The successor to the Sharp 701, the 722 is its over-designed (in my opinion) cousin. Smaller then its predecessor this recordable MiniDisc players most noticeable feature is the big jog dial that's situated on its face. The LCD backlit remote even has two small jog dials for track selection and volume. It's got loads of new technology inside like ATRAC compression and decompression on the same chip, and a 20bit ADC (analogue to digital converter) and DAC (digital to analogue converter). And for once it's available world wide, including the UK!
