Emergency - MD Clearance Sale

Rate this topic


Recommended Posts

So... I'm broke. Really really broke. Had some unexpected and unavoidable expenses come up that totally wiped everything out, leaving us with less than fifty dollars to get us to April. In order to facilitate eating and bill-paying, I've decided that it's less important to have minidisc stuff than it is to have food.

So I'm clearing out everything, every MD-related thing I have. It's not something I want to do, but I don't really have much of a choice if I want to be able to make it to April without having to go hungry for days on end.

I'm looking to get $200 or best offer for the entire lot:

MD units:

Sony MZ-E520 (pink) - in near-flawless condition and perfect working order. Sounds absolutely lovely and gets ridiculous battery life on a single gumstick.

Sony MZ-R700 (blue) - in near-flawless condition and perfect working order. I have done the Type-R firmware hack on this unit so it records SP at higher quality than stock.

Sony MZ-N505 (silver) - in fair condition and perfect working order. Cosmetically it's a bit beat up but it works just fine--I've been using it to make digital recordings via optical and title tracks in SonicStage.

Sharp IM-DR80 (silver) - in excellent physical condition but unfortunately works only when it wants to. Sometimes it refuses to spin up and requires percussive maintenance to get it playing. I don't know what's wrong with it, but I suspect it may be a loose connection, possibly power to the motor.


Sony RM-MC33EL (white) - in near-flawless condition and working order.

Sony RM-MZ4R (black) - in like-new condition and working order.

Sony MZ-E520 charging dock (pink) - in like-new condition.

Sony 100v 1A 3V AC adapter (center positive, fits all three Sony units), this one came with the E520

Sony 120v 500mA 3V AC adapter (center positive, fits all three Sony units), this one came with a recorder I don't have anymore, but it fits and works with all the others

HQRP 1450mAh 1.2v gumstick NiMH battery - nearly new, has had only four full charge cycles

Sony 900mAh 1.2v gumstick NiMH battery - the original pack-in battery for the E520, it still holds a charge, but only for about 12-14 hours in SP mode vs the 36+ hours for the HQRP battery

Repurposed Sony earbud slip case - this nylon hard pouch fits three MDs very easily if you slide them in shutter-side first.

Sony MDR-E808SL earbuds (pack-ins that came with the E520)


10 Victor CLEAR MD 80 min

20 Sony Niege 80 min

6 Memorex Crystal 80 min (with Memorex Crystal 6 MD box)

6 Fuji MD black 74 min

3 Sony Color Collection 74 min (2 red, 1 orange)

1 Sony Color Collection 80 min (blue)

5 Maxell Color MD 74 min (1 purple, 1 pink, 1 blue, 1 green, 1 yellow)

1 Hi-Space Color MD 80 min (blue)

1 Minidisco.com Robot MD 74 min (cyan)

2 Daiso 28 capacity MD boxes with latching lids (pink)

I will ensure that all discs are erased and cleaned of labels before shipping.

I'm looking to get, as I said, $200 for the lot. Best offers may be accepted depending on situation. Buyer pays shipping. I'm going to put these up on eBay eventually, but I'd like to avoid the headache if at all possible.

I would really put all of this on ebay and sell only to U.S. buyers with U.S. paypal accounts. Honestly, I don't want anyone taking advantage of your situation. Do not accept any offer below $200 plus shipping. Some people on here already own multiple MiniDisc players.
