  1. I wondered why that Mexican Coke tastes so good!!!!
  2. I go through phases of irritation with Md/HiMd and end up listening to my IPod till the sound drives me nuts and I go back.I date MD but won't marry her at this point
  3. Hang on to those MD's my friend. After all these years of Ipod madness, they still don't sound as good and its still about the sound isn't it?
  4. I have several older portable MD players with bad headphone jacks that I keep around hoping I'll find the time to try to fix
  5. I've been looking for them as well. Do they ship to the US?
  6. it is indeed a wonder but a bit fragile. Be kind to it and good luck, welcome
  7. Keep in mind that many people still use cassettes and even buy new prerecorded ones in countries outside the US and western Europe
  8. I have 5 MD units and one HiMD unit and I think I'm good for now..finally. I have bought an sold a few to get to this point and now have the ones I want, though i may swing for a pro deck in great shape if one comes along cheap. Now the quest is on for a stock of discs. I use gold sony discs for album transfers, except for clear discs which I use for Motown stuff ( I have a lot of these). I use colored discs for various artists comps and blue HiMd discs for data. Can I have enough, don't know. I'm so far from having all my Cd's let alone Lps transfered, its hard to say
  9. Never thought to try to play podcasts through Qt. I did always wish there was a better program for Mac to store and play music, but haven't found one yet
  10. I discovered awhile back how much room ITunes uses, but have a bunch of stuff still on there as well as my kids libraries. I guess I don't have your gumption, balls, whatever. I still use my i-Touch for laying around on the couch etc but what I don't do any longer is listen through the ITunes program while I'm on the Mac. I listen to MD's on my trusty MZ-1 and also use it record stuff off the computer and I use my RZ-1 for back up data storage. My next big project is recording Lp's to MD. This will take eons, maybe my practical lifetime, but hey...
  11. I figure this will change with some time. People who jump in now will give up and go IPod when they cant get all the latest comforts (and crap sound) they desire. Patience, as usual, will provide
  12. And its true and logical, but neither is what drives the marketplace
  13. There are still a lot of 1gb discs to be had, on line retailers, ebay etc. The question, I guess, is for how much longer
  14. All the discussion and beefs aside, the main reason I switched back to MD from Hi Md (even though I have a Mac) is because the Rh-1 is of such shoddy construction, which shocked me for a Sony. A great unit and even better if you have a Mac, but alas, I cant trust it. I have two and have to baby them both just to do transfers. Like many have cried before me, just one more model would have changed everything...
  15. The A808 is one of the best sounding players out there.If I were gonna go for one, it might well be the pick. I have an IPod touch which I barely use as the sound is so harsh. MD just sounds better than any of these players I've heard, so I keep going with discs
  16. Good deal! Nothing worse than error codes!
  17. I get the same message when I try to erase discs on the RH1, I put them in my AIwa MD deck and and it erases fine. I don't know why, wish I did
  18. I have two of these and both have crap jog wheels. The unit is just not built well, especially when you consider the MD units of old. A handy, poorly designed/built machine
  19. I too am interested in this on MD. If you can help, I'd be grateful
  20. Too bad I missed that one, are you gonna list your other items?
  21. I'll be standing there with a box of MD's in on hand and a stack of broken units in the other. I hope I don't see that day. This weekend I traveled an hour each way to drop off and pic up my AIWA tabletop unit (see icon) from repair. I seem to be fixing or having fixed one or the other every few months. The good ones (older models) are wearing out and the newer ones are not built well to start with. Its a race with the clock I'm afraid
