Very interesting, informative, and entertaining discussion. If ratings were still available, this would be 5 stars easy!

|I've read a number of comments that the Sharp has "stronger" bass than Sony machines -- this has been my experience, too, so I decided to see if I could get a "flat" output from it. I went into test mode, went to EEPROM settings, then to "DEQSET," and changed all the settings to hexadecimal "00" (except for FLp, because that's the only one that's not in the 7xx EEPROM, so I figured it could be something that the MT15 needs.) Well, it seems to have worked -- after comparing the sound before and after, and comparing the same disk to my wife's un-hacked Sharp 702, the hacked MD-MT15 has a much different sound to it, one that I personally prefer. The bass is not as emphasized nearly as much, and it gives a much clearer sound to the music overall, also more definition to things that were almost drowned out by the bass.|
