MiniDisc recorders may include optical (Toslink) and/or coaxial digital inputs. You'll need a special type of cable to connect to the digital outputs of your receiver, CD player, or DAT deck. Direct digital recording yields a crystal-clear copy of the original. Digital recording is also easy, since you don't have to set record levels.
