    well,

    i'm in need of a new walkman and i just realized that i can't stand the ole crappy cassetes anymore... the question is:

    should i go for a MD or a CD???

    i'll use it for sports mainly... so i'm tending to go for a MD, any other points/sugestions???

    if the MD tech wins... does anyone have any tips on the SONY MZ-R37 ($175) or on the SONY MZ-R90 ($310 [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] )???

    thanks guys!!!

    If you're gonna use it for playing sports, MD won't work that well. Lot's of people say that you can move them around quite a bit, and you can, but they still skip if you give them several shakes in a row. I can't jog with mine.

    The MP3 players are nice. I picked up a Nomad II a few months ago, and have had good luck with it. SmartMedia cards are down to $33USD for 64mb, which isn't bad at all. If you're going to be moving while listening, this is the way to go.

    MD can be a bit more versatile, and are far better for recording right now than the MP3 players are.

    I'd not bother with getting a CD player. What's the use?

    Better than a CD player, but it'll still frustrate you when your moving. It takes a bit of work to get the tunes onto the MD player if you don't have a CD player with an optical-out jack.

    Hey uncle ted, whazzup? Haven't heard of you for quite a while. I have a MD but I don't use it for sports. I think it works fine for biking and weight lifting, and it's smaller than a CD player.

    BTW, how is it possible to jog with phones in the ears? I tried it once, but I couldn't keep those goddamn earplugs in the ears... [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Well, I'm finished with school. I didn't use the "afterburner", though, I was as lazy as I always was [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img].

    I haven't been trading for quite a long time, I was happy with the shows I've got so far and there are many opportunities to download shows off the net (got myself cable...yunkkk [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]).
