Submission + - Sony to make its last MiniDisc system next month->

An anonymous reader writes: The BBC reports that Sony, the creators of the MiniDisc audio format, are to deliver their last MiniDisc stereo system in March.

Launched over 20 years ago in late 1992 as a would-be successor to the original audio cassette, MiniDisc outlasted Philips' rival Digital Compact Cassette format, but never enjoyed major success outside Japan.

Other manufacturers will continue making MiniDisc players, but this is a sign that- over ten years after the first iPod- the MiniDisc now belongs to a bygone era.
