Yesterday I had arthroscopic knee surgery and I was looking forward to it in order to clear our some torn cartilage and also to give me some quiet time to listen to some tunes. I also wanted to give a closer listen to my new JMT META42, so far I had loved it with my big rig (Goldmund CDP, DH Labs Interconnects, Etyomotic ER-4Ps or Senns HD580), but since I’d be in bed, I wanted to run it with my portable rig.
While the bottle of pain killers took care of my knee, I need help with the pain caused by my PCDP. My set up is a Panasonic SL-S255C, Twisted Pair Mini-RCA, the META & the Senns HD580s. Can anyone recommend a decent PCDP? I used the current one traveling & it didn’t bother me as much, but with the dedicated listening I’ve been doing, its flaws are very apparent.
Here’s what I’m looking for:
•Decent battery life (5-10 hr., minimum)
•Most importantly, good sound
I realize that a PCDP is never going to replace my home rig, but something has to be better. I’ve seen some great reviews for older players (the Optimus 3400 comes to mind), but they seem hard to find. Any newer models come close? Or any source for some of these old tanks?
Now where is that good looking nurse with my medication?
I've been using a Sony D-EJ915. The line out sounds incredible, better than any other CD player I've heard (I like it better than the sound of the Panasonic 570. Never heard the classic Sonys). It gets great battery life, and it's very small and looks cool.
I've got an extraone that I'm looking to sell. I think it would fit what you're looking for. You can check my ad under the For Sale/Trade forum.
