Knucks, the risk of visiting the Dr (even the eye one) with even the most basic of precautions is extremely minimal. If you're two weeks post the first jab you've got ~80% immunity and the Dr's office is probably fully vax'd.
Same here. Had a couple ATRAC players, both shown in the video. Loved the size, sound, and physicality of it. Strangely rejected someone giving me their MD player about a decade ago. That was a mistake. Still miss my MZ-R70.
Moved to the 6GB Creative NOMAD Jukebox. Then seemingly downgraded to a shiny 5GB Apple iPod. I've never wanted anything as quickly as I did that 1G iPod. Even switched my operating system to support it. Nothing seemed as... is beautiful the right word?...until the 1G iPhone. But the Sony MDs were no doubt beautiful too. I won't comment on the Nomad.
Anyway, Sony and portable audio always reminds of the article The Civil War Inside Sony
