  1. I use Windows XP on my Mac Pro OS X 10.10.2 using VirtualBox (free from Oracle at https://www.virtualbox.org) and it runs SS runs great. Most people have a copy of Windows XP in their home so its cheap to setup a virtual machine for using VirtualBox.

  3. I use my MZ-NHF800, Hi-MD unit, daily as my commuter unit for about ~100 minutes (M-Thur). At home, I do not use my Hi-MD unit at all. Being a Mac user at home, I stream all my music from iTunes to my stereo unit using my airport express, toslink. In the past, I have used my Hi-MD unit to record audio (second track) for home videos (and a friend’s wedding too). I later used GarageBand to mix the audio tracks, the audio quality from my Hi-MD is just amazing. It’s hard to beat the MZ-NHF800, uses a battery and has radio too. Reliability has been great too, no issues so far. I did replace the rem
  4. Hi Matt, 1. How old were you when you first 'bought into' the format? ~35 2. Do you still regularly use your very first player? Yes, its my main commuter unit. I use it for ~100 minutes every day. 3. Do you regularly 'use' your items, or are some purely of interest as a 'collector'? Use it, extra units are backup units. 4. Do you listen to 'new' music on your discs, or prefer to keep the format for music 'of the era'? I use it for both. I do transfer my new music from iTunes to SS, for transferring to my Hi-MD unit. 5. Do you own more items than you can 'pra
  5. Yes, they look great. I would buy some too and I am sure that others would too.
  6. According to my hearing which may not be perfect or trained for this technical comparison, I also find the two models the MZ-NHF800 (similar to MZ-NH700) and MZ-RH710 which I own to be very similar in sound quality at Hi-SP (256) using my Sennheiser HD 280 Pro. I also believe that 352kps sounds a bit better on my MZ-NHF800 than on the MZ-RH710. Since my MZ-NHF800 is my commuter unit it could be that my hearing is accustomed (bias) towards the analog amp of the MZ-NHF800 instead of the digital one on the MZ-RH710. This is just my observation.
  7. The durability of my NHF800 has been excellent. I have been using my unit since the fall of 2004 for about 8 to 10 hours weekly. This is the unit that use on my commute to work daily, Monday thru Thursday. I use the remote that came with the unit extensively and not so much the controls on the unit itself. A few years ago, it rain so much that the remote was soaked with water and required a WD-40 cleaning for it operate besides that minor issue the unit has performed excellent.
