Sony Disk Walkman

I dug out my old Sony D-NE711 and holy shit it still works
perfectly, 15 years old, just popped some AA batteries and a
CD in there and now I'm listening to Aleksi Perala.

Think I'll take it for a walk. I may even have a... CD
wallet...? around somewhere, so I can change up the chunes
on the go.

I barely touch physical media any more. It's interesting,
I'm burning a disk for the disk walkman and it makes you
think differently about the music. More consideration
involved than playing thousands of tracks on shuffle. Also
I'm digging out CDs I haven't played for years. Put on
Photek for my kid - he loved it.

Maybe I'll straight up become a physical media guy. Only
read books, listen to disks, buy a typewriter. Send letters
in envelopes. Wear a... hold on this is getting into fedora
territory

If your done with physical media. Recycle would like your
cds for car and home play and if you want to mail me a
letter, I'd like that

I found my old minidisc player/recorder in my parents loft
the other day with 4 minidiscs. one had a couple of live
improvs I must have done at some point, one had Rahzels MTM
2000 album on it and two were blank.

Bought it home with me to record stuff on. I'm very pleased.

Minidisk! I've been out-retro-cooled!

When I was buying this CD player the salesman was trying to
get me to buy a minidisk. He had a cool model that had some
kind of optical data transfer. Damn.

i love my old minidisk recorder, plug in some binaural mics
and you can get great field recordings. dunno if you can
even buy blanks for it though, i was just overwriting the
same one ad infinitum

I checked out of curiosity and amazon has blanks. Wonder if
they're still being manufactured or if it's old stock.

not a walkman.

only the true cassette one

it says walkman probably purely for commercial reasons, to
ride the wave of the success of the cassette one.

capish?

Early portable Sony CD players were called a Discman to
avoid confusion. Once the tape became truly obsolete it was
referred to as a Walkman.

i should clarify and say that around here around that time
everybody called the cassette one walkman, and the cd player
cd player when it came out, the walkman terminology was not
adopted by the people.

Mo_ your turning into a grumpy Jivverdicker (rip) take some
time off, go outside with your walkman and enjoy life
outside the Internet.

I don't care if you go to watmm. I like it there but I'm not
paying to post there

My minidisc player also has the Walkman branding on it. Eat
that, mohamed.

I also had a Sony tape walkman, with which I would listen to
“Ill communication” on repeat on the way to school.

“Every morning I took the train to the high street
station

Doing homework on the train, what a fucked up sitation”

I guess that made me feel badass, though I was a scrawny
little kid with pimples.

with earbuds and assumed they had phones or ipods - I was
smiling with a great heavy round dirty secret in my hoodie

Exactly, it feels like walking around with an Edison
cylinder.

I lost my beloved little ipod shuffle and they don't make
them any more. Can anyone suggest a music player that isn't
a phone or an ipod touch? ideally something smaller than a
cd walkman lol
