I got my D-NE715 about a year ago and since then it has served me ok but is nothing special. There are a few nagging issues I shall address later.
Sound Lets face it itís a Sony, the sound quality is very good, with Mega Base to get you jumping and AVLS (Automatic Volume Limiter System) which protects your lugs. Another feature is the G-shock, I know most players now have a very good anti skip system but the one on this player is great, I have never had it skip on me, even when I take is snowboarding! The earphones that come with the player are fairly standard Sony ones and unfortunately my ears seem to be a funny shape, which just doesnít agree with them, so I had to get new ones. Iím sure they work for most people though
ATRAC3plus ATRAC3plus (Adaptive Transform Acoustic Coding3plus) is an audio compression technology, developed from the ATRAC3 format. Though the ATRAC3plus format can compress music content to about 1/20 of its original size, you can still enjoy high quality sound. You can get about 30 CDís onto a CD-R/RW if your CDís are around 60 mins in length and your recording onto a 700MB CD-R/RW at 48kbps. This is pretty good and you can play audio CDís and mp3 CDís as well. The player displays the song name and artist. To make accessing your music easier, before you transfer to disc you can put your music into groups and files which you can access from the player, once itís on though you canít change it.
Other Features Shuffle/Repeat, programmable up to 64 tracks in your fave order, Jog dial to allow quick selection of tracks, connectable to your stereo
Batteries An important thing to consider when choosing your portable CD player (ie no external power source) is the batteries. And this is a real plus for this player the battery life is very good and charging doesnít take forever, you donít even need to take them out just plug the player in and press charge.
Looks I think this player looks pretty cool, after all I did buy it! It may not be everybodyís cup of tea though.
Ease of use Not bad here, could be better but once youíre used to it its ok.
Ok up to this point your probably thinking ďyeh this sounds like a pretty good playerĒ, however
Software I donít know what Sony was thinking here but SonicStage SIMPLE!! Burner, the software you use to make your ATRAC CDís, is one of the worst programmes Iíve used. It really has given me endless problems soÖ.
Is it worth it? Killing two birds with one stone is often a good thing to do, playing your audio CDís and having mp3 and large storage capabilities is a great idea but especially with the price, I donít think Sony have pulled it off with this player, I reckon you maybe better to go for a good mp3 player.
