  1. Wow, that looks pretty awesome... I might make one myself using laser cut acrylic. I recently make my own acrylic stand for my MD players
  2. i much prefer the character of the 2nd device. the bass is better defined and the sound feels more vast. i think its clearer too.
  3. downloading them, and will give em listening test. will update soon.
  4. i see, perhaps because its used i only pays about 100usd at that time. if it was me, I would never buy speakers or headphone / earphone with out trying it first. review means nothing, even mine. test it out, see it it fits your ear, comfortably that is, looks at a mirror while at it, pick one that doesn't makes u looks like a dork. see if the cable be detangled easily or whatever. there are things beyond the just the sound. after done demoing around and u find one that sounds great to u, and the rest is also damn good. well, that's the one. blast the volume and raise a middle finger to anyone who said that your cans are crap. same with a pair of jeans its indescribable, it means nothing if it fits your bum poorly, or makes u looks like someone u despise, regardless of the bagde and price.
  5. i cant recomend akg 242hd enough. i have one, i bought it 2nd hand, itsva demo unit from a music store. its really good, it got clear mid and a relatively punchy bass, the treble is not harsh as well. also because its an open air headphone, it makes vast sound space, separation is also decent. the construction is very sturdy yet at the same time light and comfortable. the headphone unfortunately is very power hungry, only powerful devices can power it properly. it also leaks sound. definitely best for home usage. my rh910 needs to be at 50% at the least to make good sounds. however my samsung A8 would need almost 80% volume and it does sounds trashy. if u got a decent amp to pair it up, it would sound even better. i paired mine with a china made amp. Nobsound MS10-MK2 & Topping TP30-Mark2. it sounded awesome with both. i also like sony mdr-ex650, its very good, perfect for bass head, treble and mid remains clear n crisps. its my go to for lower powered devices like PMP and my Samsung. still its no contest compared to the akg. regardless i would still recommend getting the akg 242HD, its a good purchase and investment as it will accommodate for upgrades imho
  6. Oh, okok, thanks PilippeC, That clears up the HD Digital Amp somewhat... In regards to the Volume limiter i was referring to the volume hack, the links for 1st gen HiMD hack is no longer available. Regards Kris
  7. Hai... Im wondering is the moniker "HD Digital Amp" means anything? Out of curiousity i read through the minidisc.org and i notice some players got HD Digital Amp some doesnt. Can anyone feel any difference between the 2? Also, does anyone knows how to remove the volume limiter and enable custom EQ on european model MZ-NHF800 series? Thanks Kris
  8. btw, perhaps u can use this remote to gain back the display n its function. Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/132199156035 I think its going to work, it got the menu / navi button and the scroll. thanks
  9. how much would the MZ RH1 without display would sell for? Btw, if an MZ-RH1 fails to record but play back normally, do you think its salvageable? Thanks Kris
  10. if u use smart aa/aaa charger like this one http://www.xtar.cc/products_detail/productId=63.html u can safely modify it to fit gumstick batteries. it will charge it up properly
  11. hay, i used this to make my own ghetto nimh charger. in principle its just a cradle to fit the square battery to a cylindrical fitting. works like a charm i use it to charge nh10wm and vapex batteries without issues. based on some articles of the net it says Formula for manual calculation for battery recharging processesAAA – AA – C – D sizes rechargeable batteries:hours ( charging time ) equals to 12 x Ahr = hrs OR 12/1000 x mAh = hrs ( 12/1000 x mAh = hours of charging ) so my 1000mAh nh 10wm will take 0.012x1000:1.65 = 7.272hour to charge at 165mA it seems to work just fine till now.
  12. wow, thank you. that is plentybof reference to read about. cool i will read up on these. it would be new knowledge and should be an interesting experience.
  13. nope, nothing is tax exempt. the ugly part is there are no clear rules on bringing things into the country. its an extortion mine fields. the one i got pass through custom coz its very small cardboard box with used hobby parts costing 10usd label on it. should the sender write 100usd worth of music player, it would surely be impounded, and i would need to pay huge amounts to bail it out. oh yeah, real time recording through optical line out is very very good. atrac hi-sp is sufficient for my needs. i havent find anything worthy to record at pcm yet. thanks for the tip, i will give it a shot. i have odesza album in flac. it would be awesome.
