SONY NET MD WALKMAN MZ-S1 DRIVERS

And who knows, perhaps some day the system will be streamlined into a viable alternative to other digital audio formats. What further separates the MZ-S1 is its illogical name: Thanks to Scott Phelps for providing the model shown on this page. In fact, the hardware does more than its own share, and both Sony and Sharp have devised some pretty clever devices. Some of the last models, such as the D-SJ15 portable CD player, had even lost most of the yellow, all that remained was yellow trim on otherwise black casework. S2 retained the essential characteristics of Sports, in that the models were rugged and splash resistant. I think NetMD has been a bust.

Thanks to Scott Phelps for providing the model shown on this page.

The outer door opened twice, but playback wasn’t interrupted and the player survived unscathed. In general I would only recommend the MZ-S1 to folks for whom a rugged player is a necessity. And sony net md walkman mz-s1 knows, perhaps some day the system will be streamlined into a viable alternative to other digital audio formats.

Rather then having lots of walkmqn buttons the main controls were combined onto a small and cleverly designed joystick that could be operated with one thumb while the machine was being carried. All the S2 products were well made, well thought out pieces of work but the combination of high prices and the fickle nature of modern youth meant that the osny had a short life and found little in the sony net md walkman mz-s1 of commercial success which was a great shame.

Oddly though for a model intended to complement sony net md walkman mz-s1 lifestyles there was no provision for remote control, preventing the owner from tucking the machine safely away in a pocket or bag.

However, for now it is not a practical alternative to MP3. This time the signature mf was white with dark grey trim and orange accents and details. This is an important characteristic, as MD portables have thin skin for the most part.

This certainly looked fresh and modern but it was not as trend-setting mz-s the Sports series, whose yellow finish was widely imitated. For this toughness you sacrifice too many features, as well as a remote control, so if you’re not living an “extreme” lifestyle, then wa,kman clear of this one.

Beneath its well finished and partially die-cast outer, The MZ-S1 was fairly conventional by the standards of the day. It’s clunky, slow, overprotective of content to the point of infringing on users’ rightsand the software is an insatiable resource hog. Most of the problems come from NetMD suite, not the hardware. Some of the last models, such as the D-SJ15 portable CD player, had even lost most of the yellow, all that remained was yellow trim on otherwise black casework.

The only addition is a small corner extension that houses a USB port. I didn’t get it wet during the review, but I did drop it from four feet a few times for fun.

Firstly, it’s the only Sport model, which basically means that splashes and jostling won’t hurt it. Granted, it would have been almost impossible for it to live up to the pre-launch hype.

What further separates the MZ-S1 is its illogical name: S2 retained the essential characteristics of Sports, in that the models were rugged and splash resistant. Sony has gone hog wild and released a whole slew of portables on us.

I think NetMD has been waliman bust. Even by beloved Sharp is fragile as an sony net md walkman mz-s1. Founded in with the WM-F5the Sports range had been in decline for some years.

Another quirk is that Sony hasn’t standardized the NetMD name.
