I have 3 working portable CD players right now. A Sony d-e401, Panasonic sl-s160 and an sl-sx510.

I don't need all of them, so I'd sell one for cheap.

I read here and there people using "Dark" to describe a sound signature. Could someone explain what does that mean ? I guess It Is "bad" ?

Thanks In advance

I would take that to mean somewhat bass and mid heavy. Little treble extension.
I wouldn't say necessarily bad but not to my taste.
This is not definitive of course. That's the trouble with all these terms that we use.

Dark is not bad, it's a matter of preference. The opposite is airy, sparkly. Dark will be tilted a bit towards the bottom end where airy or sparkly tends to be tilted towards the top end

Whether it's bad is completely up to you. It tends to mean less treble and more lower and mid bass.

The Audeze LCD-2 is known as a dark headphone, yet it defies the usual clechés by having great treble and details.

+1 For me an example of light and shade is the Sony MDR - 1R vs the Grado SR 325E
