  1. That's a nice item. Not sure where I would be able to put that on display though, if I had one. Pretty nice item for a collector there. Thanks for posting this up.
  2. Good reading. Yes the comments are well worth a read. You do see a lot of the same old arguments and comments appear, Betamax vs VHS, DRM killed MD, "CD quality...", MD was too expensive etc. Good to see some people speak up though for the format and continued use.
  3. No problem. Actually, I responded to your other post about this pre recorded item. If I see one around I'll drop you a line.
  4. Trades can be any type, as I understand it. I was interested in a "home made" trade. Let me know though the name of the pre recorded title you are interested in.
  5. Wow. Now that's something I don't want.
  6. We observe Earth Hour each year. It's about reducing ones use of electricity, we burn candles and play board games. I'd not have a Mini Disc payer on.
  7. Anyone up for a disc trade via mail? A single disc, nothing exotic it terms of media. This would be a "mix tape", or recording you have made yourself. Message me if interested. Thanks-
  8. I don't know of any retail outlet in Australia that sells MD media now days, A few years ago the supermarkets stopped stocking them here, up until 2010 you could buy them new at Sony Centres here, Prism80's and HiMD, you could also buy "laser " blanks at Jaycar. These days i get blank discs by buying them from people I know, or eBay, or gumtree. I'll pick up recorders and decks on online auction sites, often these will come with a number of used blanks. Seems to be ok. I'm building up a fair stockpile of discs, who knows how we will manage in the years to come.
  9. I used ATRAC 3, 105kbps, this left 11.3MB on the disc. The audio book came with bookmarks/tracks at 3 or so minute intervals, imported as is, so will be no issues navigating through the book. Pretty happy with the outcome. I'm thinking HiMD is very suitable for this. Mark
  10. Hi all, I'm currently converting a 16 CD (20hours, 3 minutes) audio book onto a single HiMD. A little bit of effort, but should be worthwhile for my commutes to/from work. What's your current project? Mark
  11. I agree. What do you think, safter using MD in a car whilst driving for sure, when compared to iPod or CD, what about cassette tape?
  12. Hi I have a spare car unit. It's a Kenwood. Model number KMD 671R
  13. Thanks Z Any other Melbourne based MD fans? Drop me a line, if so. M.
  14. They look pretty good, it's just the time factor though if you have a large MD collection.
  15. Those look good warpgeek. Nice work.
  16. What do you think it will sell for? A local HiFi shop here sold a gold one AU$600 the week before last.
  17. No, sorry. I've never seen it. If I see a copy about I'll drop you a line.
  18. I'd buy one. I've never owned a pre recorded MD, it would be nice to buy one, a "new" one.
  19. I agree. I think that looks like a good approach Jimma. Could be good for field recording also. I'd be looking at something like that at the beach, I don't think sand and MD players are a good mix.
  20. I disagree. I think the NH700 looks excellent. Chunky, fairly tuff, a handful, nice metallic effect plate on the front, nice toggle feel. Good device. Ive taken Stephen's advice and put my RH1 away for special uses.
  21. Any unit that takes the AA battery is an advantage. I'm pretty much a SP and LP2 man, pretty much just use the standard Discs, I have a number of HiMD discs, but I seem to not want piles of albums on one disc. I prefer the HiMD units though.
