  3. MiniDisc Addiction. Do you have one?

    As does mono
  4. MiniDisc Addiction. Do you have one?

    Yes, good philosophy. I think if get a similar one : nowadays you can buy (for a lot of money) Hi-Res players, some even high-end. But is this necessary to have the best sound ever when you travel or when you are outside ? When you know that all those players will get problems after 3-5 years (maybe less) and that the so-called high-end earphones & headphones all get their own problems too, I think that I prefer to listen to music with a MD player which has cost me peanuts and above all with MD discs that I can touch. The only problem is that you cannot bring a wide choice of music with you. LP2 give you more music ;>)
  5. MiniDisc Addiction. Do you have one?

    HI everybody, tell me KJ_Palmer, why do you have choosen LP2 instead of SP ? I have in mind to record >> 500 MD (from Hi-Res music) and for sure LP2 is the easiest (fastest) solution : SACD/SDS files ---> Flac lossless 24bit/48kHz (not 44,1kHz) ----> WMA lossless 24bit/48kHz (because FLAC is not recognized by SS) ---> Net-MD transfer I don't know yet if SS accept to recognize 24bit/48kHz files
  6. MiniDisc Addiction. Do you have one?

    Well, just to chime in. I've got three MD decks in semi-regular use (JE480, MXD-D40, Onkyo MD-105 Hi-MD deck), NH900 gets an occasional spin (though my little Sansa Clip zip is my portable of choice). Have several Sony portable MD recorders and decks "in storage". My MZ-B10 is in daily use at home. All my new music still gets added to the MD collection: ~250 LP2 discs/~40 Hi-MD discs. So yes, I guess I'm still an MD addict.

  8. MiniDisc Addiction. Do you have one?

    This thread has been going on for a dozen years! I currently have 9 decks, with most of them in some kind of active use. An MXD-D400 is in a box and there were prior decks I no longer have—perhaps another six? Although I'm not actually planning on acquiring any more...never say never. Have a few portables, too...rarely used. Head units in two cars. On and on it goes :-)

    Thanks for the details, PhillipeC...a delight to a quasi-geek such as I. Best of luck with the project! :-)

    Thanks for posting that. Don’t think I’ve come across that site before. Will have a good nose around it when I have an hour or so to kill.
  11. Sony ( atrac) Hard disc deck players

    Correction : I delete the major part of my non Hi-Res collection, so now I have around 7000 HI-Res albums in 9,7 Tb (only Classical, Jazz & Funk). 13 Tb is my ultimate objective (music), as I have in Mind to download also the Rock music Hi-Res section. SSD 110Gb internal, 4 x 3 Tb external, 1 x 4 Tb external. Then I will select 600-700 albums and begin a long process of recording them on MDs ! I just complete my MD blanks collection with an order of 500 of them to sescoscuba (Sergio from "crazy for minidisc" web site).

    13TB 13???I guess 5k # hi-res will do that! I have the majority of stuff in ALAC, so I'm saving much space, albeit not as much as with MD. Oddly, I think my JA20ES sounds better than the ALAC files, many of which came from CD. Doesn't really make sense (I am using a decent DAC with the ALAC), but so say my ears. I expect that 2 TB will be enough for me, so I put a 2TB SSD in my MBP Are your 13 TB external?
  13. Sony ( atrac) Hard disc deck players

    I have almost 13 Tb and I am already in a "worried about space" mode : this is because I downloaded more than 5000 Hi-Res audio albums (Flac 24bit/96k&192kHz, DSD, SACD, DVDA, TR24*) from rutracker.org (from now, only classical and jazz...). Could be more simple if I have downloaded only Flac 16bit/44.1kHz files or MP3s but with an average size of 1 Gb - 1.5 Gb per Hi-Res album. I use jRiver Media Center (licenced) which support in frequencies Hi-Res files. In Vietnam, there is no problem with ©. Countraya !

    That's exactly what I have done, using iTunes. Easier to backup. And you don't have to hack the hard drive—upgrading is straightforward. Further, even 1TB would put me in "worried about space" mode. Still, the NAC-HD1 is an attractive and standalone device....not that I am getting one, ever.
  16. Sony ( atrac) Hard disc deck players

    Not slim ;>) , but you have this : http://minidisc.org/part_Sony_PCV-MX3GK.html and nowadays : https://www.sony.com/electronics/audio-components/hap-z1es
  17. Sony ( atrac) Hard disc deck players

    NAC-HD1 - thats not it. The one I remember was quite slim and now quite ancient was an atrac system ( only) no cd I think was a net md device not sure
  18. Sony ( atrac) Hard disc deck players

    Just add a PC in your audio system, you will get the same functionnalities and more, specially if you add a very good external DAC.

    NAC-HD1 There's a guy on here who was adding more powerful disks to the original 250G, too.
  21. Sony ( atrac) Hard disc deck players

    can any one remember the full name of the 2 sony ( atrac) hard disc playback decks? I think they started with HD or some thing and would like to track one down some time or other on a totally unrelated matter I came across this site that may interest some here https://sites.google.com/site/crazyforminidisc/
  22. Help Needed: Music Recorded to Minidisc (Will Pay)

    Looks like it's a promotional item for one of the kickstarter packages for the OP's video game. The lower value packages include the soundtrack as MP3/AAC/FLAC but the MD is a bit of memorabilia for one of the more expensive packages. Might attract someone who still uses MiniDiscs or maybe just someone who likes collecting rare videogame stuff? Are you intending to do any packaging/labelling for the MiniDiscs MaxKriegerVG?
  23. Help Needed: Music Recorded to Minidisc (Will Pay)

    or just loading the music on line ?
  24. Help Needed: Music Recorded to Minidisc (Will Pay)

    I dont understand your logic - you admit that minidisc is dead & no one has them, yet want to use it as a publicity giveaway - will your prospective clients be able to play them? I would have thought that cds or usb pendrives would be better?
  25. Help Needed: Music Recorded to Minidisc (Will Pay)

    I'm in the US and can record to MD from CD and some other sources. How much material will you have? You can PM me.
  26. Help Needed: Music Recorded to Minidisc (Will Pay)

    Recording units? Sorry :\ I'm not incredibly knowledgeable about the hardware yet, and my preliminary research indicates I would be paying $100+ (including shipping) for a recorder I would only likely be using once, so I figured it would make more sense to reach out to a place like this. If you need further proof that this is a legitimate venture, here's a link to the Kickstarter that this will serve as a promotional item for. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1113141213/crossniq
  27. Help Needed: Music Recorded to Minidisc (Will Pay)

    Sorry you're not making sense. This is beginning to look like some sort of phishing expedition, pardon my French. MD units are cheap.
