Many years ago when they first come out !I didn't know that LG made any CD recorders.
I had one as well, no idea where it is now. I think I still have some of the discs somewhere unless they went with the last house move.I've still got my (25 year old) Philips CDR-870.
I think it was a very short term device like DAT and Mini disc we had no idea what was coming with ripping, iPods and thumb drives.My mate had a Yamaha CD recorder. It was fine as a recorder but instantly forgettable compared to standalone CDPs.
Yes, the Philips is nothing special as a player (unless going via an external DAC).My mate had a Yamaha CD recorder. It was fine as a recorder but instantly forgettable compared to standalone CDPs.
I get your point.I've never seen one of these before, but from skimming the manual, you need another CD player to be the input as it records to the CD in itself? That's madness. Especially at a time when most PCs and laptops had DVD drives. Simple bit of software would copy any audio CD easy.
Edit: now many PC's and laptop dont have DVD drives it could possibly be more successful now. I mean no one would buy it, obviously, but could still be more successful than first time round.
...and didn't they feel like a nice novelty?I had a Pioneer PD-R609 for a good while way back when.
I could be wrong but I seem to remember Yamaha produced two models, one that was just pure recorder and a more expensive version where you could edit recordings -- pretty sure Richer Sounds sold them both.Yes, the Philips is nothing special as a player (unless going via an external DAC).
Yamaha made a product that interested me.
It was a standalone CD recorder with a hard drive - so you could collect / edit before recording to CD.
Trouble was, it cost £1300....at a time when my DVD recorder cost £300 and that contains a HDD too.
I wrote to Hi-fi Choice mag, making the point that audio buyers were being severely ripped off compared to video buyers - they heartily agreed, made it letter of the month and bunged me a prize.
(Bet Yam didn't sell many of what looked like a nice device).
That's the £1300 ☹one that I wanted.....a more expensive version where you could edit recordings --
Crikey, talk about memory lane. My mate recorded a number of albums for me back in the 90s, some I still have - and they still work. He had the cheaper model and the recordings were decent.That's the £1300 ☹one that I wanted.
I remember their recorder. I still have the Traxdata discs that I made.I had a Traxdata one
Unless I'm missing the point on these completely I'm not sure why you'd want one today when a PC will probably do the same and moreI am looking at this at mo dont want a SH 1 .
Unless I'm missing a really major point here it's simply a CD player/recorder with a few tricks up its sleeve. What do you intend to do with it?Does your PC have the same sound has your HIFI ? How long will it take too transfer your music too play on your HIFI? And own it and keep it not a file.. I have a streamer but prefer too buy cds or Vinyl or even cassette. and still play it 20 years later .
As Wayne says above, a computer will do all that a CD recorder can, with no loss in quality.I am looking at this at mo dont want a SH 1 .
