  1. Change Language of Japanese MZ-RH1 Unit

    Do you listen your music with a good headphone ? http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/5-quality-headphones-cost-50/

    Hi mimarsinan, I don't know about the sound quality of this "Turner - DJ Fuzuli" set but when I listen to it on my own system with my PC as source, it sound good enough to me. But electronic music can be good even as 192kbps. The easiest test you can do is to record an original CD from your CD player : source with CD quality, and MD set to SP mode or, if your disc has been formatted in Hi-MD mode, MD set to Hi-SP). If you listen only music from your PC or your Mac, the test recording has to be done with a lossless quality file as the source (using a good player like jRiver Media Center - there is a free version -or foobar2000 or any player reading lossless audio files). Even the PC player can be set with different listening parameters meaning that the CD player test is more reliable. Hi-REs audio files can be record using an analog connection or an downsample to 24bit-48kHz DAC setting.

    Use this : toslink to digital, toslink, mini-jack, 3.5" etc https://www.amazon.com/KabelDirekt-TOSLINK-Optical-Digital-Audio/dp/B00GZQWLF0/ref=pd_sim_23_6?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00GZQWLF0&pd_rd_r=6CA6V2SWV353H9PPVJR6&pd_rd_w=OhcRl&pd_rd_wg=AXldx&psc=1&refRID=6CA6V2SWV353H9PPVJR6

    https://cdn.head-fi.org/a/2905221.jpg https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/61M7agKgoxL._SL1500_.jpg The cable inside the MD is called a SPDI/F Toslink mini-jack.or a Mini Digital Optical SPDIF https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JcQEd7ss6lQ Note that you can use such cables also to connect the MD to a PC or a Mac with an optical out for your recordings. The settings of the sound card must be set at 24bit-48kHz maximum. A player like Foobar200 with the plugin Post-track Silence, plus Sonic Stage for the editing (needing Net-MD connection) can be used for a real time recording (real SP mode). Stereo Flac files or even Hi-Res audio files are the best for the best audio recording quality.

    No Hi-MD with radio recording capatibility, only one with radio on the remote.
  8. Choice of MD microphones

    Radio or any other technical info : the browser will answer you ! I don't use a mike (no field recording). Maybe somebody else ?

    I don't know a lot about copyright and limitations when you transfer music to the disc or upload files with the help of the RH1. There are some topics about this in the forum.

    There are plenty of good news. All MD units have an optical "mini-jack toslink" in. The recording quality is so good (even considering a compression) that you can consider to buy a very good digital cable (jack 3.5" to mini-jack) like an Audioquest Forest. Same thing for the headphone. If you use it as a portable unit, buy also a carying pouch (with at least one hole to connect the headphone) to prevent scratches (a lever cigar boxe is even possible). And use it gently every time you open it to change the disc or use the buttons. Doing that you will be able to resell the unit in some years at the same price you bough it. About the recordings modes, there are different "schools" here about what is the best for you (not only for the quality but also for question of storage, time, full universality between different generation of all your units, etc). The best news is that it is still quite easy to find (cheap) standard MD discs (no need of only sealed ones) that can be formatted in Hi-MD mode (or not), 1 Gb Hi-MD are nethertheless quite rare and expensive nowadays. And finally you will use a vintage audio device that will last a loooong time with you (if you use it gently). Beside another less expensive portable unit and a (good) deck are warmly advise.

    Sorry Stephen, when Jim sent me back my RH1 units, I dressed the grey unit with a green panther sticker design (the orange marsupilami was far more beautiful). So the informations are not apparent, except if I put off the skin, a thing I don't want to do as the poor unit has many scratches. The text unit is in english though.
