  1. Change Language of Japanese MZ-RH1 Unit

    Well, the digital recording finally works, after multiple sets of intermediary cables! The issue was indeed the output KHz, I reduced it from 96 to 48 and it worked like a charm. The club mixer settings helped out with that. I also have various choices for digital signal output - -19dB, -15dB, -10dB, and -5dB. The default was -19, but it sounded too low, so I set it to -15 because there was audible distortion at -10. Is -15 a good bet then for the digital out dB setting?

    Hmm, do you think I can find brand new cassette walkmans on that site as well?

    Thanks for the links!!!

    Sweet, thank you!

    Hmm, do you have any online links to product listings, perhaps? I must admit I'm not excited about the idea of more Japanese language-only products though.

    Hmm, no new models of those items are available sadly, I checked both eBay and Amazon...

    Still, isn't my idea then viable to record on the actual unit with the radio itself, directly, through the line-in?

    Does anyone have a non-Japanese remote which explains what this means? I figured maybe it means Arena or something. I got new headphones today so I am eager to try them out again (Flares Pro) and check if they improve the bass. Is it possible to buy English language remotes for this device anywhere? I've finally found some English units on eBay, but they're quite pricey. Would have been great to just get the remotes in my language, since only they are in Japanese.

    I would be happy with that. Did you test the remotes, are you sure?

    So what do you think about the radio loopback idea for recording? Would the remote work? BTW I just discovered the "A" surround mode on my device. The remote text is in Japanese so I don't know what the "A" stands for, but my latest set sounds awesome with "A" surround: This recording was made in Hi-SP mode with the same device. I would have tried PCM, but it wouldn't fit the full two hour program.

    So for starters, how can I completely wipe a HiMD disc using the RH1 or its PC management software? Is this plain impossible? Is it also possible to format regular MD discs as HiMD's? Are there any ill effects in doing so?

    So I haven't been able to check this out yet - its an unpleasantly busy time of the year, the past few weeks have been especially delightful. But I have the following general feedback to share: 1) When I completely wipe a Hi-MD disc and then transfer PCM tracks from my PC, it seems a random error is introduced on virtually every transfer. Each time I listen to the transferred recording, it skips "here or there", once to twice per disc, at the same position, per transfer. I can then wipe the disc again and transfer again. This does *not* guarantee that the new version will be error-free. There seems to be a 50% chance there won't be any new issues. If there are new issues, they'll be at completely new positions. 2) I made a live recording using a mike (I wasn't the DJ that night). Now I cannot transfer it at all to my PC. In my 90 minute recording, the transfer progress jumps to 30% immediately, and then fails. However, I *can* listen to the recording on the player itself. It's PCM. I honestly thought some of what sfbp was reporting had to be hogwash, with respect to the errors the unit could raise, especially with PCM recording. Is it really true, is it so unreliable? Another pet project...I'm still trying to figure out how to record radio. If I get one of the MD models with the radio remote, then plug that remote into my current model, and then take the earbud "line out" found on the remote, split it using a line splitter, feed one of the split lines back into the MD through line-in, and the other to the headphones as per usual, can I then finally record radio on the MD? And I have been able to finally figure out how to reduce my DJM 900 SRT (its not NXS2, sorry) digital output to 48Khz, apparently the default was 96. So I should be able to wrap that test up soon as well. Looking forward to your feedback, folks!

    I really doubt the DJM 900 NXS2 sets any copy bits. All indicators point to a Khz mismatch in the mixer output thus far. Nice to know such nuances are not lost on the copper digital out cable! I'll double check that and let you know what I find. Thanks for the feedback!

    Perhaps the mixer output indeed, I will check that. If a solid red light is coming, that hopefully means the box isn't dead, right? Here's my live recording (albeit, analog): https://soundcloud.com/djfuzuli/bastion-dj-fuzuli

    I use the mixer and 3x Pioneer CDJ 900 NXS2's to make my sets (or perform live) and then the MiniDisc to record the sets (the track marking is very convenient).
