Mono and LP2 are completely different. Mono continues to use 292kbps, but doubles capacity by only recording one channel. LP2 doubles capacity by recording in stereo at 132kbps (not 146kbps - some dummy data is needed to stay compatible with SP players). The MZ-R30 used here is very old and is not capable of LP2, though can do mono.
