Wow, how much did that titanium player set you back?

I'd love to see a pic if someone is willing to post one.

Holy crap... argh you guys got me wanting the WM-DD9 too now!!! I HATE YOU GUYS! ARGH!!!!!!

No... I really have no idea when they would come, sorry to get you all excited... I'll write a review as soon as they come...

So the WM-DD9 is titanium, the HS-PX1000 is titanium... that makes two of us...

edit: how come I never knew that the WM-DD9 is made out of titanium too... or is that just a sick joke on head-fi... oh well I don't know... Aiwa claims that the HS-PX1000 in 1991 is the world's first titanium machine and the WM-DD9 came out in 1989/1990...

Maybe you guys got it wrong, it's forged magnesium?!? Show me the manual!

Humm... you know both forged magnesium and titanium should be scratch resistant... my MZ-R90 lid is still scratch free, and I've dropped my Ericsson T39 many times and the back is also still scratch free... both with forged magnesium... amazing!

most all of the pages on the dd9 are in japanese, but i remember reading a translation that called it a "weapon"(!) and mentioned the shell is 2mm thick titanium. if you look at it it has that titanium finish. who knows? yang?

scour ebay krayzie, they come up once in a blue moon. i was especially lucky, after losing one auction, i won the next. the seller e-mailed me and asked if i knew what kind of deal i was getting. i told him i was well aware.

the headphone out on the dd9, the sound quality, etc., are so far unmatched in my collection. mine needs some repair right now, though.

1) D-555 (airy and neutral sound) = Denon DCP-100 (most accurate and strongest output)
2) D-777 (fun and dynamic,but dark sound)

Overall (sound+portability) = D-777

Still havn't heard D-303,D-515,D-311,DCP-150 (guess it's pretty much the same as DCP100), Philips AZ-6xxx,Technics SL-XPS900 and Optimus 3400 and that expensive($400) Marantz PCD.

Out of a headphone jack:

1) iRiver ChromeX imp-150
1 1/2)iRiver ifp flash player

(There must be some difference but I never took the time to really compare them. With the mx500s I didn't noticed much difference. Also the diffence I think I hear can be due to the low quality wma vbr I use on the flash player. wma9 with vbr is very good in low bitrate.)

3)sony d-e305
4)sony old basic walkman (forget the model)

What about ranking the lineout as well, while you guys are at it. As for me, I don't have much to compare with and still waiting for my D-12

No, it isn't

The DCP-150 is noticably more accurate and detailed than the DCP-100. The DCP-150 has 18-bit DACs, the DCP-100 uses the same 16-bit DACs as the D-555, D-25s etc.

What do you guys prefer? Accurate sounding or colorful sounding?

It's like this, true taste or with seasoning? hehe

2. Panasonic SL-CT470 (silver)
3. RioVolt SP90
999: RCA K@zoo 32MB (just plain sucks)
