  1. babies are good but I can't keep them forever. in 1 week they're in the trash
  2. $145.00 plus shipping. paypal if you pay fees. We need to work out payment methods since I'm not familiar with it. can't seem to add pics, flash or regular
  3. MZ-RH910 working model with AA battery sidecar attachment that comes with it, RM-MC40ELK thumb remote manual USB cable also included: my homemade battery box disguised as a dental floss box Church mic preamp ST-20A 4 himd 1gb discs 4 gum stick batteries. hitech charger WY-346 missing but I'll look some more: charger. best reasonable offer. I'll guarantee recorder if everything is returned prepaid in same condition I sent it within 5 days of receiving. No refunds on shipping either way. Everything worked for me when I last used it about 2 years ago but batteries are what they are. Not sure how well they would hold a charge even though 2 were new and used/charged a couple of times.
  4. Check out my recent vocal. http://forums.minidisc.org/index.php?autom...si&img=4323
  5. I had the same problem with my RH 910 gumstick batteries They do wear out so if you have recharged them a few times they will loose it's stuff so to speak. I got tired of fighting it. I bought new ones from Orient of course, and I think even one of those was bad. I got so I couldn't count on them when I had a one-shot recording session and have changed completely to my olympus digital which uses 2 AA's. Not only are they easy to come by, I get hours upon hours from one set (or one charge for my rechargeables) as well as more recording time since they don't depend on the limited MD disc capacity. I must say I only record so maybe you are stuck with the MD if you use it mainly as a player. I don't think my Olympus is made for playback quality. I'm not familiar enough with the NH900 to know if it even is meant for recording. good luck
  6. My batteries should suffice now, I'm pretty sure I'll never use the R910 again except for a backup if the LS-10 breaks. Another plus. The peak and record LED's can be turned off. I also turned off the backlight. Then there is a function button you can program to do a menu item. I programed mine to turn on the backlight. Now I can adjust the level or check the level by hitting the backlight for a few seconds and not disturb anyone. The level graphics has a peak line that persistists momentarily so you can spot the peaks pretty easy. With the R910 I had to anticipate a loud section and turn on the remote and observe the level indicator what a pain. Now when there is a loud section I can do a quick hit of the backlight and check the persistent peak indicator on the level graphic.
  7. using the remote and checking it now and then while recording (backlite may draw some power). I always, from day one with the sony batteries and with 1400mah gumsticks, got at most 3 hours at 44.1 PCM, about 2 disks worth. They did weaken noticeably so I had to purchase more on Ebay (oriental origin - Vapex brand). 2 in a pack, one is worthless at less than 1 disk and the other can make it through a disk but I wouldn't trust it to do much more and usually would change it out when I changed disks. (disk at PCM is 90 min) I never confirmed it but I did a recording in compressed format and I thought it was a lot longer, so the activity of writing to disk apparently is the the power drain. Do you get 6 hours at PCM or in the compressed formats? So far it looks like I can expect 6 hours of 44.1 24bit recording with the LS10. I can't buy the gumsticks locally so purchase is overseas at high dollar and a crap shoot on reliability. Another plus for the LS-10.
  8. I been playing with it for about 30minutes worth and jut now finished recording 3.5 hours and the batteries still show full. With my RH910 I couldn't get an hour and half out of them without using the supplemental AA battery caddy. I would have to record an hour then replace the disc and batteries--start all over setting the rec settings to manual. What a pain. This battery situation is a big improvement over HDMD.
  9. I did a few tests on my MD, a RH910 and my LS10. Using righmark I did their test for simple desktop speakers to my panasonic mics. Nothing fancy but it compares well. Other factors such as my methods, mics speakers are all common problems so they may mean something. There are a few output results from the standard test but I am posting the freq response. then I did a test with a 10k resistor into the mic at lo and hi sensitivity. LS10 Low sens MD low sens LS10 High sens MD High sens

    Any easy way to check mics to get them close to same output. I'm getting tired of losing so much editing room because my mics are 6db off. Is soldering and testing the only way. Anyone come up with a good jig?
  11. As owner and user of the RH910 I just purchased this LS-10 for these principle changes I needed: recording without occasional clicks of the mech disc; AA batteries; persistence of settings; length of recording without changing anything and last but most important 24bit. So far it seems it will do the job. With my MD I did get to be fairly stealthy by using the remote for checking the level. The gum batteries are not dependable and soon barely last an hour. A set of new ones I got (from china of course) one can't hold a charge right out of the box. They pretty much need the supplemental sidekick aa unit for the needed recording time. with the LS-10 I can set the function key to turn on/off the backlight and I can turn off the LED's for stealth use and with 12 bit I don't have to sweat going up to near peak. I record stuff with huge dynamic range and need the resolution at the low end. And now I can either turn it off between sessions knowing I won't lose my settings or I can just leave it on since the battery life seems to be holding pretty well.
  12. They really seem to be popping up now. But I don't think I can wait either. Size is important. I don't know what oled is but will have to investigate. It does seem clear. There's some youtube videos on all the new recorders Here's a nice site with comparisons and reviews. http://www.wingfieldaudio.com/compare-port...-recorders.html
  13. http://www.d-mpro.com/users/folder.asp?Fol...mp;SubCatID=188 haven't check into it yet but it is the shortest of the one's I've be looking at , 4" 102mm
  14. I read a few googles and it may be the mfr is out of business and the name or line is owned by thomann which may be ok except I couldn't readily see a support page on the item with manuals or specs. If I upgrade from disc to flash I'd want 24 bit. I'd sure go for a stealthy flash recorder where one can easily check clipping and record to 24bit but at least as small as my RH910. I wish they would leave the mics off and they all are so thick 1 inch or better. the RH910 has issues for stealth value but the small remote stick helps.
