  1. Been away from this forum and MD for quite some time... just reading around.... Curious... what do the JA20ES decks go for when they pop up? I can't find a single listing on ebay, or any where else.
  2. sorry bout that... I pretty much summed up everything that was said.... http://taperssection.com/index.php/topic,7...html#msg1025181 found through this thread: ....http://taperssection.com/index.php/topic,8.../topicseen.html
  3. So I saw this discussion going on over at taperssection. Someone did a frequency analysis of files transferred over a Rh1 USB connection into sonicstage, and files transferred using a legacy deck with digital out transferred in real time. The single report states that the USB transfer had drastic frequency cutoffs above 15k, the waveform appeared significantly different, and the audio quality difference was readily apparent. Supposedly a proper ATRAC component doesn't exist for the PC, so Sonicstage converts the original ATRAC to ATRAC+ 3 before converting to PCM, and this is where the quality loss comes in. I briefly scanned the threads here and couldn't find any mention of this issue or if it has been or is being addressed, or if it even can be. I'd like to see some discussion on this and if anyone else has noticed it.
  4. FWIW.... I was just quoted that $29 refurb exchange...sent the unit in....got back the same unit with a $99 labor fee chargerd to my credit card....I would print out that $29 quote and make sure it's iron-clad.
  5. So my parts were still under warrenty but not the labor, so I filed a claim on their website and they quoted me a price of under 30 bucks and told me it was eligible for an exchange program. So I sent it in with a note with my credit card info and said I authorize a charge of no more than 30 dollars to my card. I get it back a week later and it's my unit ( i checked the serial number) and it had been repaired at a cost of 99 bucks an change for what I assume was the labor. So should I put a stop on the charge? I'm sure they have some kind of loop hole here to say that 30 bucks was just an estimate.....but why say it's gonna get exchanged and then repair it? I feel mislead and would have seriously questioned spending 100 bucks on the repair. They should have called me to authorize the repair.
  6. I have this New Deal recording, and it looks like I was the only one to get a pull that night. My friends been making a track list for me for the past year, and he says he's finally gonna finish soon (for real this time). The recording was made on a legacy md recorder, so I was wondering if there's anyone in my area that has an RH1 and might want to help me do the transfer right. I always want to have a recording at it's best before putting it into circulation. Free copy of course, and it's only two discs so it shouldn't take too long. I would send it to someone in the mail to do the transfer, if there was a way for me to make a backup copy before hand...but there's not, so I'm not willing to part with these original, sole copies. So if there's anyone in the area...orange county, ny....it's close to the city, but it's too much of a hassle to get down there...so anyone on the outskirts, preferably west of the hudson, that would be great..... thanks
  7. If you look on the site, you can choose to have it repaired instead of exchanged for 101.00 including shipping, mine just died too, actually a month before the warranty was up, but I was out on vacation and didn't claim it until 4 days after the year was up, so I think I'm screwed. Hopefully I'll get it extended because my first unit was DOA and they didn't get that back until the end of september.... so that 's when my warranty period should have started.... I must say though that this doesn't speak well for SONY's build quality lately...my r70 are still running without a hiccup and have seen much worse than the rh10
  8. I've successfully transfered mp3's from my iBook G4 1.33gHz os x 10.4.7 to my girlfriends DH10P .... that's one less hassle for me cause she's always clamoring me to transfer my recordings for her.
  9. Looks like $209 is the new low price...... Check it out
  10. Price on Amazon is up to $260 ... I knew I should have ordered a few ..... looks like the topic needs to change Just in case I decide to keep this Dh10P and get my girlfriend a different model.. what's the cheapest player only model out there?
  11. Woodbury Commons Sony Outlet...about 45 minutes north of New York City, off of 87. Price is $199.99, local tax is 8.25% = $216.49. If your interested and you can't get up there I could probably pick it up for you...it's about 10 minutes from my house. I was just there scoping the scene... that's the only HiMD anything they have there... they say they usually sell out quick when they get anything good..... back in the day i used to get r70's there and sell em on ebay for a decent profit. They don't keep good stock like they used to. Still waiting for an RH10, 910 or a mac model. The EH1 is the only new MD stock I've seen in the last year. Edit: Is this a good deal for a player only model? I mean I know it's slim... is that what your paying for?
  12. [OFF TOPIC] They have the EH1 with full warranty (I'm pretty sure it's refurbished) for $200 at the sony outlet by me. Where'd you find it for $180... and was it new? [/OFF TOPIC]
  13. Ordered one a couple days ago and got it today..... present for my girlfriend's birthday later this month, I think she'll love it...her friend just got a shuffle and she's been asking for some kind of player and I already have her convinced how better minidisc is than than ipod .... supposedly if you plug the shuffle into a computer it auto erases everything? So you cant just add more songs, you have to update the whole library at once...those ipods seems like real crap.... So this is the first minidisc I've actually bought for playback purposes and though this camera is pretty much a mockery of the format I still think she's gonna love it. Plus it's a nice collectors piece. And don't worry... I know she's gonna enjoy it just as much as me Edit: Does this use the same battery the RH1 does? Might come in handy.
  14. Well I found a couple of 4XAA to usb power adapters for under $10: http://cgi.ebay.com/USB-Portable-AA-Batter...1QQcmdZViewItem and http://cgi.ebay.com/Portable-USB-battery-p...1QQcmdZViewItem but what I was originally talking about that I thought was over a hundred is actually only about $85 with shipping... it has a usb 5v port and an additional port for between 3.5v to 20v... it's a li-ion with 8800 mah and it weighs 250g...and I think it has a 3 level battery meter. http://cgi.ebay.com/IBM-Sony-Laptop-Canon-...1QQcmdZViewItem Like I said before this would be a nice way to go if you have additional devices to power but as a replacement for the sidecar...those under $10 options seem like the way to go.
  15. How bout 8 AA's and then a 12 volt car to usb adapter? (or 10 if using 1.2v) I really think this ziplink 12v-24v car to 5 volt usb is gonna be my answer. That means I can take anywhere from 10 to 20 NiMH AA's and make a super power pack. Now that's power! It'll only be three to four times bigger than the deck iteself, but who care's. We're talking about professional applications here. Like 4 days in the woods with no power and your car is 2 miles away. Oh.. and the best act of the weekend is of course going on last...Sunday at 9 so those 5 extra proprietary lithiums you bought for your RH1 have of course run dry... and your just wishing to hell for that little beautiful sidecar...how you miss that sidecar. How you wish you would have hiked the 2 miles back to your car so you could recharge... but nay... the sun beat you down oh these last 4 days... the sun and everything else... curse you sony!!! Oh no wait.... I have a 20 battery SUPER POWER PACK!!! I'm saved!!! Of course a single Lithium E2 AA in a sidecar would have done the same job. SONY... WHY MUST YOU MAKE MY LIFE SO HARD!?!
