Portable CD players (DISKMEN?) with optical out

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

It's been some time since I was last here, I seem to recall a list of portable cd players with optical out. Is it still up somewhere, updated or not? Any availabe new, or suggestions of specific models I might find on Ebay?

Thanks,

Rick

PS: My Sharp 702 (still going strong) originally came with a DC adaptor, 5V & 800ma. I've used a number of replacements over the years, anything with the same specs. I just came across a Sony but it's 6V. I'm guessing it should work and won't fry my player. Am I correct?

My Sony D-E561 has an optical out and I have used it many times without incident.

The list you recall is probably this one:

As for your Sharp 702, you're lucky that you have one that has not succumbed to the infamous "UTOC Error." I am not sure I would use a 6V adaptor to replace a 5V one, but I'm hardly an expert on that subject. I did once fry a ZIP drive by using a larger adaptor than I should have and have been wary ever since.
