Old Skool baby, not sure if that system would have made this group new retail but used and at today's value understand why it is here. I still use my Yamaha MDX-793 in my main rig, run it through my EAD DSP7000, had made a lot of great MD's before my last 301 gave up the ghost

Indeed. I too have a minidisc deck with my main (non-computerizef) rig: Technics SJ- MD100.

I use it weekly for playback and now and then for recording from various sources, mostly from CD's but occasionally I copy some vinyls and even compact cassettes.

That little Fuze looks excellent, is there any drawbacks to it?


for years that I've been using it, it's much better than my clip+ in terms of sound and performance, there are a couple of times during the firmware update (rockbox) where it will get stuck and the buttons won't respond to any clicks. matching it with nx1 for a couple of days since I got it opens the sound with more detail and clarity compared to the fuze-e11 combo.

Pretty happy with my new $55 portable!  Never been good with the pics, however...



I've reverted back to a Sansa Clip Zip recently, every so often I rediscover them again thinking what the hell am I doing here on this site spending money non stop getting no-where. I have DAPs like Studio V, DX50, FiiO X1 sitting in draws atm while I use my Sansa player with T-Peos H-300. I believe this combination (which is excellent synergy) is all one really needs. I will say not every IEM pairs so well as H-300, I believe because that hybrid is overly transparent.

Okay H20. Here's what you have to do now in order to keep from spending money again: Mail me your X50 for free and I'll promise that you'll be cured from this conduct. I swear to God.
