Playing Hi-MD discs with older players
Posted 26 June 2012 - 12:15 AM
I currenlty have two MZ-RH1 recorders and would like to purchase a cheap player to offload the wear from these expesive units. I don't want to spend a lot on this "replacement" but everything I run into below te $150 pricemark is very old (year 2000-2004).
Sorry if this has been answered before.

MZ-NH600, MZ-NH700, MZ-NH900, MZ-EH70.
Hope this helps.

It seems like even the units listed here are becoming more difficult to find at a reasonable price. Some folks are listing units on eBay for crazy prices and the sad thing is they are not selling, then they continue to list them again hoping to score big, I think they end up sitting on a shelf and no one wins that way.
As Stephen mentions, just keep vigilant and watch eBay daily to spot the deals.
I would love to have folks share links to their ebay.com saved searches for portable MD players. I had a couple of really great saved searches and then changes ebay accounts and lost them.

I know I could just go for a cheap MD player but that means carrying more discs and embarass myself using a thick oddly looking gizmo.

What do you think about the MZ-NH900? I've never seen one in real life and would like to know if it's close in size with the MZ-RH1.

Problems I had got now with mine since 2004 : buttons do not answer anymore (after one repair), characters on the screen tend to fade with time (after changing the screen 4 years ago), charge do not start anymore (contacts???).
Phamcu (like me in Vietnam) who repair all my decks is not equiped (no spare parts) for portable units, meaning only jim.hoggart in U.K. can do the job one day for me.
So if you get one Hi-MD unit in "good order", ask questions.
I have the personnal feeling that Hi-MD units have a more short life than Net-MD units. Anyway I have a NH600 and two RH1 in reserve.

that is why my NH900 is still in stock waiting for an english trip to jim scheduled for my next - long - trip in France
Interestingly, I have an NH900 in at the moment which is displaying charging problems. Very finicky about what battery is in, and even successive charges can differ on the same battery. As it's not a simple fix I can push out quickly, it's been in a few days now. Hopefully soon, a bit of experimentation with the voltage settings may help the problem. If I can ascertain anything concrete I will report on it further. I may also have other NH900 units in stock which I can use to qualify my findings.
