  1. Well I have a "hacked" euro model NH-900 and a Japanese DH10P (2nd Gen). The volume on the NH-900 is measured in steps up to 30 & on the DH10P it's just a progressive bar (no numbers) On my hacked model NH900 26/30 is quite loud, but equivalent to only 2/3's of the total bar on my DH10P. This makes me think that there is indeed a hardware limitation as well in the euro models as discussed here http://forums.minidisc.org/index.php?showtopic=11124 The output on the DH10P unit is absoulutely fierce and just blows the NH900 away completely. The quality of the sound is also outstanding even at high levels. It is a real shame that euro DH10P's & the like are limited to a meagre 2.8mw in europe. Edit: Having said that I rarely need to go beyond 22/30 on the NH900. The advantage of the 5mw on the DH10p is that it elimates the need for a "Line Out" mode in the software. You can also find out the exact output levels of all HI-MD models by looking in the service manuals in the download section.
  2. Take a look at this: http://www.jp.sonystyle.com/Qnavi/Detail/ECM-TL1.html?s=ecat It is an earphone condensor mic for recording telephone conversations etc.. You put it in your ear like an earbud but the outside of the bud is a microphone. You should be able to put it direct to the mic-in of your MD recorder. I have also seen them on sale in Europe.
  3. What you may want to do is install the latest version of MDAC from this location: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details...&displaylang=en Make sure you are logged in with an admin account. Once done, reboot. Re-start Sonic Stage and let us know what happens.
  4. Yeah me too- shirt pocket, jacket lapel or even on my tie if I happen to be wearing one.
  5. Try looking at this article: http://kb.sony-europe.com/SRVS/CGI-BIN/WEB...8,Case=obj(573) It talks about Net-MD's not being recognized, but the concepts discussed are equally applicable to HI-MD's. Let us know how you get on.
  6. A lot of headphones have this now - if you pass the the right bud (the longer one) around the back of your head first then put the left one in, they should be at the same level. This way the cord doesn't pass in front of your neck where you can knock it out, it simply hangs down from the left.
  7. Yes they ship with the Japanese RH10's (Coloured to match unit) and DH10P (Silver for both the silver and black units). It is a backlit, one line, Kanji capable remote .

    See my reply in this thread: http://forums.minidisc.org/index.php?showtopic=11517
  9. Unfortunately the info on the Sony website was not correct & I think the ebay sellers are quoting from the Sony site. This unit does not have a line in. It is a player - and a bloody good one too - but a player only not a recorder. Hence DH10 ("D" for download as opposed to "R"). If you have any other questions let me know. I have one of these units and am very happy with it.
  10. I'd go for 3.2 which you can get here: http://www.sonydigital-link.com/DNA/SonicStage/SS32.asp?l=en But if you really need 3.1 try this link: http://www.sonydigital-link.com/DNA/SonicStage/SS31.asp?l=en
  11. What Hi-MD do you have? What version of Sonic Stage do you have installed? Did you install Sonic Stage and the hi-md driver before attatching the player to the USB port? Have you tried plugging it into to any other USB ports on the same computer?
  12. Tested this on my laptop with 2 Ghz processor & 1GB Ram. The application only stays open in the active processes for about 2 seconds before disappearing. I wouldn't worry about it too much. As atrain says it's probably just closing down gracefully (or trying at least).
  13. If it's any consolation the other side of the box is all in Japanese.
  14. I can second this, I have bought from him a couple of times. Both occaasions were hassle-free with ultra fast shipping. He's a top seller. Incidentally his ebay id has changed to "buyfromjapan".
  15. I also purchased recently some cd's like this eg. Kraftwerk's "Minimum-Maximum". Sonic Stage if I remember had some issues importing from the cd's. However they went through with MD Simple Burner absolutely no problem. (I was using SS3.2 / Simple Burner 2.0 - sending to NH-900 Hi-MD and also to Mz-DH10P). So before anything else try using Simple Burner.
