    Sony sports wallkman is skipping all of a sudden

    Hi. My Sony sports discman is skipping all of a sudden, after 3 1/2 years. I keep it on the lowest skip protection. It has never done this before. Do you have any idea why it's doing this?

    Jogging with Senn PX-100s

    Hi. The Sony sports headphones I have been using are guaranteed to short out within a few months. I always lose sound in one ear. Why does this happen? I'm wondering if I use some Senneheiser px-100s while jogging if they will last much longer if not indefinitely. Can anyone offer any thoughts?

    Does a CD player stay warmed up in standby mode?

    Hi. I've noticed that my home CD player sounds somewhat better after about 15 minutes of playing. Does a CD player need to be fully powered up to reap the benefits of warmup, or does a CD player remain warmed up in standby mode?

    New Sangean DT200VX: how does it compare to the DT200V?

    Hi. I just scissored open the new Sangean DT-200VX and directly compared it to the old, DT-200V. For the first time, it is possible to scroll through the memories in either direction on the VX. On the old model, you could only go up, and it was very inconvenient. However, you must press a...

    New Sangean DT200VX: how does it compare to the DT200V?

    Hi. A few months ago I bought a new, Sangean DT200V. It works great. However, I've gone to the CCrane website and learned that there is a new, improved model, the DT200VX with "improved AM reception." I wonder if anyone here has had a chance to compare the new model to the old one, and...

    Difference in sound quality between Arcam CD73T and CD192?

    Quote: Originally Posted by Asr I'd like to find out more about the SQ difference between the 2 models too. I'm pretty certain I'll be taking the DAC upgrade route too eventually, but it's going to be a huge money sink so I have to massively budget for it. Arcam says the DAC...

    Does it hurt a CD player to leave it on all the time?

    Hi. I'm having a problem with my Arcam CD73; I get a "no disc" message. The problem seems to go away if I simply leave the unit on all the time, without a disc in it. I can turn the display itself off so all I see is the soft glow of the power lamp. Does this harm the unit?

    Difference in sound quality between Arcam CD73T and CD192?

    Quote: How about telling us when you've finished the upgrade, I'm sure that a number of us would be interested. Perhaps there are members who have already performed the upgrade, I'm sure a lot of us would be interested, again, hence my original post.

    What is simply the best way to burn in a brand new CD player?

    Hi. As soon as the unit arrives at the shop, I will be buying a brand new Arcam CD192. What is the best way to burn this unit in? Should I just listen to CDs naturally and let the process happen by itself? Does the unit need to be burned in at all?

    Need help with the headphone line out on my PCDP

    Thanks, I happened to be online when you posted your reply, I read it and followed the steps you outlined. Worked like a charm, the problem of the sound going in and out intermittently as the headphone jack moves around is completely gone. My jogging will be a lot better now that I don't have...

    Anniversary of 9/11, and praise for the portable radio

    I remember 9/11, 2001. I was stationed outside, away from all information, while the events were going on. Except for one thing: I had my trusty Sangean DT 200V. With it, I was able to tune in to NBC TV and listen to all the events while they happened. This post is in praise for the portable...

    Hoiw does SQ of D-NE920 compare to D-NE330?

    Hi. I'm wondering if the top of the line Sony D-NE920 sounds better than the 15 Mw per channel Sony D-NE330 out of the headphone out. Has anyone listened to both and been able to compare the sound? I will only be listening to the units through the headphone out. Can anyone help?

    What are the "must have" portable radios?

    What radios are famous for AM and FM selectivity, sensitivity, audio quality and reception? In all my research, there are some of the same models that always seem to come up: Sony 7600, Kaito KA 1103, Sangean DT 200v, Sangean 909, and others. If what one wanted was a pure communication...

    Side by side comparison: Sangean DT-200v and Sony srf-59

    I've seen th e180, it takes one AAA battery. The 200v uses 2 AA batteries. I'm thinking this means the 200v puts out more power, correct?

    Is a good, shortwave portable inherently better at picking up AM and FM stations?

    Hi. I'm wondering if a good shortwave portable radio is better at picking up AM and FM stations because of its circuitry and filters.

    Side by side comparison: Sangean DT-200v and Sony srf-59

    Thanks for the info, D-555. I've read that the Eton E5 was originally going to be the Degen DE-1106, but was purchased by Eton. With all due respect, I think I'd go with the E5, despite the higher price. I think I'd enjoy it more in the long run because of the more ergonomic features. Thanks for...
