Once I received my ‘Super-DC2′ from Dr Walkman recently, I had the idea to start a series of videos showing the real difference between some walkmans and other players, like I did with the turntable versus CD. In this video you can hear the real difference between a CD played in a good Discman versus […]

I’ve always wondered about this eye-catching boombox. I still remember it from the catalogs of the early 90s. I guess it was one of few models that show signs of design based on angles and straight lines and both the ‘egg’ design that become the facto-standard from late 90 and on. I specially like its […]

Some years ago I knew about a guy that seemed to me that knew very well how to service a walkman. He is known as ‘Dr Walkman‘. It was actually in Stereo2go forum where I met him. I contacted him personally and wanted him to service and upgrade my D6C to make some sort of ‘Super-D6C’. I was […]

Your walkman can be excellent as a source but a wrong headphone can make you hear not-so-good (or actually bad) sound. So, which ones are better? Don’t miss my latest […]

Just for the time when cassettes will become extremely rare and/or expensive, I’ve started searching for brand new ones some years ago. They are increasingly becoming expensive and rare, specially those good ones. It’s not rare to see many at 3-6 euros per unit today. I have quite a big reserve at this moment, and […]

I want to share with you my experience with Alex Nikitin, the technician from A.N.T. Audio in the UK. I wanted a Pioneer CT-F1250 since some time ago, but knowing that it’s a rather old deck I knew that it would need a definitely good servicing, so I consider sending to him. In fact, after founding one […]

Since I was a teen I loved small HI-Fis. As many other teens, money didn’t let me go as far as to have a boombox (an excellent one, though). But I kept dreaming… There are lots of choices if you search for a standard factor equipment, but very very few if you look for mini-sized […]

I have recently acquired an impressive Pioneer RT-909 reel to reel. As it’s a 30 year-old machine, it needed a complete check and servicing as you may guess. Here’s how it arrived. Not full of dust, but definitely dirty: The rollers were also disintegrated: And this is how the heads looked like. Full of dust […]
