  1. Yeah, it's missing the screw hole for support but do have two additional metal pins instead which should work as support I hope. Thanks, /Per
  2. Thinking of adding a DLT-1150 (found in a bad working optical switch) to my JE470 - that should work since it handles 3-5VCC
  3. A bit late but better than never I guess, I prefer the sound of the NH700 even if the RH1 is nice. Could be due to the NH700 using a analogue HP-amp instead of the HD digital amp in the RH1 and also the NH900 which I don't have anymore.. /Per
  4. My recently acquired MZ-R90 is losing most of the settings when turned off like and realized it contains a backup battery (BAT1) - does anyone know if this by any chance is the ML614? or something else? /Per
  5. Unfortunately I couldn't do the rebuild in a LIP-4WM case since the dedicated LIP-4WM I acquired was in perfect condition (to my surprise actually) Not that common these days to find a working original battery. I'm keeping it at 40-60% and hope it lasts forever :P /Per
  6. Having a few spares is one thing, to decide which to use is another - needs to find a cheap 480 as spare for the 980 mech - in case it breaks - not sure if that qualifies as addiction or just being cautious
  7. Hello, (Possibly a bit late) but I do have one. Where are you located? /Per in Sweden
  8. I kind of like the idea of all music in my pocket but still recording lots of MDs - lately I've been (hoarding?) Network flash based Walkmans with true Atrac support to extend the heritage of MD onto newer platforms (read less space consuming) /Per
  9. Hi! Just wanted to share my (DIY) replacement for the LIP-4WM which quickly was made while awaiting a fully working LIP-4WM It might look a bit scary for some of you /Per

    Sony MDS-JB980

    I’m using the JB980 for playback and analog recording while the JE470 mostly for digital recordings - a combo that works great for me. Both needed new loading belts and some cleaning but apart from that very reliable. /Per
  11. I'm not convinced that the LS settings helps with gapless sources on newer devices which doesn't cut the stream - even briefly - between the tracks like the older devices appears to to.
  12. I’ve also noted this “lack” of track dividers from certain CDPs and also BDPs. Also, Spotify connect and Tidal streaming with the fancy gapless technology often fails to divide the tracks on the target MD. Going to check if the Squeezebox plug-ins works better in that regard It appears that older equipment fairs better in this regard, ie they simply interrupt the digital stream between the tracks and triggers a new track on the MD. These are my finding fwiw /Per
  13. Ok now I’m officially embarrassed and should have known better than to blame Sony for making flawed equipment ;) The reason for the clipping in the analog signal chain was due to level limitations in my pc-based measuring solution - the same signal path has been used mostly for tape deck maintenance without any issues but didn’t handle the higher output levels of the minidisc decks very well :( I noticed that while tracing the clipped signal with my oscilloscope later this evening. Sorry to waste anyone’s time and I really hope not to be remembered as the guy who posted some question
  14. Suddenly I had this feeling that what if this is "by design" that a consumer recording shouldn't be as good sounding as pre-recorded media with (possibly) some type of control bit set to change the dynamic range in the playback chain like the "HDCD Peak Extension". Just a thought... About SF, the 980 supports it and I don't know when using that if the recording is re-sampled or the range just changed "on the fly" during playback. /Per
  15. Oh that was quick, many years since I jumped between V to dB and dBm that swiftly While investigating this further, I really hope someone else could confirm this as well just in case I've made some kind of mistake here. I hope to have some time this weekend to provide some oscilloscope traces and spectrum graphs to show the horrible result. /Per
