Plot twist - it is the hugo!
Never thought I'd see someone still using minidisk at this age. Then again, this is head-fi after all.
The price-raise kind of de-motivated me for a hugo.
Now I feel old. My first grey hair come out... grey like my NH1.
Compared to a 128 gb micro sd card a hi-md is a dinosaur, but its the Sony charme from its its miniature mechanics that wins my heart. Also, the MZ-NH1 sounds very good.
Check this thread.
Thanks man.. very informative! And yet, now I have so many more questions haha
