  1. [FIND] Lever (Lock) Assy Sony MDS-JA333es

    PhilippeC - Thanks for the link - very interesting to see
  2. Using an MD deck as a DAC question

    IMHO - You are missing nothing (unless I misunderstood the question) - external DACs do not reprocess already processed material - they simply take the input stream of digits and convert it to analogue - this is how you have your JA22ES set up - and yes, it is a great DAC.

  10. Encoder rotary for JA555ES

    Kris/Philippe - I desperately need a Digital board for a JA333ES - do either of you know where I might get one? - Page 50 in service manual
  11. Don't know if this helps - found a copy in my archives.....
  12. Internal battery for MZ-R5ST deck

    The mainboard battery for the deck is a flat topped AA - at a squeeze you can push fit a standard rechargeable AA (NiCd or NiMH) - they will actually go in, just persevere - I have fitted to six of my units. The flat topped versions are available on ebay. The Lip8 carcass contains a standard 14650 battery - just open the carcass along the seam (there are a couple of self locking tabs) - carefully remove the old battery by pulling off the tags with pliers and insert the new one - no need to solder, the battery will make contact well enough to work properly - reassemble the carcass and that's it. Lip-8s are almost impossible to find.
