  1. New forum appearance and downloads

    Only a year late to this thread, but I concur it looks good! :-)
  2. Opinion & tips

    Ciao Sergio, Just wanted to say your sites are a great resource for all of us who appreciate Minidisc. Please keep up the good work.
  3. FLAC to MD

    If I was doing this I would do the following (I am assuming the FLAC and WAV's are all 16-bit 44.1 khz which may or may not be your case) 1. Use the FLAC command line tools to batch uncompress all the .flac files into .wavs (the audio information contained in a flac file is exactly the same as a WAV it just takes up less space) 2. Import the WAVS into Sonic Stage or X Player or whatever 3. Edit the metadata in the application 4. Transfer to MD and use the transfer settings to convert on the fly to Atrac3+ But as other people have there are probably a few other ways of doing it.
  4. FLAC to MD

    Can't you just de-compress FLAC to WAV losslessly via the command line FLAC tools? You shouldn't lose anything in this process quality wise, but obviously if you then transcode this to Atrac or Atrac3+ then you are compressing the files and eliminating some information.
  5. FLAC to MD

    I may be wrong but, couldn't you also decompress the FLAC files to WAV and then transfer using SS (optionally converting to Atrac in the process). I think this would work if you were going to Atrac3+ but not sure it's the best route if you want to go to traditional SP or LP2.
  6. What have you just bought?

    Nice - I am also a big fan of Sony's shortwave radios and have several myself.
  7. MZ-NH1 charger

    For me if you want to charge the NH1 through it's cradle and not have to charge its batteries via another unit, then you are better off getting a 6V ac adaptor and avoiding USB altogether.
  8. MZ-NH1 charger

    Even though the PSP pin might fit the base I am not sure if it will charge as the NH1 original AC adaptor was not AC to USB like the RH1 it was a straight AC in adaptor of 6v i think. If I recall the PSP AC adaptor is 5.5. You used to be able to get these Universal AC adaptors from Sony like this: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Sony-6V-AC-E60A-World-110-240-V-Universal-Ac-Adapter-Standard-Plug-No-Box-E-60-A-/231142858460?pt=Multipurpose_AC_to_DC_Adapters&hash=item35d1301edc Not sure if you could maybe find one at a lower price
  9. Playing ATRAC files on Android

    * Moved to software forum
  10. Can somebody upload a Japanese version of sonicstage?

    If would advise a copy of X-Application as this effectively replaced Sonic Stage V. However I don't believe it is compatible with XP. Are you able to install a JP copy of Vista or Windows 7 into a VM. Let me know, and I will see what I can do. If you do only have access to Windows XP I should have a copy of Sonic Stage V on an external HDD or possibly SS 4.x on a physical CD that came with the DH10P. I will have to dig around a bit. Edit: I have just found Japanese copies of SS 4.3, 3.0 and I probably have a 2.x version somewhere. I'll let you know if I find SS V and if it is XP compatible. * Moved to software sub-forum
  11. Is the forum software a little off or is it just me?

    I am using Chrome without issue but can confirm if I use IE11, then the Quote / MulitQuote functionality isn't working. To get around it you can hit F12 and enable the IE10 compatibility settings as shown in the attached image.
  12. wanted: red Dh10p

    If you could find one of those, you will be very lucky indeed - they were extremely scarce to begin with - Japan only, limited edition, only available though the Sony online store. Beautiful looking unit though.
  13. Ok, well our 10 days are up and it's time to count the votes. Not a massive turnout it has to be said, but for those who did vote, the results are in... So with a score of 11-5 (or 11-3 if we eliminate the duplicate votes) the result and policy of the forum going forward is that "We won't allow topics promoting ones own eBay auctions at all on the forum" Any such topics will be deleted. We will update the Classifieds forum to include a sticky to remind everyone. *Thread closed
  14. I don't think anyone is doing this out of spite or expects you to "sell cheap" on this forum. Some people may or may not agree with your prices, but I think the crux of the question was whether we want to see the classifieds section fill up with pointers to eBay auctions. I created this poll to at least try and arrive at a consensus in a transparent manner. Maybe that was being over optimistic...
  15. Classifieds policy

    Ok, thank you. I think we will put the curtain down on this particular thread before it gets out of hand. We have a poll running to decide what to do with eBay auctions in the classified section. Let's wait for the outcome of that and steer clear of mud slinging. * Topic closed
