Some personal notes…
The 20th Year Sony Walkman Anniversary series can be barely compared with other Walkmen. This is NOT a novelty product, or something that will be stored away after the nostalgia attack has vanished. This is a wonderful piece of technology that produces an incredibly powerful and clean sound.
I must admit that I was initially skeptical about the digital controls and the display, but soon its warm and clear (full) analogue sound conquered me. It is simply the best of the analogue and digital worlds combined.
You can select tracks similarly like you would with a CD or MP3 player. It can also skip automatically the silence that often is found at the beginning or at the end of a cassette. It has a built-in Dolby noise reduction. There is a remote control. And it still produces the analogue sound that you are looking for.
It is one of the slimmest and lightest Walkmen you’ll ever find around because it only runs with a single battery and, somehow, it will also last for a very long time before needing to re-charge it (yes, its battery is rechargeable!).
If you are looking for a portable player that is super compact, robust and lightweight, you are in the right place. If you are serious about cassettes and you want something that will stay with you for years, or, perhaps, even for the rest of your life, this is the way to go.
There are some few scuffs on the outer shell, but this player is in fantastic working condition, and it comes with the full original Sony kit, which is really hard to find.
PRICE INCLUDES THE WAKE UP EARLY CASSETTE!
