Well I picked mine up on eBay for £84 ( On bids - Ive seen it for around £158 buy it now ) when I was looking for a portable DAT recorder.
The DAT will have to wait a few months now lol.
As for which model. I never had a Discman when I was a kid so I have nothing previous to compare against,
However I will say IF you can pick the D-EJ2000 up in good condition with ALL of its included extras, I can say its a great CD Player,
I'ld go as far as to say it out performs any 'budget' CDP I've heard.
The handy thing about it in this day and age of hi-fi ( portable especially ) is the optical out.
The D-EJ2000 itself has a 1bit DAC ( Lol, I know ) but now we can feed it to an E17, D-Zero, ODAC, Boomslang etc etc and get far better performance on the go.
Im now actually looking at the Sony PHA1 DAC/Amp specifically to go with the D-EJ2000 so I can have a complete Sony portable rig when I choose with high end performance.
( We need more headphone smilies for different braands lol )
There are other models obviously but this is the only Discman Ive owned & had experience with.
Hope that helps mate?!
