracks and make them unusable by other users, or even yourself.
Default is with copy protection, lookmin tools>options>rip music. Almost all audio programs have some version of this available, and only one fair use copy can be made.
