    The DIY Discman Repair Thread

    For D303, if you put the discman vertically and it plays fine, the motor needs to be replaced.

    Sony MDR-E888 replacement?

    I found this Sony MDR-225G earbuds from ebay for only $29.95. They are cheap and look cheap but have huge sound stage and great sound quality (Better than E888). These are earphones from 80s.  Unbelievable that they still available!

    Sony PCDP ?

    Go to ebay and get a Vintage Sony players like D303,d350,D555,D321,D311 and you will be amazed by the sound quality of those old players.   I would say none of the recently made mp3 players can match them.  Even the very expense one.

    Is Sansa Clip + really that good?!

    The clip is mediocre in sound quality.  Rockbox de-grade the sound even more to digitalized and robotic sound.    The headphone out has poor power output due to it's size.  You might be good with low impedance earphone.

    First of all, try to turn off EQ and other useless sound setting and see if you still get distortion.

    Review by 'faichiu' on item 'Sony d 303 discman'

    i own around 4 of them before.  d303 has the best phone out.  I love its detailed and warmed sound signature.  I found the sound quality beat all the recently mp3 players as of 5/11/201.  It also has very good line out but d555's line out is better than d303.  the optical out is a plus if you...

    Review by 'faichiu' on item 'Sony D 555 Discman'

    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.

    The DIY Discman Repair Thread

    Yes, adjusting pots does not alway fix the skipping problem.     Totally agree that D303 has the best headphone output.  I bought a D555 and compare with D303.  I prefer D303's headphone out more.  But D555's lineout is unbeatable.     Quote:
