  1. @Azureal Great thank you! Message sent.
  2. Hey all, I'm looking for a simple portable MD player to use for road trips and the like. I also need to re-build my collection of blanks. For both blanks and player I'm not looking for rare, special or highly valuable. Just looking for simplicity. The MD portable doesn't even need to record. Just want something to play in the car.
  3. Hi Peter I'm interested in the $5 MD player. It's ok if it doesn't record but does it play back fine?

  4. I've been slimming down my vinyl collection to save $$. But before I sold them I recorded them to MD so I can still have a version with that vinyl sound. Anyone else have vinyl recordings on MD and want to trade? I have a few Led Zeppelin albums and some other things. I'm mostly looking for rock right now but am open to other things.
  5. I have some Led Zep live recordings. Though they are in circulation. Are you only looking for uncirculated original recordings?
  6. How cool! That's exactly what I was hoping for. I'll get in touch with them thanks. And Philipe if you can 3D print things, I would totally buy 3D printed PRMD cases from you! The other thing I might try is 200ft reel to reel boxes with a foam holding the disc in place.
  7. Thanks! I actually have a labeling system. What I'm asking is cooler cases. I want the labels to be bigger. I want the physical packaging to be bigger. I like the PRMD cases but they are hard to come by and pricey. So I was wondering if anyone has done anything interesting like modding a CD jewel case or something.
  8. I've been selling off my vinyl after recording them to conventional MD. I know the quality isn't equal but I wanted to keep a physical copy of the vinyl in some form. Anyway, I want to make cover art for them. But more than that I want a good sized presentation for the discs. I have those MD flip cases that are like mini jewel cases but I'd love to store them in something a little bigger. I was thinking of modding a normal MD case into a CD case so the cover art is a bit bigger but was wondering if anyone here has any creative solutions that they use? PRMD cases would be so cool but they are hard to come by and I'd never be able to justify the cost since we're talking about many records being recorded.
  9. 1. How old were you when you first 'bought into' the format? 11 2. Do you still regularly use your very first player? I still have it and when I use MD, yes! 3. Do you regularly 'use' your items, or are some purely of interest as a 'collector'? I don't collect anymore. 4. Do you listen to 'new' music on your discs, or prefer to keep the format for music 'of the era'? I have an iPod for music and podcasts now, sorry:-( But I'm thinking of using my MD for audiobooks and radio shows. Most of these kinds of tracks are mono so if I record them that way, I can fit a lot of my MD. Works better than having two iPods and is cheaper than using some kind of streaming subscription service. 5. Do you own more items than you can 'practically use'? Not any more! 6. Did you 'go away' from MiniDisc', only to return to it at a later date? I go back and forth. Yeah. I only use it when I can justify it. 7. Do you associate use of your player with 'fond memories', or is it a purely 'practical' consideration? Both
  10. Thanks for that. The volume wasn't the issue though. There were artifacts.
  11. I will probably still do that for my fav recordings but for having something to workout with or to download my podcasts, that isn't practical. I was hoping that the Hi-MD would combine my specialty dubbing audio world with my periodical podcast and audiobook world.
  12. That's sort of subjective. Digital out would give you the best sound. So a deck with optical out to a nice receiver with nice speakers will give you a better experience than an analog headphone jack. Technically if both the deck and the portable are Type-R the sound should be identical. The change in quality happens at the output stage.
  13. I might be wrong but I think I remember someone here mentioning that the pre-recorded albums are higher quality due to how they are manufactured.
  14. Perfect! Just snatched them up. Thanks for the link.
  15. I'm selling the pre-recorded cases. Those are taller. The PRMD ones are square.
