A Sony Discman was the first way I heard the CD format in the 1980s, and the discman I had then was really very bad. After passing through a number of portable formats in the 90s and 21st century, I want to return to the redbook CD as my portable format of choice...so goes the merry go round! Being out of the discman market for so long, I am wondering if any manufacturers have produced an audiophile-level discman in the meantime. If you have any recommendations, please make them here.
I also use a D-EJ100. Sometimes with Sennheiser HD-600s or 580s. Although not as cool or convenient, I much prefer it to my wife's ipod nano. I do however like the earphones that came with the ipod, they really fit my ears well.
Mine has never skipped. Haven't listened to Sony's more expensive models. I was considering one of their models which offers a line out but didn;t really want to spend much $ on a feature that would probably go unused after initial trial. At the price of the D-EJ100 it's hard to go wrong.
