    I managed to get a new on elast week on fleabay, unopened and perfect - pics here http://www.audiotstation.com/forum/showthread.php?t=35525 The battery seems fine as well!
  4. Have searched but cannot find out, looks to me like NO.
  5. Really need a Auvi, i have a dr400e but want a dr7/77 or a player (metal bodied) , my NHF800 is near perfect with just a tint scratch (2mm) on one side, it comes boxed with radio remote , charger , cable etc. Anyway open to offers, or if you want to sell me a Auvi PM me! Mark
  6. A Mint condition Sharp IM-DR400E(S) boxed with everythin and 9 new 80 min discs for..... £20!!!! Cant wait to hear it, i listened to a DR480 a while ago and i remember it was much more dynamic sounding than the N10 i had at the time.
  7. Sorry for very late reply but just seen your replys today, in respect to DAcs or lack of in digital amplifiers , In the analog amp signal chain PCM data from the DSP would get converted into an analog signal by the DAC, and then be amplified. In digital amps the DSP receives the digital source signal , processes it and outputs it as PCM , there will then be a PWM processor that will covert the PCM into PWM format, this is passed to the Powerstage, this converts the 3.3 volt PWM signal up to around 20 - 40 volts and usually passes it through a low pass filter at this point it is in the analogue domain. So no DAC as such.
  8. Ok have confirmed that the 2 files are exactly the same by converting to wav and comparing the wavs in right mark, so sonicstage is basically creating an exact copy (explains why it takes about a second) , why is the question now, i think it changes the drm settings of the file.
  9. I think i know whats going on... In sonicstage if i look at the properties of my files i now have 2 copies of it listed , now they are exactly the same size but there is one difference , my original LP2 files were encoded without any DRM so againt the copy protection field it says 'none', however the second copy says 'available'. My theory is that Sonicstage has to add something to DRM free files to make them work on NET-MD , this may be why they transfer fine to HI-MD.
  10. I had it set to convert to LP2 , i only noticed it was set that way when i spotted the duplicate files. I set it that way when i had mp3s and LP2 files in my library, it meant that when transferring to my RH10 it would transfer the atrac and not the mp3.
  11. Ok this is a weird situation, i converted my whole MP3 collection to LP2 because it is the most supported bitrate amongst minidisc equipment, it will play on my Hi-MD player, my MDLP deck and Net-md players etc. Next what i did was empty my sonicstage library and reimport the LP2 files so that there is no MP3s in my library. All good so far , now if i transfer to my RH10 with the settings set to convert to 132 atrac 3 it transfers the files as without conversion, obviously knowing the file is already LP2, however if i plug in my Net-MD and do the same it creates a duplicate file , i dont think it is transcoding the Existing LP2 file to LP2 again as the converting takes about 1 second per file. Can anyone tell me if the 50 minidiscs i have created have now got an inferior transcoded copy of the LP2 tracks on my PC?
  12. I am gutted, i really hope Sony havent killed Hi-MD. I love the format and if they dont make new ones the prices for used ones will go up and the media will get harder to find, eventually my RH10 and RH710 will die and where does that leave me... Sad day indeed.
  13. Interesting question, thomson have invented a way to store 10 times as much data on a cd/dvd/bluray disc and have patented it, it works by splitting the laser into 2 and manipulating the pits into different shapes from the standard lozenge shape (rough description). I think any player can read them but they need to be written with a new writer. I think it will be your Hi-CD.
  14. The RH10s unreliability was inherited from the NH900 i reckon, my NH900 had a shonky stop button and was fond of switching itself off for no reason! The NH1 and RH710 are the most reliable Hi-MD , never had any issues with those babys.
  15. The discs can be of a different quality its just the content that doesnt change.
