    Go for the 520. The 510 has serious mechanical issues - believe me!

    Better still, seek out a machine that is Hi-MD capable. (Not sure if those others you mention fall into this category.) ATRAC is NOT a nice coding scheme, losing some 80% of the data compared to CD. You'll hear it.

    Yes... stay away from the 510. I would suggest getting one with a separate REC Level. My recommendation is a MDS-JB930. You can do your research here... http://www.minidisc.org
