  1. Proceed with extreme caution: http://forums.minidisc.org/index.php?showtopic=72 - "wild MZ-N707 hack" Edit: Big emphasis on "extreme." I don't want to be responsible if you end up bricking your N707, but that's one trick that you can do with it. Congrats on your N707!
  2. The RM-MC37LT was reported to work with the NHF800 by doomlordis: http://forums.minidisc.org/index.php?s=&am...ost&p=93876 Pimp that remote, sector!
  3. Lone Star: Welcome to MDCF. You could try eBay seller, "digitallimits2003." They usually have both standard 80min and Hi-MD blanks on auction (sometimes buy-it-now) and they do ship internationally. Good luck.
  4. Those are not "Net-MD-only" since both the N707 and N910 have mic/line/optical input. "NetMD" means that music is transferred from PC to MD via USB. The N707 and N910 are "MDLP" units, meaning they can record/playback in SP, LP2, LP4 = non-Hi-MD formats. goldenbreast: You should definitely have a look at the MDCF equipment browser if you haven't already. http://www.minidisc.org/equipment_browser.html It's overwhelming, but there's some good information in there if you're going unit hunting on eBay. If you want to do real-time transfers, you'd have to look for units with line-in and/or optical-in, so definitely avoid anything with the words "downloader" (like Borat also suggested) or "player" in their descriptions. Downloaders can only transfer via USB; and players, well, they just play (lol), no recording function. For real-time transfer and non-Hi-MD (MDLP), you could go with an N510 (it's "hackable," just look up the signature of the MDCF member, "RobShaz," for some really detailed info), N505 (also hackable), or N707 (also hackable, I think) for your stated needs. If you and your budget will allow it, you should also check out the NH700. It's Hi-MD, but can also do what you need and it's one of the more affordable, all-around Hi-MD units. Good luck.
  5. My thoughts exactly. I wouldn't trade in my Shures or UEs for any Sony earbud, noise-cancelling or not. Actually, the only Sonys that I would consider now are the EX90 and the Altus. But, at their current price points, other ear/headphones have them beat (both quality- and price-wise). I'll say what everyone else is thinking: Bose blows. (Edit: I don't have anything against them, but this and many other forums are clearly not Bose fans.)
  6. Ouch. But, now is your chance to develop ambidextrousness.
  7. Ah, sorry about that. When someone asks for opinions about headphones and then lists the specs, I tend to ignore anything at and beyond the specs listing. Do you have a middle or inner ear problem? If it's a middle ear problem (conductive hearing loss), then really, using an in-ear versus a headphone won't matter. As long as you're responsible with the volume levels for both the NC6 and NC22, I wouldn't worry about which one to go for. But, I'm sure you've heard this all before. Blah blah blah - lol. To be honest though, I'd trade in the NC6 for the D66 Eggos (one of the MDCF faves), AKG K81DJ, A-T SJ5, or V6. I haven't heard the NC22 (which may have received good reviews since they're related to the other Sony IEM NCs, I think?), but the NC6 sound pooptastic relative to other headphones I've tried or own. And, it looks like Guitarfxr and I are in agreement that maybe you should try something different from those NC6s. I use both IEMs and headphones, too, but if I had to choose one based on sound quality, I'd go with the NC22. They can't possibly sound any worse than the NC6. Good luck.
  8. If it helps you decide (and your location is USA), I've seen the MDR-NC6 on sale at Target for $25 recently.
  9. I've got a new E40. Well, considering its true age, it's not really "new." It came in some deck/portable bundle that a friend gave to me last year. She used the deck and never touched the E40 since she had an N505 and R500. Now that the set is mine, I also use the deck and have never used the E40. It's a tank and very unappealing to use compared to my other units. The box is nice though. It's made of a very thick cardboard, not like the flimsy boxes these days. I might take some pics of the boxed set to complement your pictorial. This is the first time I've actually seen any interest in this oldie. Congrats on your find and enthusiasm!
  10. Eye-catching pictorial, as usual, Ishi. lol I'll have to say I do like the disc better when wrapped though.
  11. The need for sunblock prompted my trip to Wal-Mart today. I haven't been there in months and this is what I found: Underneath the 5+ price stickers, the original sticker on these says $79.99. Now, they're a whopping $15 even. The Wal-Mart that I went to had 4 of them right next to the HDMI cables clearanced at $2.50 and some other Wii/Xbox360 clearance stuff. I didn't buy any (personally, I don't like the PSYC series), but I thought I'd post this in case anyone's in the market for a back-up downloader/titler, a throw-around NetMD unit, or cheapo way to get someone introduced to the format. Check your local stores if this is the unit for you.
