I see a lot of nice CD/MD decks in the Japan market. Does anyone have experience with MD recording( home units ) and HU w/MD ?

The newer ones are not bad at all -- certainly better than your average MP3 -- although you can do MP3s on them. MD is huge in ASIA and decent in Europe -- we darned North Americans "buy" disks because they are cheaper here ($12-15 cdn for a new disk in BC ).

If you think about it... MD was ahead of it's time -- it would be the perfect medium now, but you can not find many good car decks now.

MD home units are cool. There are some sony ones that will allow you to hook up a keyboard to add track text - like track title and singer. The quality of the recordings are quite good as well.

As for headunits, I think Nakamichi makes the nicest current ones (24bit DAC!). I use an old school Sony MDX-65 MD changer. Nice unit but the main reason why I bought it is for it's optical output.
