Here is something you don't see everyday. A new home minidisc deck is available in the US from Sony! Crutchfield now has the MDS-JE480 for $150. The 'JE480 was released in Europe awhile ago, but it's finally available in the US.

Now it would be nice to see Sony release the 'JB980 in the US too. I probably shouldn't press my luck.
