I was advised to get a DAT rather than a Minidisc, as the compression used in the Minidisc system may not preserve the digital/acoustic information needed for further analysis. If you need details of this I can get them from my colleague. I use a portable Sony DAT TCD-D7 and a Sony lapel mike, which is fine for adults (but not children!). The DAT has a digital output, although I don't use this when transferring to the Kay system, Sony has a connection kit which I have been told will work.
