Hello,


I'm currently running a Sony pcdp D-EJ616CK-->Cheapo mini-->Altoid Cha-47-->Senn 580/stock cable. Just how much of a difference can I expect with the Markertek mini?

I think the Markertek mini would be an improvement. Hard to gauge the amount of 'improvement' to expect. Though I think you may be limited by your source.

Unfortunetly, that sony pcdp will be my only source for now. I'm trying to hold out and see if some of the new mp3/pcdp's will have decent line out's. However, I'm always in the pawn shops looking for that nice old Sony

Hi Jodiuh,

I just made an asumption that the your sony didn't have a line out. A line out would definately improve the sound. Along with a good cable. You may want to hold off on the cable until you do get a better source.

Yeah, the headphone out cannot compare to it's line out. I already ordered the cable. It will be here on Wednesday. I'm going to visit my Bro in Arizona and he's got the Sony J01 mp3 player pdcp. I'm going to compare that to an iriver and decide further. I'm just trying to get a heads up
Thanks for your comments!

Just got my Markertek mini and already I can tell that the sound is more open and pronounced. I take it the cable will need a bit of burn in too? I also decided to make a "burn-in" cd. There's about 18 tracks. The first 6 are some low bass test/songs, then some Celine Dion, Goo Goo Dolls, etc., and finally some classical. I really like the way the cd came out.

I'll let you know how it turns out for me
