    Have now recieved the deck, easier than expected,replaced the long spring for the eject as somebody had put a silly thing there, hopefully seen in the gap in the pic,noticed a possible repair with what looks like superglue to the owh mount, the belt had been replaced with something a tad thick for my likeing so replaced that and the good news it all works and records and writes toc too so success, over pic of deck in deck inside pics thread

    this is gonna be a challenge, could have a bit of fun and frustration with this one, somebody has messed up replacing the eject belt and knackered the springs, really you can only knacker one, more info when i get it, comes with spare belts remote and owners manual, going by the pics, i know where the long spring comes from and i have one from a mdm 7 drive i broke for spares some time ago, as for the small one on the side, unless ive used it, thats the one that will make things interesting, on ebay compleated listings if anybody wants a look see !!
  5. Here is a pic of inside a je470 showing all the unpopulated i/o ports,also shown is the pc link connection for refrence, if you have a 480, from what i remember adding any extra i/o ports is a no go as there is nothing there, wonder if the 470 mainboard has similarities to the higher 770 model.
  6. true stephen, thing is the usb was/is convenient even though sonic stage was rather crap, still handy for titling discs though, otherwise i found that with sonic stage transfer to pc can only be done with the player the pc transferred to in the first place, now i wonder where that mz n1 portable is that i had, did loadsa discs with that before i got the 980, i have a feeling that it is with an old mate in luxembourg, drat !!
  7. nice expeimentation, the bummer is, that if sony added a usb system like on the 980 earlier then none of this would be needed,all good stuff all the same, no wonder 980's cost mega bucks,its all about that usb, dispite its much poorer internal build quality
  8. not that i know what you lot are on about,i will just add that the 470 has pc link,dont know about keyboard function though, just my 2p worth to confuse matters even further !
  9. you have a lot more portables than i have, i have a mz r909, bought in the boomtime, around 2007, mint came with all its kit and 5 xsiv discs, 4 unused £20 all in, and a mz-n1 also with all its kit same price area, its at a friends house, has been for a long time, you know the score, will never see it again !!!
  10. only have one pat tested the jb980, september 2007, if there are others i cant remember off hand
  11. tip of the iceberg kevin, even i dont have any pro rack mounted jobs. though i probably will be ahead of you with jb series decks apologies for thread hi jack
  12. how many decks have you got kevin !!!!

    just checked this one on iop read, its 50.1/49.1, so appears decent too. who would like to risk it for a biscuit on this one on the bay just now, it has c13. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Sony-Minidisc-Player-Recorder-MDS-JE480/114752586294?hash=item1ab7c98236:g:z70AAOSwM-VgaZTK
  14. so there you go "money no object", es decks will become exotic items for the rich and famous a bit like posh cassette and dat decks, and yes i agree that the 980 adds bells and whistles that the previous 3 dont have,i bought it in around 2007, it was around £100 with remote, it was the going rate at the time, i wanted it for net md which is as we all know, can be a pain, its still handy for naming tracks via pc easily,i dont bother with mdlp anymore although ive got quite a few discs recorded that way via net md from that 2007 time,over the last year i have bought 3 930's spares or repair, its
  15. i will never own a es deck, so i will leave those out of the equasion, so for this i will mention the qs decks mostly, the 980 for years i would have called it king, its all about that usb socket isent it, ive had one for about 15 years and only recently looked inside it and there is no comparison to say the 930 in build quality, inside its like a 480 in drag, the cost cutting is there for all to see, gone are the toroidal psu and quality board plus components etc, instead is a rather small board and standard iron core psu, so that dosent justify the crazy prices they fetch, so the previous 3
