MiniDisc World Titling Championship
From The Daily Yomiuri, Japan
November 8, 1998
Takeshi Watanabe became the first MiniDisc World Titling Champion here in
The tournament , with 350 competitors,was divided into two parts ; titling
with a MiniDisc system using a shuttle knob and also a portable of the
users choice. To make it fair all round all titling was done in Roman
Entrants had to title random albums that had been pre-selected to contain
the same number number of characters and songs.
Takeshi titled "Tubular Bells" by Mike Oldfield on his Kenwood system in
10.3 seconds and did "Queen's Greatest Hits" on his Sony R35 in 2 minute
Takeshi's prize was 1,000,000 JPY, a new Sony R55 portable recorder and the
full collection of Sony's pre-mastered library.
Sony, the sponsors of the tournament, hope that this year's event at Tokyo
Dome will become an annual event.
