Lissa was a range of HiFi components by Sony, based on the i.Link S200 interconnect standard and styled in a novel, minimalist design. It was introduced in 2001. It was not a commercial success and no other products were ever introduced in this series afterwards.

Although the receiver had some analogue inputs, the components required just a digital i.Link connection to hook up. The other components only featured a power cord and two i.Link ports on the rear panel.

The MiniDisc recorder/player & CD player implement the 1394TA specifications:

  • AV/C Disc Subunit General Specification
  • AV/C Disc Media Type Specification - MD audio
  • AV/C Disc Media Type Specification - CD-DA
  • AV/C Descriptor Mechanism Specification
  • AV/C Information Block Types Specification

These devices can be controlled by either the STR-LSA1 receiver, or through a computer (Windows or Mac) using standard AV/C commands. The MiniDisc deck appears to be the most complete implementation of the Disc Subunit specification in consumer equipment.

Products[edit]

Only three components and one set of speakers were ever introduced:

  • CDP-LSA1 – CD player
  • MDS-LSA1 – MiniDisc recorder
  • STR-LSA1 – Receiver
  • SS-LA500ED – Speakers
