Fully restored and re-calibrated Sony D-7 (aka D-50 MkII) Discman with carrying case, with Sony AC-930A adapter, and with restored BP-200 rechargeable battery. Last few photos show how it spins Sketches of Spain off the battery, battery itself was restored using Ni-Cd cells, total battery power now is 2,000 mAh. AC-930A adapter also got its smoothing 2,200uF electrolytic upgraded to Nichicon audio-grade “Muse” cap. Further upgrade available by sending D-7 to my friend kaosuncd (kaosuncd. Com) to readjust D-7 power supply and to install Li-Ion cells into BP-200. Everything you have to know about Sony D-50 MkII is published here: hifinews. Com/content/sony-discman-d-50-mkii. Let me say it again: Hi-Fi News published a review on D-50MkII in September. Those who looked through my projects at. May have noticed that I own quite a few decent Discmans. My least loved one is D-50 but my favorite Discman is D-50 MkII. To my ears D-50 MkII sounds the best, and reading through. The start/stop nature of the pounding beats that form the bedrock of tracks like’Vanishing Point’ highlighted one of the player’s key virtues: there was not a hint of smearing or delay. One consequence of this type of presentation is that the player is forever grabbing your attention with various details of the music’s unfolding rhythms though this means that the D-50 MkII’s sound isn’t one which is easy to relax to. To me this proved to be the player’s main limitation. It is a fine companion when you really want to become involved with what you are listening to, but it can be a bit overpowering when you just want something to make soothing music in the background. This is also a pretty accurate description of my all-time favorite CD player, Naim CDS3 now. Restoration of D-50 MkII is rather challenging, and justifiable only by the end result. D-50 MkII shares this honor with Sony D-10, these two Sonys are mostly dead by now, extremely difficult to revive and, as a result, virtually impossible to hunt down. Functionally and cosmetically 10/10. Link gets removed by the SmartRobot… Just Google “hifi news sony d-50 mkII” and you get there :. The item “Sony D-7 Discman. Complete Set.
