I would like to get a Minidisc recorder to tape band rehearsals and gigs, but really don't know much about the tecnology or the process. Recording live music is all that I would use it for, and basically need a quality unit with a phantom power mic input and the "adjust levels on the fly" option...although a remote would be nice, as would an extended record mode. Of the models that Sharp is currently making, it looks like the MT877 would be the only one to fit the bill, but it seems to have more options than I need and might also be a bit pricey for my needs. Any thoughts here from those who are familiar with and use MD recorders??? Any recommendations on players based on my needs, what to stay away from, or are there other Sharp models currently in production that I'm not aware of?
