    the power supply is sorted as of today, i hope. maplin electrionics came to the rescue and were very helpful.

    just have to wait and see if it works when it arrives.

    perhaps, just post a visible message here once something has been finalized, so people who bought one from you can buy one if they wish.




    Quaddy,

    Got it. Also please report back on your PS and battery.

    Cheers,

    Ken

    Ok as promised here is a glimmer of hope for especially UK owners of the D25/S

    Battery - Akku für Sony BP-2X BP-2EX CCD-VX1E - 19.90 EUROS + 6.00 EUROS P+P = 25.90 EUROS (approx £19.50 all in)

    let me first preface this regarding the battery;
    Yes, you can do a google search for 'sony BP-2X' or similar keywords, and it will return seemingly bonifide results to stores and ebay shops (which end up being the ebay shop fronts of the actual uk battery companies also had issues with) in the UK which have them down as being in stock and available. let me warn against this if i may, having now ordered no less that from 4 of these stores (battery firms in the uk) and ebay shops listing it, they ALL take your money, dont contact you until you contact them, then they all tell you its out of stock.

    I personally dont believe it, i think this an old product, an abscure product that they simply still have on their database and are too lazy to remove!

    This battery and the UK dont mix - trust me.

    Power Supply - 12V DC 400mA Fixed Voltage Regulated Mains Adaptor - £9.99 + £2.98 P+P = £12.97

    I hope this helps at least one person having issues sourcing the basic parts needed to operate this costly, but beautiful player!

    Will the currently included power supply (Panasonic) charge the BP-2X?

    Thanks.

    CD-R disks aren't a problem for the D-25 and other vintage PCDPs. If it can't read the cd-r, either the laser lens needs cleaning or it's focus adjusted.

    Using a step-up trnasformer to connect the unit in HK with the US adaptor, works ok

    I am an avid headphone listener as a result of being an Easterner working for a West Coast company. Actually am about to take out my AKG701s as well. Later will connect my Tomahawk through the line out. This could be the kind of thing where you take out all your favorite CDs, and become reacquainted. Map of the World Metheny was incredibly layered three dimensionally on the Grados. Blew away the lossless transfer on my IPod. Quick, you better get to Ken before it is too late.

    I was using mine not amped only using the headphone out last night, not bad for a stock headphone out. I will have the SLA Power Box at the CanJam show running a D25s if anyone wants to hear what they sound like on a clean power supply.
