Advantages Atrac capability, battery life
Disadvantages poor software and value for money
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
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 CD’s onto a CD-R/RW if your CD’s 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 CD’s and mp3 CD’s 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 it’s on though you can’t change it.
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 doesn’t take forever, you don’t even need to take them out just plug the player in and press charge.
Ease of use
Not bad here, could be better but once you’re used to it its ok.
Ok up to this point your probably thinking “yeh this sounds like a pretty good player”, howeverSoftware
Is it worth it? Killing two birds with one stone is often a good thing to do, playing your audio CD’s and having mp3 and large storage capabilities is a great idea but especially with the price, I don’t think Sony have pulled it off with this player, I reckon you maybe better to go for a good mp3 player.Thanks for reading
