Sony has announced that the end is nigh for their MiniDisc format, with the last stereo system supporting the format leaving the production line in March 2013.

MiniDisc is a 20-year-old media format, essentially a small optical disc contained in a plastic case.

The original format could hold 80-minutes of audio, with a later update to Hi-MD able to store 45 hours of audio (a 1GB capacity).
