I have to admit i dug out my old Sony Discman and it made me sad how much better it sounded the my clip+, E11 combo.  It gave me a sinking feeling that I was going to have a deep pain in my wallet

I really want to pull the trigger on a NOS D25 but I'm worried I won't really be able to carry it on as a portable device. Can't really fit it in my pocket...

As Nike say, Just Do It!

And get a backpack.

You guys are seriously making me GAS for minidisc player. I had one way back in the day but it got stolen and went mp3s since then. I just caught myself browsing ebay for prices, and had to restrain myself.

Nice one ! But does the Tera player really benefit from amping ?

There were a number, well many, of the silver released. They were made after the black. They also tend to skip less, being less sensitive to vibration due to better suspension. The problem is, is that some of the lubricants are drying up and the unit will not work so you have to take it apart and lubricate the correct part, which isn't hard if you know what you are doing. Also there are some capacitors starting to go bad in the units. Yes they are nice and were excellent for their time and for some years after. But then who plays one cd at a time now and how many buy cd's since you can get hi rez downloads that never warp, scratch or get lost. :^)

the 3 hour battery life is the main problem for me:)

 ~That is a tasty looking IC you got there. Looks like 2 strands of Piccolino + some heavy insulated silver?

are we really amping a TP. It sounds so good on its own and this surely is an inferior amp, in fact most i have tried are, it is also double amping as TP has now line out....

Criticisms of double amping are grossly overrated.
