When the TPS-L2 (see my review here) was released on 1979-07-01, SONY still had not invented the ‘Walkman’ brand. In the first months they preferred to sell it under three different names: Freestyle in Sweden, Stowaway in the UK, and Soundabout in the US. But they quickly realized that that was not a good idea. They […]

I received at home my old beloved boombox that I’ve had when I was a teen: the AIWA CSD-SR6. I bought this boombox back in 1991, just before I started studying in the university. I’ve had a nice Hitachi 3DS75 and I really was searching for a big -but still portable- improvement. And I found this […]

I’ve received recently a tape that surprised me too much. Apparently, there’s nothing strange outside: but when I opened the case I found such a rare print inside the j-card: Make no mistakes, this is not a sticker or a crop from a magazine that the previous owner has put inside. It is PRINTED directly in the paper […]

I want to share with you something that I found interesting. User ‘Vince666‘ from Tapeheads has built an interesting CD for performing deck calibration. If you have a good 3-head deck and you like to do good recordings, you probably know that adjusting bias for a particular type of tape is a must. Some advanced and […]

It is very common to hear bad critizism to the MP3 format in audiophile circles, specially in analog audio circles. I have a quite big collection of mp3 music and I think a have quite good knowledge about the format and how to build good mp3 files. I’ve heard bad, very bad, good and excellent […]

I have just published a complete guide showing how to properly record music on to a cassette from digital sources (like MP3, Spotify…) with good quality. All presented step-by-step, aimed for newbies that want to learn the entire process starting from zero knowledge.   The complete guide to make good recordings (on cassette) I hope […]

I saw Guardians of the Galaxy this summer. I was curious to see a walkman in a modern Hollywood movie, and I can say I enjoyed the movie, as well as the walkman and the tape that can be seen in it. In this movie, a walkman and a mixtape plays a special role. NOTE: […]

I’ve been lucky to have one of the best boomboxes at home for some days recently. A good friend, Mankamaz, bought this treasure and sent it to restore (put new belts, etc…) and then it came home. I took it a few photos quickly. Not the same way I usually do by deep cleaning it, […]

This is the boombox I’ve had from ’87 to ’92 (more or less): the Hitachi TRK-3D75E. I’ve had to “fight” considerably with my parents until I convinced them that I really didn’t want any cheap or budget boombox. I really need a decent one, with a lot more features than the average, like and 5-band EQ […]
