    Sony MD Walkman MZ-R90 buttons and jog dial not doing right functions?

    Did you ever get a fix for this, I have the same unit with the same fault. Hope at some point you didn't get it fixed and sold it as I may have ended up with it :) lol

    looking for bluetooth headphones: Sony MDR-1RBT or Sony MDR-10RBT?

    Just got the MDR-10RBT to try, this is my first BT headphones.   So far not very impressed, the upper mids and highs are almost missing and rather muddy low end.   Do they benefit from some burn in time, been running them for about 2 hours and think I made a mistake.   My main cans are...

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    Thanks for your replies, just looked up the Vali not seen that before but like I say I wasn't looking. Thats cheap so I can maybe go up in the range a bit.   Long time ago when i first got my HD600 I once looked into a music fidelity x-can, but it looks like they no longer make that.

    Original vs. Remastered Albums?

    Why did the label "AAD" "ADD" and "DDD" die out.   Back in the day this help sort the wheat from the chaff, no one seems to use it anymore.   Does anyone know was it part of the red book standard or was it marketing?
