  1. Ideally, I am looking for one as close to unused as possible, no damage and with all the accessories (preferably boxed).
  2. I would really like a pink one, but haven't yet managed to find one in good enough condition. Or if I did, they sold before I could get to them.. Not to worry 🙂
  3. The blanks were for the collection and for recording also. Box of Panasonics, some Axia singles, Sony Red Hot (will use those as I have dozens already), TDK Fine, and some interesting Sony's in retail hangers and a TopValu 1st series, some Daiso's and probably some other stuff I can't remember... (oh a couple packs of Bit Clubs - the Blue telegraph wires ones and the original translucent bar codes).. Sorry, I meant another EH50 in general. I just have one silver and one blue. 😉
  4. The MXD-D4 sounds interesting Kevin. Look forward to seeing the pictures! This week I was completely swamped with work, but did get to spend a couple of hours with the Victor XM-B22P which arrived on Thursday. First impressions are very favourable, a nice little player and sounds really good too. I'll post some pictures as soon as we are able. A shipment of blanks from Japan also arrived on Thursday, oh and I bought another MZ-EH50 (silver) - oops..
  5. Only managed to watch about half an hour of it so far, but some interesting units in there. A white E630 the same as mine, and the EH930 is also a good find. Will be interesting to see which ones actually work..
  6. Let me do a test... Yep - same problem... Let me see if I can reach out to Chris
  7. Of course, I'll definitely post some pictures when it arrives (hopefully next week). Not sure what your colleagues use to listen to music, but that's a bit rich, given that most modern smartphones are probably twice the size an MD player. 😆 Even my Onkyo DAP is a brick compared to most player-only MD Walkman's in my collection. I would probably get the same kind of comments as you did from my colleagues, the vast majority of whom are all younger than me...
  8. I must have sent everyone to sleep with an overdose of budget MD's 🤣 That's an interesting one, I'd be curious to see what it is - on the face of it, it sounds like a possible encoding glitch, but a bit odd. I have only used LP2 a few times, usually when I was recording from CD and likewise wanted to fit in the last track on a single disc or something, or a very long time ago, when I lived in Holland and had cable TV / radio, I would record music from the cable radio stations from my cable decoder via the optical out. I do have a few pre-recorded MD's, but they are all in Italy and I don't have an MD deck with an optical out to attempt an MD to MD copy. 90% of my MD's are from CD's and I have not noticed any big audible artefacts on the rare occasion when I have used LP2. On a completely unrelated note, but still kind of within the overall theme of this topic, this week I was really enjoying using my MZ-E630. It's "only" an MDLP player (not Hi-MD) and doesn't have the HD Digital Amp of later Sony's (or the MZ-E720/730), but I really love this unit, it sounds really good and just looks really attractive. Very simple design, but really nice to use.. I also found a close to unused Victor XM-B22P player, so caved and bought that (wasn't too expensive). Looking forward to its arrival.
  9. The old MDCF thread in question that Ishiii refers to is the one you already identified:
  10. I tried to search for the link on the Wayback Machine, but it does not appear to be archived
  11. Daiso MD | Natural Series (2021 Revisited) Daiso's Natural Series is available in five color schemes: Blue, Green, Pink, White and Purple; and in both 74min and 80min variant. Made by Saehan of Korea, they are very similar to Saehan's own Natural Wave series. Only the text on the disc itself is different and the wrappers have been adapted for Daiso. The 74 minute discs were only available with individual cases and wrapped as single discs. The 80 minute discs were only sold in retail hangers without cases. There was also a slim case 5 pack version. 80 Minute Retail Hanger Version
  12. * Pictorial original post updated to add TDK ho Blue 10 Pack Paper Wrapped singles
  13. Konica MD | Live Digital Believed to be from around 1999, this series from Konica was made by Saehan in Korea and comes in 60 minute and 74 minute variants. A simple disc design. There are two variants of the disc shell - one partially frosted as shown here and the other completely smooth (this latter one seems to be scarcer than the partially frosted).
  14. I have a few of these same discs recorded on and have not had any issues with them to date, same with other Maxell discs. You will be fine I'm sure 😉
  15. Oh, no problem. it's a good question. I haven't had any issues with them. Like I say, they can be a bit bare bones sometimes, but I definitely use them. All of these models were indeed Japan only. Sounds like the Twinkle's (or just Color Collection I think they were called outside of Japan). Is it like this one - if so, yes it's a plastic shutter. 🙂
