Portable MD Player Appreciation Thread

Since there's a PCDP appreciation thread...I think it's good to have a PMDP appreciation thread too...
Those above 30 years old more or less owned a MD player before...
Thou it's not popular here in Singapore...but I like MD player more than CD player...

My first portable MD player in 1998 - Sharp MD-MS722:
Slot-in machanism...good sound quality...jog dial design...a bit like G-Shock and very thick...


Then in year 2000 - Sony MZ-R900:
My first MDLP recorder...very slick design...surprisingly the LP2 quality is quite good...


Then in year 2001 - Sharp MD-ST770:
A MD player that support MDLP playback...I still prefer Sharp DSP than Sony...


Then in year 2002 - Sony MZ-E10:
The 10th anniversary MD player...the slimmest MD player...like a cigarette case...but sound wise it's not that good...


Then in year 2004 - Sharp MD-DS70:
So far the best MD player that I have...sound quality is top notch...and it's still working after 9 years...


Then in year 2005 - Sony MZ-RH10:
My last MD player/recorder...support Hi-MD function and MP3 playback...but sound wise is just so so...

Nice collection u have there. I had a Sony md walkman b4. Very impressive sound quality because sound is recorded from the hifi system's audio out lol. But it didn't last long as it spoilt just after a year.

Yes...I like the remote too...
Now I left 3 MD players: MZ-E10...MD-DS70 and MZ-RH10...
MD-DS70 is still running well...RH10 the laser pickup is weak...can't read lots of discs...E10 is totally dead...
Oh...I have a MD deck too: Sony MDS-NT1...too bad Win 7 does not support it anymore...sigh...

Buy the blank disc and record the songs from CD lor...
Last time can only record the song via optical line...real time transfer...
Until Net MD came out then can use PC to transfer...
Like kazzzam says MD is a dead format...even the creator Sony gave up this format last year...
But IMO the sound quality of SP mode is really good...

Had 2 before.. and recently i even bought a 2nd hand sharp just to play my old disc... remembered recording songs to the MD and was a fun but tedious process compared to today.
