  1. I haven't visited this forum in years, but driving home today I felt a sense of yearning for years gone by. I got home, popped in a frozen pizza and dug out my Sony MZ-NF610. I dug through an electronics drawer and found the RM-MC37LT remote that came with it, popped in Pink Floyd Animals and MARVELED....ABSOLUTELY MARVELED at the experience. What sound quality, I didn't even have to look at the buttons on the remote, they were intuitive like shifting a 5 speed. I swapped through headphones, first the efficient Koss and Grado RS-2, then the Senn 650's. Not quite enough power from the Sony to run the Senn's so I dug out another relic...a CMOY Penguin Amp made by Robert Gehrke in Germany. What a great experience tonight! I would not sell my gear for anything! A night to cherish really.

  3. FS: Sony MZ-NH1+7 discs

    The reason for selling is I don't use it. It was a promotional gift for signing up for classes with Sun Microsystems. I am in Chicago. Looks like it's going to Ebay...

  6. Net Md Sound Quality

    I've been lurking at Head-fi.org tonight, and I came across a review titled, "Personal CD Players through the Ages ~ A Review. It's long, but I get a kick out of the audiophile-speak. Well, the review got me to thinking that I haven't listened/compared my 2 Sony discmen to my MD players. So I went upstairs and rummaged through my 16 year old daughters bedroom to find one and dusted off the other I found in my closet. I threw in some AA batteries in both units, stuffed my Shure E3C's in my ears, and proceded to compare original store bought CD's to the MD's I transferred in LP2. By far, the MD players shine. I have a very hard time telling that I'm listening to compressed music. I also noticed a very annoying whine in the CD player built in 2000. The 1994 CD player sounded like I was listening through two rolls of toilet paper, it was so "unclear". It's been probably 6 years since I listened to the '94. Now I know what this review was talking about. The quality of sound from personal CD players apparently took a dive after 1992. Try it for yourself. Compare your PCDP to your MD. Which do you like better? Andy

    Wow, no interest? These things are going for over $300 on Ebay WITHOUT the disks. I guess I'll have to put it over on Ebay. This is interesting...

  11. Podcasting Quality

    Have any of you checked out the different podcasts on the inkernet? Go here for a list and instructions how to get the podcasts. Clicky!!! I am currently trying doppler. One thing I have noticed is the quality of 99% of the podcasts is crap. The sound sucks! People aren't paying any attention to their equipment. A good majority are using the built in mike's on laptops, and their PDA's, etc. You can hear hard drive's running, clicks, and other annoying things. The MD would work great for this, wouldn't it? Andy

  16. What Are Your Favourite Albums In Your Collection?

    I like these threads. It gives me something to go on when I'm getting "the itch" for "new" music. Cori, that Opeth stuff is...well...spooky. Andy I'm diggin' Radiohead. I might not have tried them if it wasn't for this thread. Thanks, Andy
  17. Not Sure If This Is Too Risque For Mdcf...

  18. Not Sure If This Is Too Risque For Mdcf...

    You said you were going to PM me, not post it on the forum!!!!!!!
  19. Podcasting

    I was listening to Public Radio this weekend and they had a segment on...Podcasting. "What is it?", you ask. Well, I'm glad you asked. Read at your leisure: http://www.ipodder.org/ Then you'll need: http://ipodder.sourceforge.net/index.php Now, I haven't actually tried using this with an MD player. I'm sure there is some kind of aggregator that will work if this doesn't. I'll venture a guess and say that it won't be easy through crappy SonicStage. I don't have the time to test. This REALLY seems like something BIG. It's like watching a newborn baby being born. Imagine, you can listen to what you want, when you want. The content supply is going to be infinite and FREE. All the Rush Limbaugh's and Howard Sterns are going to have MEGA COMPETION. Ever wanted to be a DJ? Now you can-for free!!! Best of all, we can record a podcast with as little as an MD and a mic. What a world we are living in, people. What a world!!! I did a search on this site for podcasting, and found nothing, so I thought fellow MD fans would find it interesting. Let's see what other interesting things you guys can find out about it! Maybe someone can post a how to for MD. Andy
  20. I've watched the prices coming down and they just went below the $100 mark. That's the buy it now price. It's almost worth it just to buy one as a player/recorder that you can throw around and not care... Andy
  21. Ok, Poddcast Is For Ipod

    Cast M.D. MDxmit MDradio MDcast MD????? Any ideas? Andy
  22. Podcasting

    So far, I have to manually import the downloaded files into Sonicstage. Has anyone figured out an automatic way of doing this?
  23. Podcasting

    Another thing I just remembered. If you miss a podcast/MD cast, you can download it and listen to it when you want.
  24. Podcasting

    I finally got around to installing ipodder last night, and all I can say is...software. It's all about the software. Do you here me Sony?? IT"S ALL ABOUT THE SOFTWARE, SONY!!!!!!!!! After installing ipodder, the program immediately went to the internet to download a test podcast, and a couple of sample podcasts. Then it imported them into itunes automatically. Did you here that Sony??? Then it's just a matter of selecting what content you are interested in and copy and pasting the RSS feed into the "add feed manually" box. You can set ipodder to check for new "podcasts" everytime you launch, or at specific times. As to the reason why I think this is new, is exactly because of RSS and because Apple has 87% of the portable market. Most people who want a portable are getting an IPOD, not an MD. However, they are the listeners. If you want to be a Podcaster, or MDcaster, what better equipment than the MD? Choose you this day whom you will serve, the MD or the Ipod. Will you be on the receiving team or the kicking team Thanks for the MDcast link, btw. I listened to it. Kind of boring, but the first ones probably all are.
