Portable CD Players item created by nightmancometh, Jul 20, 2010
Pros - Poor Batt Life
Cons - Sound quality is excellent, analogue feel !
None other then myself, player is long gone !
Back in 1988, when it was first launch by Sony.
Pros - Outstanding sound
Cons - Rechargeable battery life
Bought this player and the accessories for in-vehicle listening when driving from MD to/from OH in the early '90s. Unfortunately, vehicles then did not have aux inputs. I used the (in)famous cassette adaptor to listen to my U2, INXS and other CDs during the 6 hour drive. The D-555 is/was incredible; the car's speakers and cassette adapter - not so much. I loved the surround and EQ settings that created a very pleasant listening experience despite the constraints of the balance of the setup.
Pros - the best line out
Cons - not really portable
People call this King of the Sony Discman. Ebay used to have super high price on this item.
I own one before and the line out is super. Phone out is not that powerful but very good for female vocal.
