Moved to the Featured section: Brushed metal walkmans: some of the most rare and stylish
I have recently acquired one of those rare beauties in the boombox history: the Panasonic RX-DT9. This beast was the top-of-the-line model in this brand’s history, the most advanced and powerful (well, behind the RX-A2 monster). It’s so advanced that it can compete with many mini-HIFIs and it probably sounds better and has a lot […]
To share eaily all my walkmans and other gadgets in my collection, I’ve created a new page where you can see my walkman collection. You can filter to see a particular line of walkmans, a year of manufacturing or a line (like DD or EX). At this moment there are just a few, but I’ll […]
If you like vinyls I think you’ll like this video. It shows a rare Thriller picture disc on my also rare Technics SL1200 Limited Edition. I hope you enjoy it.
The Technics SL1200 is a world-wide standard in turntables. When it appeared in 1972 it was so shocking advanced that made all the competition to look outdated. With its heavy mass (12Kg), a direct-drive mechanism with very high torque (that makes the platter reach its speed in just 0.7 seconds), a quartz locked phase control […]
Guys at Mentalfloss.com have published an interesting article about the story of the Walkman. They have contacted me to ask for some photos and I was happy to collaborate. A very worth read indeed! Hope you enjoy it.
Back in december ’14 I was contacted by a guy who said he works on the catalog of the ‘Crutchfield Corporation‘. I’ve had no idea what was that, I confess. In my country, Spain, we never have seen such catalog. For all of you that also don’t know it, it’s a catalog of audio equipment from an on-line store. […]
I’ve recently added to my collection a very interesting set of quite old SONY tapes. According to the vintage cassette website, they are from 1978-1981 years. I still remember when I first got attracted by music and cassettes, back in those years when I was about 8 years old, my father had those red […]
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 […]
It’s so curious how they have changed Seen here: http://pinterest.com/pin/123708320985895903/
