Wow! I've gotta be PCDP King now? - Page 2

post #16 of 47
Well I have the following:

Sony D-915 - (love this player - looks cool and sounds good)

Panasonic 570 - Not keen - perhaps I have a dodgy unit (Jap jobbie though - optical output and LCD remote).

Panasonic (Somethingorother) - all plastic, skips like ****** and goes really loud!!! (Sounds good as well actually)

Iriver SlimX - The dog's bollo**s! Sound quality is exceptional - goes loud, plays MP3's and sounds great with audio CD's. I would definitely get rid of all the others and keep the SlimX.

The Slimx doesn't suffer the line noise problem which the Iriver2 had - although there is still some noise - this is easiest to hear when using the Etymotic 4P's - however if you use the 4S adaptor cable this noise is gone!

The Slimx does look quite good but it's not quite as well made as the Sony D-915 - slightly lighter grade of metal used - rather like the R-900 MD recorder.

I think I am the king!?!?!

Well....I hope the title is mine.
Well, since we are comparing the sizes of our.........collections, I'll go ahead and list them all:

The Sonys--
D-5 (the grand-daddy of them all)
D-7
D-9
D-10
D-11
D-14
D-160
D-T3 (with tuner)
D-T4 (with tuner)
D-20
D-25 (on the way)
D-25S (two of them)
D-35 (on the way)
D-555
D-303 (2nd one on the way--my favorite transportable)
D-830K (car discman with a whopping 3 sec anti-skip)
D-EJ915
DF-S18 (sports Discman)

The Panasonics--

The Others--

Since the original topic was "PCDP King", I won't list my PMDP's or walkmen. Oh, and I still have all of these, I didn't list the ones I've gotten rid of.

lol... so i might not have the most...

but i think the three of them are the best looking Discmen made

As to a lens cleaner... mine is made by 'Bib' and is just a CD with some micro brushes on it (dry use)... takes 15 seconds, and to me is good
post #23 of 47
I think it would be safe to say IMHO that you have three of the best, if not the three best truly portable PCDP's ever made. Anything more than 5-7 years old really can't be used for listening on the go very much due to problems with skipping and poor battery life.

Kieth,
I am sure that you are the real king of the discman. Don't forget to get your hand on D905, and D777...otherwise, your collection will not be completed. Those two really worth collecting..and they are truly ultimate pcdp. Bow to the king (keith)............

sorry, without the d-777 you can't be king. how do you feel about being the pope of portables?

my d-777 is over 5 years old and rarely skips when i'm running around downtown, and i never use the anti-skip. with the battery pack and extra gumsticks, i never get left high & dry. besides, i'll take a cut in battery life for higher output.

Well, didn't mean to nitpick, but is your D-777 more than 7 years old? I basically meant that most PCDP's pre-D-777 and pre-anti-shock can't be used as portably as the newer models like the D-EJ1000 and D-EJ925. Of course it depends what you mean by "running" around town. Actually running? Maybe the D-777 is such an awesome PCDP that you can run or jog with it with the anti-skip turned off and it (rarely) doesn't skip. I am trying to pick up one, but haven't had much success yet, at least not for the prices some people are asking.

lol Meithkiller... thanks for the moral support there

It has to be said that the D-E905 makes my E888s very listenable now! - I've had these since 1995, and never really liked them... but there is something about the synergy of player, and 'phones that seems unbeatable - definetly (to me) better than D777 and E888
post #29 of 47
keith, you said 5 - 7 years old, which my d-777 falls into, and i don't use the anti-skip as it sucks up the batteries too fast for me.

yeah, for running for a bus it will skip, but a fast walk or even banging my computer bag (which the d-777 sits in) or a bumpy ride it will play without a hiccup. it probably helps that i've never dropped it and really treat it delicately, which i DIDN'T do with some of the cheaper discmans i've had--and of course they fall apart or skip all the time. the d-777 is by no means perfect but it's built to be a tough little bugger.

duncan, i was looking around the net for the e905 but with no luck. it must be getting rare like the d-777. by the way, i got my #14 gumsticks yesterday from japan--it took about 3 days!!! got it the same day as my markertec cables (nice). now i only need my cha 47 amp and i'll be a happy man.

Cool Red...

Its a shame how things run... with my two new discpeople yesterday, I now have 7 of the things... if we'd have known that a couple of weeks ago, I could have sent you a pair... nevermind

They will definetly kick butt over the '9s that you currently have
