    I had several, and also the MZ-RH1, the last of a generation. Boy was that thing pretty, with its spectrum visualization. But it couldn't compete against unlimited streamable music from Google Music or your own storage streaming (airsonic). It just was a different generation, and the badly needed changes arrived too little too late. Very much Sony way of doing things.

    Yes, Sony were way too arrogant back then.
    They are better (but still not perfect) today though.. At least they have adopted Micro-SD for storage and play nicely with FLAC, MP3 etc

    My Sony TV is slightly picky in the video formats it wants to play, but I can live with it..

    Owned an early Sony MP3 player. That thing was so-hobbles in an effort to protect their intellectual property that it painted itself into a corner . . . and then the ipod took over the world.

    Exactly, one would think Sony would have learnt from the Betamax days ... but no...

    what's wrong with retro tech, i have a 1987 video game console with even a sealed 1987 game but it ain't worth much, my hifi in storage is a 1998 Marantz CD player CD-67 SE and Marantz Amp PM66SE with tannoy M1 speakers at my parent's place in sha tau kok, the cd player has had a new cd lens fitted 5 years ago.
