  1. So... I'm broke. Really really broke. Had some unexpected and unavoidable expenses come up that totally wiped everything out, leaving us with less than fifty dollars to get us to April. In order to facilitate eating and bill-paying, I've decided that it's less important to have minidisc stuff than it is to have food. So I'm clearing out everything, every MD-related thing I have. It's not something I want to do, but I don't really have much of a choice if I want to be able to make it to April without having to go hungry for days on end. I'm looking to get $200 or best offer for the enti
  2. The generic green 1450mAh gumstick battery I got from Amazon holds a fantastic charge. I managed to get two and a half weeks of near-daily use, around 1.5-3 hours SP playback per day. The original Sony 900mAh gumstick it came with is quite old and thus holds only about a third of that (it still works, though).

    It would be sensible to keep the RH1 at home and safe since it is hard to come by and has unlimited transfer capability. If you need to use something on your bike I'd suggest solid-state.
  4. I think what the OP means is that by using their RH1 to transfer directly to PC, they'd lose resolution and bit depth as it would force a conversion to 16-bit LPCM. It's entirely possible that their PC doesn't have an optical digital line-in.
  5. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Hi-MD-MiniDisc-player-CASE-holds-walkman-recorders-w-shoulder-strap-EXCELLENT-/121272051208?pt=US_Personal_MiniDisc_Recorder&hash=item1c3c60a608 I saw this on ebay while searching for deals on MD units.
  6. I have a Sharp IM-DR80 that I'm trying to sell. I don't really know anything about fixing MD portables or anything with this many mechanical parts in it (I'm more about fixing smartphones and other solid-state devices that have no moving bits and pieces), but this unit is not quite... right. Currently (as of five minutes ago) the DR80 is playing discs beautifully. Sounds fantastic and all that stuff. The body is in really good shape with only a few small scratches; the worst physical damage is the small tab that locks the battery door in place has been broken off, but you could fix that pr
  7. So on a whim I put a battery in the DR80 again and again it just beeped, but I decided to apply percussive maintenance by bashing it against my palm. This randomly caused the motor to spin up and the disc played beautifully. So I'm wondering if the problem is an intermittent short on the motor's power. I wonder if taking it apart would reveal more...
  8. No, the N505 is not spectacular. It beats most cheap MP3 player audio quality, but it sounds worse than my Nexus 4 and my partner's Sansa Clip. It can't even touch the audio quality of my E520 or the sometimes-functional DR80.
  9. Really? Huh. I always thought it would be very similar sounding (as in, decent but not great) to the N505 I already have.
  10. !!! I want those! What would they cost me?
  11. Well I've been using my generic green gumstick battery for about five days now and it seems to be doing quite well. I've been listening to my E520 for about 2-ish hours a day on average and the battery hasn't been charged since the day I got it, and it's still at 3 bars (though it sometimes drops to 2 bars and then goes back up to 3).
  12. Out of the ones you have, I'm most interested in the Axia "select your style" and "lego" discs as well as the Daiso Cube Mix discs. Still trying to find someone with first-run Sony Lumina in pink. They are quite rare!
  13. I don't mind if they're used as long as they're not dirty or horribly mangled. If they've been recorded on a few (or even a lot of) times, I don't mind because you can record on these things zillions of times before something goes wonky. Max price per disc depends on what disc it is. I'd pay more for something like, a brand-new sealed first-generation Sony Lumina in pink than I would for a used Axia lego disc.
  14. Yeah, I figured it was an impossible pie-in-the-sky dream.
