im going to hawaii in feb, and instead of taking all my cds i was thinking about getting an mp3 player. I was looking at a few and i just wanted to know what ones all you guys have and if you like them and whats good and bad about them!!!
In my opinin, iPods are the best. I dun have one though :-( there like $200 and up depending on how big of a hard drive u want. The cheapest one has a 5GB hard drive and that can hold like 2000 songs!!! U should definitly get one if ya got the money $bling bling$
I own a few smsung mp3 players. They are affordable and small. Plus they have remotes and etc.. Great thing is they arnt over priced and smc's are pretty cheap. If not get one of those MP3 cd players. Those are a good deal. I just don't reccoment the Ipod to anyone its a waste of money.
i was just checking out MD's on cnet and they have Sony Net MD MZ-N1 as a 7/10 and they said the downfall is = The bad: Copyright-protection technology slows down transfers and consumes disk space; can't upload recordings via USB; expensive.
The bottom line: Sony's software drags down an otherwise fine product... they say its slow to transfer? idk i maybe just confused
with an mp3 player you digitally transfer data to the memory on the device, where-as with a mini-disc you use an audio input to record sound rather than data.
with the new net-md's its possible to do both (i think) where by you can record audio to the MD and transfer mp3's to it via the software ... either way the end result is Music on a disc which you can listen to on the move.
Comparatively, the Sony's have lower quality sound output. (not my opinion www.minidisc.org for the tests etc)
Get a Sharp as they are very reliable and very damned stylish. They also have NetMD feature but mp3 is a lossy format. You're going from one lossy format to another. You should record from a CD preferably. Utilise the Optical in on your MD and record from your DVD player or your PC if you have an optical out plug.
Minidisc is so much more versatile than mp3's. You can also do Analogue recording to your MD and as long as you are recording from a quality source its fairly hard to distinguish between an optical (digital) and a analogue recording.
