The Sony Discman D-25
An Excellent Portable Sony Discman.. and Very Collectible!
The Sony D-25 is a beautiful Discman from 1989. Not only is the styling great with a metal case, but the sound is terrific quality too. It uses 4-times oversampling. The music quality rivals some home audiophile CD players!
Some say that the sound of the D-25 is even better than the even more sought after the legendary D-555!
If you are a collector of classic or retro Sony audio equipment, then the Sony D-25 is a must have. Just scroll down for a chance to buy one today!

Sony Discman D-25 - Snag a deal on Ebay ~ These are very hard to find!
Typical selling price for a WORKING D-25 is between $100-$225+ depending on accessories and condition. The remote control is a very rare accessory and often increases the selling price dramatically! Having the original box is also a big plus.
About the AC Power Adapter & Battery
The original battery (the BP-2EX) is often dead by now. Buy a replacement battery here.
If you would rather use an AC power adapter, you'll need one that produces 9 volts DC and about 600 mA.
The polarity is negative, which means that the center should be negative, as seen in this picture.
Original AC Adapter -
Model # AC-940 or AC-930

What's the difference between these 2 units? Is the sound better or worse than my Optimus 3400? Thanks!
