Some pics of sexy vintage CD players - Page 3

post #31 of 42

first posting ever to this forum...........have started a collection of pcdp's mostly from ebay before they all disappear from view, well the decent ones anyway.

the problem is knowing when to stop!........this is a contagion. Sites like this should be held to account for encouraging the weak of will and promoting audiophile lifestyles wink.gif

these vintage CD players routed through a outboard DAC (Fiio) +Grado SR80 expose limitations of AAC files played through an ipod Touch which are more than adequate for

outdoors.........will post my collection for those interested soon.

^ Welcome to Head-Fi and sorry about your wallet. I've been down that same route when I first joined. It was my quest for a Sony D-E905 that led me here. Little did I know that the D-E905 would be first of many vintage pcdps that I would acquire. Now that I've stopped buying vintage pcdps, I look back and admire the sound of my purchases which consists of vintage pcpds from Sony, Aiwa, Denon, Philips, and Technics to name a few. Have fun and happy listening.

Yup, those D-5 (D-5A or D-50) are built like a tank. The first Sony Discman model that started it all back in 1985, I have 3 of them all still work flawlessly.

I used one just like this all through high school and college. Still have it, probably buried at the bottom of my closet or in the storage unit somewhere.

 

 

Thing was tough. It lived in my truck for about four years and rarely got taken out. That's Louisiana heat, too. It was also the only portable cd player I could find at the time where the skip protection worked well enough to keep the music on a lot of rough roads.

 

For some reason, music in the car has never sounded as good as it did then, on a Walkman through a cheap cassette adaptor to a Kenwood tape deck connected to a set of 10-dollar Kmart speakers, flying down some country road with some Van Halen blasting, my dog hanging out the passenger window and a tallboy High Life in my hand. :)
