A week or so ago, there was a thread in general talk forum regarding an mp3 player that was essentially an audio cassette. Well, someone found the Digisette, Duo-Aria featured here http://www.soundandvisionmag.com/ar...ryZ73839QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

The company originally designed and manufactured this product hoping to cash in on the audio book market, unfortunately, that market never really took off like they had hoped but there's an awful lot of pre 03 HD's that could really make use of the player. True I actually only replaced another player with this and there was nothing wrong with my ther player at all but by using this, I don't have to change the plug when I wanna switch from XM to mp3 which I always had to do before, not a function I could do while riding down the road cuz of the way I have em configured....

Now when the new xm comes out with the tivo/mp3 record function I'll be set.....

Thanks Adlerx, bought one from him. Don't know if it's exactly what I wanted but for $32.00 I'll take a change. Will just have to see if this does the trick.

Will give it the extreme test.

Thanks again for the heads up.

.......The battery is quite propriatary, I have looked all over the internet for spares(digisette want's $20!) and I could only find em in 1 place but cheap enough anyhow at $5 apiece. .......
Adlerx do you have a link for the place you found for the batteries? If this works out like I think it's going to I'm going to pick up a couple extra batteries. One in the unit and another in the saddle bag charging.

FYI, I contacted the fellow that has 'em on eBay and am trying to work a good deal on a dozen of the units. I've already been told by 3 guys that want a unit. And I'll tell you right now that anybody that is riding a '02 bagger or older should be interested. $$$$$$ :whisper: Don't tell HD or they'll grab 'em, put an HD logo on 'em and sell 'em for $100.00.

Thanks again....

Here it is, Think I'll get a few, no extraa S&H for multiples...

When this thing came out in 2001, it retailed for $279!!! It is an awfully impressive looking package, really complete with accessories, we'll see how it holds up...
So, do you have a outlet in your tour pack? I never thought of that, great idea, think I'll add one! Do ultras come with that stock or did you add?

Just talked to the people and they indicated these units were discontinued and like you said they were expensive a couple years ago.

I have a lighter outlet fabricated to hook into the pigtail for my heated gear on my Ultra. Can plug this or my phone charger into it. Also use it for my camera battery charger. Works great and even works when the bike is off because it's wired directly to the battery. I just hook it up and let it ride in the saddle bag. Matter of fact I've become the mobil phone charger for all my so called buddies when we're traveling.

Just bought one, thanks for the heads-up. I didn't want to get a new radio to play digital music. Thanks!

WoW!!! Got mine today. NICE!! Can't try it out right now because I have the fairing and such off the bagger. But am going to put it back together when I get back from the swapmeet at McCormick Place in Chicago this weekend.

I got a PM from a friend/member on another board that told me he got one about 6 months ago and it was JUST what I was looking for. I talked to a couple other friends and long story short I ordered 4 more for them. They should be here Monday.

If all don't come thru I might have a couple for sale in the classified section next week.

Again adlerx thanks for the heads up and say, send me that battery link again.

Looks Like I missed the boat on this one. The e-bay store has been closed! I would have picked up one of these for my 1990 FLHTCU!

Don't panic Fish.....like I posted earlier, I ordered 4 for friends, 2 without telling 'em so I might have a couple that I'm going to post in the classified here. Looks like one for sure.

Wow this digisette looks great.
I was considering buying an ipod, but this looks like a much cheaper, and simpler option for my 1990 ElectraglideClassic.

Has anyone put in some time in the saddle with one of these yet?
Let us know how its working out.

Cheers
DJ.

WoW!! Works great!

Got the bagger out today and loaded the Duo-Aria cassette with about 35 songs, MP3 and WMA formats, and put another 65 on a 128MB SD card. Worked like a charm, I mean like a charm. :banana: Did find out one thing, you have to put you radio on "seek" to get it to work properly jumping between songs. If you don't put it to "seek" it sounds like it rewinding/fast forwarding just like a real cassette tape and never finds the songs. But when you put it to "seek" it jumps to the next song using the radio controls on the right handlebar control.

Now I'm trying to decide whether or not to pull the $300.00 HD MP3 handlebar play off my bike or just leave it. I've got more than one post here so guess I could put it in the classified section without getting too much grief from the guys. LoL!!

I'm impressed!!!:Banadance

Hey, Texan, where did you get the 128MB card? I think I'm gonna need one too. Haven't tried it out yet, still loading up songs. Found out it doesn't take too long to fill up the 64MB.

The 128MB card I have came with a camera I bought a couple years ago. I've seen 'em at Best Buy and they had 'em at Circuit City. Was over there this mor'n picking up a 2G for my jump drive at Circuit City for $80.00. Also, have also seen a bunch of 'em on eBay for around $20.00.

Jerry, be sure and put your radio on "seek"....I was very frustrated last night until I figured that out.

I just placed a bid for one on eBay the 96mb model. Its expandable memory. I wonder if you can put a 512mb SD Card in it and still work?

Hey, Renegade, if you don't get one let me know. I picked up 4 more of the Model 264 from a fellow that was sell'n on another board. Will drop one in the mail to ya. Was in Lubbock this weekend if I'd only known.

I've tested these everyway but upside down. They work great!!

As far as a 512MB working, yesterday I picked up a 2GB at Circuit City. Am going to see if it reconigizes it tonight. Oh, by the way, you need to use the DuoManager program that comes with the units to format the SD card...the units I have would not see the card without that format.

Jerry, found a place where you can purchase replacement/extra batteries for $5.00 each. The place is MDS Battery. I ordered 2 xtras this mor'n. Don't know if this was the place adlerx was talking about or not.

i have an AR 496, and an SD card would be a FORCE fit into the slot--it was designed for MMC (similar form factor, but slightly thinner). Have people been able to get the SD cards to fit, and if so was it a force?

Thanks

No, don't think that would be a good idea, forcing it that is. I use MMC cards and they, like you say, are thinner than the standard SD card. Forcing is not a good option.
