Product Description

For the ultimate in features and style, it has to be Sony's flagship ATRAC model, the D-NE1. Featuring the same sleek complete circular design as the D-NE715, the D-NE1 also includes a rechargeable battery and charging cradle as well as optical digital out. The supplied battery will give you a very respectable 55 hours playback. But put in 2x AA alkaline batteries and you can enjoy non-stop audio entertainment for up to 150 hours.

Included with every ATRAC/MP3 CD Walkman is the SonicStage CD Simple Burner software that allows you to take advantage of ATRAC3plus, Sony's proprietary music-compression technology when making custom MP3 CDs on a computer. ATRAC3plus compression lets you store up to 30 CDs on one single CD-R for playback on any ATRAC/MP3 player including the stylish D-NE1.

The player includes Sony's popular Jog Dial control for easy folder navigation, a two-line dot-matrix display. Skip-Free G-Protection technology boosts the laser pickup's shock protection to minimise read errors that would otherwise interrupt your music, providing quick recovery from both horizontal and vertical shocks. Bookmark playback lets you program favourite songs from multiple CDs and play them back at the touch of a button. CD Text support displays artist and title information with compatible commercial audio CDs.

I am very happy with this CD player. I was a bit put off by the price to start off with but i suppose quality does come at an expense. And well on that basis this is a bargain!. I have absolutly no faults with the CD player because it is excellent. Much better than the shitty Dionner somthing or other i had before. THe battery life is just incredible - had it on the lithium batterys for 2 days non stop, unrecharged and theres still lots of life left in the battery. Also it looks ALOT thinner than it does on the picture and its very light and fits very well in your pocket aswell. My only nag is that you cant use the software on 98 or lower , ONLY 2000 and XP which nobody had said but thats no problem because i was going to get XP at the weekend anyway. So i havent tryed the ATRAC thingy as yet but i am still very very impressed with it. CAnt see wot the idiots are on about complaining about the volume levels, its fine and keeps its quality even at max, but thats probably just the headphones - not the tacky ,cheap , crappy ones that came with it. anyway basically i think this is excellantay and would definitly recomend it to anyone

Where to begin? I stumbled across this product whilst playing around one evening on the amazon site. I never knew such things existed. I have owned a Sony Discman for about 9 years and have never had a problem - except the batteries give out after about 80 mins(rechargables and throwaways)and you are resticted to one disc at a time - a real pain when on the move and the slightest movement makes it jump all over the place.
This product caught my eye. Was it possible to condense so much music on one disc and be able to play it for hours on end whilst jogging etc? I read all the reviews on this site and decided to take the plunge! Wow! I ordered it on a Thursday at 1300 hrs and it came on the next day at 0930 hrs.
The software was extremely easy to install. The program is simplicity itself. I asumed that you needed to play the entire CD in order to download - no, just insert, select and transfer, then repeat the process until you are ready to burn your CD-R. So simple and quick. I downloaded my entire Rainbow collection in about 10 mins and put it in the machine with trepadation. I need not have worried. The quality was out of this world. Why people say otherwise I don't know. Also why do they complain about the volume? I like to listen to hard rock and the Discman is certainly up to that.
I also bought a Sony Belt case - essential to get the best use out this brilliant product. Would I recommend it? You bet I would! Expensive it may be but hey life's short enough.

Well, where to start? Quick delivery as usual by Amazon, with free CDs and satchel as well.
Firstly, the software is very easy to use. Just select MP3s from your computer and convert to ATRAC if you want (takes a while though!). Note that you can't edit the files after you burn them, even with a CD-RW, because they're gobbledegook on the CD, unlike MP3s. That said, I just burned a CD with 317 tracks (count 'em) which almost fills the CD!
As far as the design goes, well, it's a beaut. You can see the CD spinning (or not: it has 8MB of memory so spins up a whole song at a time!) through the window at the edge; the buttons on the unit are discreet but nice; and the charging stand is largely superfluous, but still nice to display it :-)
The sound quality is fantastic, though I dumped the supplied earbuds straightaway. I find that the volume is plenty loud enough; I wonder whether the previous correspondents either had the AVLS system set to "Limit" or were using the supplied earbuds which (I imagine) aren't that powerful.
Navigation is very easy on the remote with group/album skip buttons (forwards and backwards) as well as a jog-button for FF/RW and skipping tracks. Other buttons let you change the display (using tags imported from MP3) to show title and time elapsed; artist/bitrate and time remaining; or album (the name of the group it's in). When playing Audio CDs the first two are the same but the third display is the total remaining time. You can also change the play mode from standard to folder to single track to shuffle to shuffle within folder to Bookmarks (you can bookmark a song as you listen to it) to playlist (MP3 only, .m3u files) to PGM mode which plays tracks in your favourite order (a playlist on the fly as it were, can be up to 64 tracks long).

This discman plays anything you throw at it. Mp3s, ATRAC copied cds etc. Don't be put off by people criticising its output either. I've tried this with different headphones over the years (ears) and I've found varying results which leads me to believe that its not the discman but the headphones themselves!
ATRAC means you can burn up to around 30 cds on a single cd and listen on your discman. The discman sticks the whole song into its mwemory before playing it so it doesn't spin the cd continuously. This is great mainly because it saves your battery life by a lot. There is hardly any loss of quality when you burn to ATRAC. It is by far a better compression than MP3. It isn't well supported through so you're stuck when you want to play it on your friend's JVC CD player. The sofware you get from Sony to burn ATRAC is a bit shoddy though. You have to compile the cd all in one session because you can't save the sessions. This also means that if you want to make a multiple of the same cds, you have to go through the whole process again!!! This is poor! You can ignore ATRAC though and burn an MP3 cd if you wanted to and this will play on D-NE1.
Beautiful design but this means that it can get spoiled easily. Mine have scratches on the lid which is easy to do...
