    I don't remember the model offhand, but it cost about $140 at Christmas there...

    But I love it - very portable, very reliable, very good sound/usage of it. I'm not a fan of the Sony software, but I can live with it. I get a couple of hours of music to each minidisk, and it's fairly fast to build a new one.

    I'm a fan.

    I have the Sony MZ-N505 and like it a lot. I only use it for duping CDs and find there to be no audible drop in sound quality through headphones when using the LP2 compression scheme. A single AA battery seems to truly power the player for 50hrs.

    thanks for the replies.

    anyone know what ATRAC will do to, say , a variable bit rate mp3? does it "dumb" it down? or will it stay variable?

    I also own the 505 and I am really quite impressed by the sound quality of the LP2 compression. Sorry I can't answer the question about MP3s, as I don't care for them and only use the unit to record CDs...
