I think that was coming out just as I had moved on. Just such a great format I loved how easy it was to edit discs (I had an IBM keyboard plugged into my deck) and I had the remote also. Anybody that was into cassette mix tapes you had to love MD it was everything that was great about cassette plus everything that was great about digital. Sony hit it out of the park with MD. it was huge in Japan I guess for a long time, it just never seemed to catch on that big in the west. Loved it.
