Out of the 3 you list, the only one I have owned is the DD The DD is superb Much better resolution BUT is it really worth the difference Depends also by the headphones and music you use. Maybe better DD But the electronic design is a bit better in DD3. About central gear, I restore with original nylon segment, is the best solution IMO, as more silent and extremely resistant.
Is also original, if that counts. Cheers Sergiu. It has a revised hinge and lid catch. The older DDs have a very thin ring on the corners where it is screwed in. However, The head is a cheaper permalloy on the DD I have units with the new replacement gears and one with teeth added, but I have not tried the Chinese gears yet.

The F5 is can also be cheaper I got one cheap it just needed gear sorted so off it went to Magneticblood and all lush now I find the radio useful also as when battery too low for tape it still enough for radio to work.
Here is mine Here's Sony's late model DD redesigned center gear. These should last for ever. On the negative end, tucked against the wall facing the supply real hub. Haha, cool, but not really a DD model. I am not sure will fit in a DD, also. Plistic is slightly diffrrent Cheers Sergiu. The gear shown by vinylcafe was the first gear model used on the first productions of the WM It can be used on the WM-DDs but it is necessary to reduce the thickness of the magnetic gear, making sure that the thickness is reduced in a perfectly leveled way.
However, this also involves a reduction of the frictional force, which depends on the strength of the magnet, but will still remain sufficient to carry out its work.

Sony DD models. User Name. Remember Me? Externally there were very few changes like the plastic volume control , but internally there were some, as you can read in this article at Walkman Central. I have only the silver and red ones. It is known for being one of the best tape players ever made.

This it not a joke, and I can now say it after having my unit serviced and fine-tuned by the extraordinay Dr Walkman. You can find more information about my D6C in this interesting article. The next significant improvement came with DD30, that has MegaBass. But I'm not interested in that model, because it doesn't feature anything interesant.
The DD30 is one of my favorite walkmans of all, specially for its sound, because I find the megabass excellent on the mid position: the newer models have a weak 'mid' position and excesive 'max' position. After the DD30 came the DD33, which has almost the same features but a new design that conserves the main lines but with a rounded, modern design:.
