Does anyone still use mini disks? If so, you will be pleased to hear that Onkyo has not forgotten about you. They have embrace you with a big, warm hug along with the whole digital music public by featuring USB Direct Play in their latest FR-N9FX music system.
If you’re not familiar with this tech, it means you can play MP3s and WMAs directly from a USB stick or presumably an HDD packed full of billions of free downloads too. The added bonus is that it also works the other way around; i.e. you can rip CDs or MDs onto your USB device. It even records radio as well.
Prices and availability in this country are so far a mystery but you never know with Onkyo. They’re no strangers to the EU market.
