quality.
MDS-E10
MiniDisc Recorder
Wide Bit Stream technology for 20 -bit precision
Handling signals during digital processing at a resolution of 20 bits brings a dramatic
improvement in the accuracy with which ultra low-level signals are processed.
This brings the benefit of higher recording quality, with a wider dynamic range.
Flexible input /output interfacing
Both coaxial and optical connectors are provided for the IEC 60958 type II digital inputs and
outputs. Unbalanced phono connections are included for analog input and output signals.
Rec level adjustment
Record level adjustable on both digital and analog inputs.
Analog : Knob on rear panel / Set-up menu in digital domain, adjustable L /R balance
Digital : Set-up menu in digital domain
LP stereo recording mode
Incorporating the MDLP2/4* standard, the MDS-E10 can record and playback in stereo for up
to 320 minutes on an 80-minute disc. This is a very useful feature for recording extended
meetings or conference proceedings, and for playback in PA applications.
10-point Multi Access function (Hot Start )
The first few seconds of up to 10 tracks are held in memory to provide an instant, hot start,
from any of these tracks.
Vari-speed function
Provides variable-speed playback over a range of ±12.5%, in 0.5% steps.
When playing back an MDLP2/4 recording, the Vari-speed range is +0 to -12.5%,
in 0.5% steps.
Operation using a PC keyboard.
An optional PC-compatible keyboard with a PS/2® interface can be connected for track
naming, and to provide the same functions as the wired/IR remote commander.
Auto Track Marking
When a single, long duration track is recorded, these features allow the track to be divided into
segments of identical duration using Auto Track marking. Segment duration can be set to be
between 1 and 10 minutes.
SF Edit
This feature enables recorded sound levels to be adjusted by rewriting tracks with a revised
sound level. Fade In and Fade Out can also be added to recorded tracks. (SF Edit is not
available in MDLP2/4 mode.)
RAM Edit
The TOC of a disc, even a protected master disc, can be copied to RAM and edited.
*MDLP2/4: MDLP provides two modes
(MDLP2, MDLP4), 2x and 4x recording time.
This recording format adopts ATRAC3 Technology.

The Sony MDS-E10 is a rack-mountable MiniDisc Recorder that has the flexibility for use
in a broad range of environments. It features Vari-speed playback, digital and analog I/O,
and includes a Track Multi Access function. In MDLP mode, using compression technology
from the ATRAC3 format provides greatly extended recording times on a standard
MiniDisc. Just 1U high, the MDS-E10 combines all these features with easy operation,
a dual advantage that makes it the natural choice in many audio recording applications.
