Sony DHC-MD333


$399.00 Released January, 2000

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Sound is clear and well defined. Enough power output for small to medium sized rooms. Shortwave and mediumwave versions.

The Cons:Remote control is awkwardly designed, layout is way too complex. Clock has no battery backup, system no good for wake-ups. Difficult to find mini-disc replacements, not a widely supported standard.

The Sony DHC-MD333 Executive Microsystem is a remote controlled bookshelf audio system released around the year 2000 that features a CD player and optional cassette player, as well as the now antiquated MiniDisc format which can be synced to record directly from radio or CD with track editing and on the fly track naming.
