Attention all MD users!!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am going to take the plunge. But the question is which unit to get. My requirements are 2X mono playback, which as far as I know only sharp models have. I will be recording my lectures as I am still in school. MDLP is not really a requirement, but sound quality is. I will be recording cds to md in SP mode for playback. I did some research and think that the Sharp 831 is the model that best fits the bill... any suggestions...

I am using the MT832 (same as 831, just has some Japanese text support for titling) for about a year and a half. I am very happy with it, the sound quality is excellent (using Sony MDR-888LP), warm and rich sound, I record a lot of CDs and MP3 playlists of my computer and for some reason everything sounds better when played on the Sharp. Overall the music has that full and warm "analogue" sound to it, very enjoyable and not fatiguing at all. The bass has 4 settings (0, 1, 2 and 3), and gives better bass than the Sony MD's (I've auditioned a lot of various models before buying the Sharp).

Build quality is excellent as well, the unit has a metal body, very solid, I haven't had any problems with it yet. The remote is handy and well designed (although the Sony remote is better thought of IMHO). I usually carry the unit in a pouch designed to carry police handcuffs, may sound weird but it fits the 832 perfectly and is made of heavy duty nylon type material.

I am sure you will not be disappointed with this model, I know I wasn't. Hope this helps.

831 has quite a reputation, get one if you can! otherwise the mt90 and similar Sharp units are pretty damn good too, and rather affordable to boot. specially if you don't need all the fancy stuff.