  14. hmm, torrent... never thought about it ever since kick ass tor is no longer with us. pm me some link if u don't mind? unfortunately minidisc are never sold in indonesia. the one who have them here are mostly expatriates or those who studied abroad. to buy decks abroad and bring it back home is a rather risky, not sure if i can pass customs. its scary. btw, how do u transfer flac direct to atrac? ss4.3 wont even read flac. thanks
  15. Hay Philippe, I must say the sound quality from the minidisc unit is much better than a solid state unit Cowon D2 and even my samsung phone included. Funny how the same mp3 file can sounded much different on every player, and i happen to love the characteristic of sony players. I have a Sony D-NE1, and it just blows the water of every player i have encountered, and I recently found that RH910 which can play Mp3 directly sound not far off. The Minidisc is still second to my CD player in terms of absolute sound quality, but in terms of feel the minidisc won hands down. CD feels plain wonky after i have my hands on minidisc. The small size of the player, disk, variety of color, etc, it just feels good to hold, feels mechanical. somehow it gave me that physical connection with the music collection that i got. For once i can see my music library in color ( jazz is light coloured, pop is red, electro is blue, and the mix session is in green ) it just felt good. Perhaps im just getting old n feeling nostalgic. Oh ya, in regards of why does it have to be able to play mp3, because most of my music files are in mp3 320. Recompressing from mp3 to atrac makes the sound quality worse to be honest. To transfer between the pc to md is fast enough, but to encode it before transferring it, it takes considerable amount of time more. Another caveat of having a minidisc, is because i have good internet connection at the office, i can just record live net radio and listened them on my commute. i have to be on the factory floor most of the time so my pc is mostly idle. I did the same at home using my real radio to record talk shows n stuff. sorry for the long post, i really must be getting old XD
  16. Repair guide. https://waybackman.wordpress.com/2015/06/03/45/ The parts https://www.encompassparts.com/item/6728038/Sony/1-802-022-11/Indicator_Module_Organic_El Good luck with these
  17. hay, i would like to purchase a mz-rh series player. i personally have mz-rh910. but i really feel i could use another one as a backup unit... i dont mind another mz-rh910, but of there are other unit it would be nicer. a more affordable unit like mz-rh710 will do. i dont have much cash, so i dont mind if the unit have cosmetic defect or something (missing chargers / nimh batteries) or no accessories... as long as it perfectly functioning i won't be reselling the unit and it will be on display if not being used. i mainly played mp3 files that i already have in my hdd, so yeah native mp3 playback is much preferred. thanks in advance!
  18. ah, thanks for the tip, i will try them. im still waiting for the optical cable that i bought to arrive. to be honest so far i have been recording music of YouTube, those 1 to 2 hours long of mix which i simply cant get anywhere else. the beeps n what not can be turn off from sound control panel BTW, but yeah occasionally it still happened. mainly i recorded from radio (radio talkshows) my pc got optical out, so definitely goin to try.
  19. hai, i will think about it. as i just found out that mz-nh series doesn't natively plays mp3 like the mz-rh series does. i actually started to thinking of saving up for the mz-rh10 of yours. heheheh. gotta work damn hard I know here is my set so far, 20 years of collecting worth of stuff
  20. Dear Sir, what do you mean by not working? Does it produces any sound? or is it too tiny? Sorry to ask, but did you connect to the right cable? or do you press the right button? Because sometimes u need to press pause & rec at the same time to get the recorder to trigger, before any sound is being outputed to the monitor ( heaphones and what else ), then press pause again to start recording. Thanks
  21. Hey, I just wondering if anyone has opinion in regards to recording music from PC to MD Recorder in Hi-SP. How much does using analog 3.5 cables compares to optical? Also how does recording quality differs from older MZ-N series to the MZ-NH and MZ-RH If anyone can give some description on that? Thanks Kris
  22. err, i mean the download windows pops up, but never show progress, then soon after it said download failed. To be honest I havent try again since i already got the files tho... it might be just a fluke in the network connection. anyhow... i didnt use SS that much, i mainly record directly from line in.
  23. the download fails to even start, it always timed out.
