Also, it helps to know what these things look like because the sellers often times don't post a model number as in my auction. If you are looking for vintage earphones, use Krayzie's webpage that has alot of pictures of what these look like. There is link on his signature. For PCDP's use Davidmiya's webpage or the legendary Portable cd gallery thread.

Haha, that`s exactly what i do. Searching through the listing, starting with the newly listed cd-players in the US and Germany, and checking with David`s site for reference. I had succes with this methode on the german ebay site. I think it has the best selection.

There is a dutch auction site (as in 'located in the Netherlands'):

www.marktplaats.nl

Not as sophisticated as ebay, but you can find stuff there as well (not often). In my case a D-303.

BTW there is a shop selling a sennheiser Orpheus for 6499 euro`s on that site. Is that a good price?

I owe you one.

I really couldn't have done it without you!!

Bye the way I got a Technics SL-XP300 from 1991. It's got 18 bit DACs like the Denon DCP-150. I sounds beautiful but eats up batteries. It sounds a lot like my D-321 but smoother and sweeter.
post #22 of 160
yes, AM, that Technics pcdp is one of the greats and you made the perfect choice! my friend once owned one, and i was always jealous of him
also, it is good that you know your pcdp, because the current pcdp's they make today are ****ty in the way of sound quality...ever brand focuses on battery life over sound quality, and that's just too bad. i understand why they don't concentrate on sound quality anymore, and what type of people they are appealing to, but it's just too bad that us audioholics have to suffer the consequences! oh well, i guess that's why we buy the vintage pcdp's. although i would say that iRiver does make the currernt best pcdp out of any of the current pcdp that i've tried...in terms of options, sound quality, and usability all combined together and taken into consideration as one! good luck to you and happy listening


edit: I know for a fact that i didn't write ****ty in my original post because i never swear unless i'm mad and in the TIO forum??? this is wierd, unless someone changed it??? did any of you mods change it or anything??? i'm pretty sure i wrote crappy??? this is wierd

*clears throat* It seems our friend amadeus-mozart is a very subtle man. He's asking his question in a roundabout way. I shall translate for him....

It is hard to know what the correct price is for some of them (D-25, D-35, D-211, D-303, D-311, 321, D-555, D-777, D-E905, Denon PCDP's, etc) as they appear to surface infrequently.
Translation: Now is a good time to post an ad in the Gear forum.

It would be very interesting to know what Head-Fi members have paid or opinions as to what the prices should be.
Translation: Name your price, you filthy wallet bandits!

So, how are my translation skills?

CD-3400

Anyone w/ an opinion on what the Optimus CD-3400 should bring? I have one (mint w/ box), and have been watching ebay for auctions... but they always seem to end early - usually because the seller CANNOT BELIEVE that some wacko is offering him $20 PLUS shipping for his old piece of junk Radio Shack special...lol....I'm sure that it is always one of us.

The last few CD-3400's that have sold on ebay, and I always find these after the auction close, have sold for around 50 to 75 dollars. A real bargain in my opinion.

Fractus2,

FYI , if you are quoting the D25S I sold you, it was $70 shipped, the cost of shipping to your address [i.e. the $12 I mentioned to you] were included in the sale price. I guess I didn't explained myself clearly yesterday.

regards,