  12. Volta: No problem. I love to shop. smkranz: Congrats on making your son happy, regardless if you did it with Bose or not. I'd imagine that 1 smile from your son is worth much, much more to you than the X number of approvals from any internet forum. For the holidays and other special occasions, like you, I'm also of the belief that what matters more is what someone "wants" and not what they "should" get. A few years back, I bought my brother some iBuds to replace the ones he crushed; yup, he wanted the STOCK iPod earphones. He was so happy and that was enough for me. But, this year, I got him a pair of the Shure E2G and now he's happier.
  13. Correct. Now, get to shopping for one!
  14. MiniDisco still has the D66SL in stock at $99.95. About $10 more than what AudioCubes used to charged though.
  15. I have lots of Hi-MD gear, but I use Hi-MD about as much as MDX-400 does.
  16. I know which seller you're talking about and I believe they're holding out for more money. Back in early 2006, they had just started selling MD units - their main items were all household/bathroom items and they now have separate stores for their electronics and home stuff. Friends of mine got new NH700s for ~$85 (auction-style and after shipping) and $125 (buy-it-now with free shipping); these prices were that seller's usual listing prices at the time. That company has since jacked up their prices because they're now well-known by MD enthusiasts and they see that their auctions are successful in getting them much more money than when they first started. They also used to have the NH900 for $190 (buy-it-now with free shipping), but those have been out of stock since last summer. It seems that their MD stock came from the Australian blowout of 2005.
  17. Heavy metal and opera.
  18. Wow, I'm surprised anything super-old is that cheap coming from the DAPC. The replacement earpads (just the covering, not even including the memory foam underneath) of my Sony headphones are priced at almost US$50! Each!
  19. Hehe, I figured you meant M200, but I just thought I'd clarify to be on the safe side. The model numbers can be a nightmare especially with a lot of vagueness and misinformation on some websites out there. You're not completely defaulted to the RH1. There are other recorders like the NH700 still available; it's nowhere near the looks and abilities of the RH1, but it does have its advantages over the RH1. I feel that every Hi-MD unit is "missing" something (that's why you'll see a lot of us owning almost 1 of everything - lol). But, basically, the RH1 is relatively the easiest unit to get now, is the newest, and has a lot more recording/playback abilities compared to the older units, which is why I'd recommend it over something like the RH10/910 or NH700; it's probably the most complete unit. I don't own an RH1 myself because it offers me no added benefit over what I currently have in my MD arsenal (see my profile); getting an RH1 would be MD overkill for me. I don't need uploading, mic recording, or mp3 playback. So you see, there are some of us who haven't defaulted to the RH1. Happy shopping and good luck!
  20. If you haven't already, try checking out universal adapters that state that they are "for digital cameras." I've seen them with high V and mA (1000-2000 usually). For starters, things like the Energizer ER-AC1 might work, but it doesn't state the mA/A. Good luck!

    Buying LIP-4WM

    No scam. It's legit and that guy is liebflea's cousin - lol. If you go back to the older posts in this thread, you'll see what I mean (about liebflea). This whole thread is dedicated to the discussion of LIP4WM from China, particularly the seller, liebflea, but I'm guessing all Chinese sellers are similar (with their packaging and product) except for price. Whether those batteries are "real" or not is up to you to decide.
  22. The RH10 is discontinued so it's pretty hard to find lately unless you eBay it. And, there's big differences between the RH1 and M100. Edit: It's the M200 and RH1 that are the same, except the M200 comes with a mic. I'll let others highlight the pros and cons of each, but here's some background information for you. RH10/M100 RH910/M10 RH1 Welcome to MDCF and good luck!
  23. Found on page 2 of this Hi-MD section: "Buying LIP-4WM." http://forums.minidisc.org/index.php?showtopic=16019 Good luck!
  24. Completely missed this thread. Downloading now. Thanks for the heads-up again.
  25. Looks like a no. Start reading at post #6 by Urban Fractal: http://www.audiotstation.com/forum/showthread.php?t=16494
