  1. Hi-md deck at 352 kbps or Sony ES-serie at 292 kpbs?

    It's actually a very difficult question you are asking. There are different uses for both bit rates. You therefore have to make a decision on what you want to use minidiscs for. From just a sound quality perspective I think 352kps may be marginally better, but SP has full stereo so it may depend in the end on the tracks themselves. I think, however, that the key to solving this is your *other* deck. Is it also a Sony SP deck? In that case having a number of decks in the same format would make more sense than getting an Onkyo Hi-MD deck. But your setup may allow both formats to exist side by side, so I can't say for sure. Basically it's this: if you want to invest in decks I would go the SP route; if you want to invest in portables go Hi-MD. If you want the best sound quality possible without the advantages of the minidisc format go PCM (uncompressed WAV).
  2. In need of inspiration from fellow md fans

    Is the UK MZ-RH1 volume still capped? I remember reading a hack which lifted the volume restriction but at the risk of completely destroying your unit. Maybe I should get the silver RH1 as well when the opportunity comes by.
  3. We will forgive Chris if he can use his influence to make Sony release a Hi-MD deck, new portable line, and new MD car units Oh and some software that actually works properly. Any ideas on a timeframe?
  4. Yes Sony killed Minidisc, but they did make the best units out of all the manufacturers (which makes sense as they invented the thing). I've had Aiwa and Technics MD units crap out on me, I never had a Sony go bad.
  5. Gaps + dropouts that make me wanna smash my machine

    That picture is hardcore dude. Make sure no civilians are around you when it happens.
  6. FS: MZ-RH10 with accessories

    That screen is so damn beautiful. I wonder though how long it will last before it slowly starts to fade out. A bit like the RH1 no?
  7. Stickers and MDs

    Does anybody here have experience of applying stickers to minidiscs? What methods do you use? Were you successfully able to use the reverse of the disc as well? I am asking these questions with a view of creating a huge number of MDs including artwork, track info, and so on. I may also need to re-apply stickers if the contents of the MDs change. I will be applying stickers to the discs themselves and not their cases, at least initially. Any help or ideas appreciated.

  9. eBay MiniDisc Related Listings

    Most of these Sony Hi-MD units now seem to end at a minimum of 50 GBP. Nobody can get them at 20 GBP unless you are lucky enough to spot a 'buy it now' unit at that price very early on.
  10. MiniDisc Addiction. Do you have one?

    It's very interesting you would say that because there are some forum members here who say the opposite i.e. that it is Atrac3+ 352 which is better than SP 292. There is a frequency analysis thread by Avrin for example which demonstrates that the 352 rate is able to capture some of the very high frequencies better than SP can. I think one reason which could explain why SP may in fact sound better is that Atrac SP uses true stereo (co-designed with Dolby) whereas the new Atrac uses 'joint stereo'. At high rates supposedly joint stereo works just as good if not better but your result shows that this may not always be the case.
  11. I wonder what version Atrac this uses....maybe 4 or 4.5?
  12. Wanted: Hi-Fi Mindisc player.

    It's not so surprising really. Almost everybody has dumped the MD format completely now. It's going to take a lot of work on your part to secure a high-end unit; it took me years to get a decent setup. It won't happen overnight that's for sure.
  13. Looking for Sony JA555ES or JA50ES

    ^ Nope I distinctively remember that it was ending on August 7th. Somebody on this forum must have contacted the seller and got him to end it early. That's strategy for you.
  14. Looking for Sony JA555ES or JA50ES

    It's gone already! Some people obviously have that sort of cash to burn even in these tough times. Did the thread starter manage to get it I wonder.... I should have charged a commission to this rich dude lol.
