Music on the move

Unread post by karatestu » Sat Jul 13, 2019 7:35 pm

Does anyone still use personal cd players like the Sony Discman ?

I fancy getting a 2nd hand one. Some canbe bought for less than £20. Yes i know its old fashioned but thats just me, yet to embrace file based audio. And i dont have a smart phone just a £17 nokia pay as you go.

Vinyl in your living room is one thing.

But a smart phone and Spotify is the way to go on the move.

Get a smart phone- can be great for Hi-Fi- adds to my listening experience at home and in the car- streaming Radio Paradise / Spotify to the headunit gives amazing in car sound quality

I sold mine some years ago. I only use a smart phone for playing music at home and on the move. My mobile phone is of the old type and pay as you go. Never seen the need for a contract.

I hate all things computers. Smartphones are just tiny computers. I have been battling the urge to get one.

Need to listen to songs i am learning for the wedding band i have joined and streaming spotify is no good for that.

Yes i am a cave man.

Why is Spotify no good for listening to wedding songs

Nothing wrong with old technology in its place, its just a smart phone is simply better in every way
