  1. Sometimes when playing YouTube, the sound stutters a tiny bit as if there is a break in the data or sometimes the buffer runs out and the sound stops altogether. Playing the video a second time solves both these issues but is there a way to stop playback until it has fully buffered so as to save playing everything twice?

    Wait until the slider bar is completely red before playing the video.

  2. This Wikipedia article covers the basics. PS3s "downscale" the audio. A better option are universal players. Universal players play SACD, DVD-audio and DVD. About.com has a solid list of players but it's a little old. You'll want a player that supports HDMI v1.2 or later. It will output the full digital audio signal over an HDMI cable to a compatible AV receiver. The best universal player right now is the Oppo BDP-83 Blu-ray player for $500.
  3. I'd be interested in the EH70, I have been looking at one from Germany for months unable to decide. I have one player-only NH700 but the slim form factor of the EH70 is appealing. One reason I held off was hoping that it might pop up in the equipment browser (hint hint someone!). How much is postage to Canada?

    Oh - it requires a charger stand, cannot be charged with regular yellow-tip 3V?

    I have a similar EH50. The player uses NH-14WM gumstick batteries. It has a proprietary power connector. You'll have to use the dock to charge the battery in the player, but the dock does use the regular yellow-tip 3V.

  4. The manufacturer can have an impact on sound quality, but not that way. With digital media, it's about the error rate. Poorly made media will have a high error rate. Too many errors will result in corrupt or lost data. Digital devices have built-in error correction, but this only works up to a point.

    The technical spec Sony developed for minidisc is very strict. As a result, there is almost no difference in data quality between discs made by various companies. The biggest difference among manufacturers is the quality of the cartridge that houses the disc. Poorly made cartridges will either crack or split or the shutter will snap or pop off.

    BTW, I also have a bunch of Sony and TDK minidiscs that I will be selling very soon.

  5. i dont want to sound negative ...

    Could've fooled me. I've never had those problems with Memorex discs. I did have those problems with a set of MAXELL discs. Are you sure you didn't get those brands mixed up? It's a common mistake.

  6. Now that I've switched to Hi-MD, I don't need as many blanks as I used to. I'm selling some of the excess for a $1 each plus $5 shipping in U.S. and Canada (more elsewhere - Paypal only). You don't have to buy the whole batch. I don't mind splitting them up. Most of these discs have stuff recorded on them in either SP or LP2 format.

    Memorex 74 - 10 discs


    Memorex Color 74 - 10 discs (5 never used)

    These don't have individual cases but come 5 to a box.
