.....................(ebay links etc below) - click SHOW MORE.
In this video you'll see the first machine and the last machine as well as some in-between. There's talk about MD-LP, Net-MD and HiMD. It's a personal retrospective of a format that was loved by many people around the world but one that is all too often is judged purely on it's lack of performance in the US market.

My earlier video about DAT (Digital Audio Tape)


IMPORTANT UPDATE: +++++++++++It is possible to get Sonic Stage running on Windows 10. +++++++++
However the software is no longer officially supported or updated by Sony.

More info was posted in early comments.

Q) Why don't you do a video about (Insert format here) [e.g. UMD]
A) I aim to make a video about... EVERRRRYYYYYYY (said in the manner of Gary Oldman in Leon) Format over time. If you see something appear in one of my videos that I haven't made a separate video about - you can safely assume that a video about this item is in the planning stages. The planning stages can take me years before the video gets made.
