So just to liven up the forum give your votes to what is your best sounding player? I am currently comparing these:

MZ-R909 / MZ-N1 / MZ-N710 / MZ-NH600 / MZ-NH700.

 

My current daily driver is MZ-N1 Love it!

It is currently admitted that the MZ-RH1 has the best DAC, ergo the best sound.

I would prefer from far sound form a QS and ES Sony decks.

I really like the sound from the 2nd Gen (RH10,RH910) and apparently this may be because it's analog (!?). The problem with the RH1 is that it's very clear but the sound enhancement may have helped to fry my ears. Hence the EC's insistence on volume capping many are anxious to remove.

The player-only models EH930, EH50, EH70 are all good too.

The 1st generation Hi-MDs do it for me, particularly the NH700/NHF800 with custom EQ tweaked to perfection and paired with Sennheiser in-ears. Bought a load of NH700's a few years back when they were sold off dirt cheap, and not looked back since. Doubtless the higher end models can sound better, but I like the fact that you can pick up AA's for next to nothing here, and not worry about gumsticks or fancy batteries.

While we're on the subject, in many ways the first gen Hi-MDs seemed the most reliable. Especially the NH700. The NH600 is close but the jog wheel sometimes gets unreliable.
