Sony’s new MZ-RH1 MiniDisc Walkman will feature, for the first time, Mac support, the company acknowledged Thursday. Sony has unveiled the MZ-RH1, a portable player/recorder that Sony is positioning as a mobile recording studio.
The MZ-RH1 supports Hi-MD, a high-capacity version of the MiniDisc format that enables you to store up to 1GB of data, or about 94 minutes of PCM audio or 45 hours of digital music. Audio formats supported by the new device include LinearPCM, several variants on Sony’s ATRAC codec and MP3. It connects to a Mac or PC using USB 2.0. The tiny recorder measures 3.45 x 3.45 x 0.68 inches and weighs 3.74 ounces. It features an Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) screen, as well. It will be available in black and silver finishes.
