Pioneer's Mini-system With Built-in CD Recorder
Pioneer Corp. at the end of November will launch a mini-system it claims is the industry's first single-body mini-system with a CD recorder built in. Model X-MR7, at 112,000 yen or $1,065, also features a three-disc CD changer, two-way book-shelf speakers and Pioneer's Legato-Link Conversion processor. A built-in sampling rate converter allows direct recording from digital sources sampled at different frequencies, automatically converting signals into sound data at the 44.1KHz sampling frequency standard for CDs.
