The size line shifts again as this Panasonic grabs the title for the worlds (current) smallest recordable MiniDisc player, snatching the glory from the Sony; and it's an commendable opponent. It's another good looker with its brushed aluminium skin; coming complete with all the features that you would expect including a snazzy side mounted jog dial, which has an integral push button for labelling and track selection. The MR100 has loads of new technological advances, incorporating the newly developed one beam optical pickup laser. It has a large clear LCD screen on the unit, plus a substantial backlit remote. Recording is made easy and it has a special 'one track record' function, which pauses the player after a CD track finishes. Panasonic has done it again with one nice new player.
