I use a discman that's really old and needs replacing. Yes, I could get digital music player but if I do that I feel I'll abandon my re-born disc collection.
One reason I want to replace my current Sony S2 discman is that I feel it's not powering my Mad Dog headphones well; I have to make it as loud as it will go in a quiet surrounding. Also, there are three 'sound' options on the discman which adds bass - I need to turn it up to level one (of two) to give the roundness of bass I desire, but then it can be boomy.
If I'd have to get an amp and strap it on to whatever discman I have, then I will probably settle and get a good digital music player because the bulkiness of the current discman is already pushing the envelope of portability.
Thanks for reading this.
