Its stock performance is nothing special, but what makes this particular one special is that it has been deeply upgraded by ANT Audio. The increase in performance is so high that they state that it can sound better than a Nakamichi Dragon, which is […]

Recently my friend TJ Autoreverse showed me a bunch of very interesting cassettes that he has bought on an UK online store. I’ve never seen something like that and I found them really catchy. There were coloured, fluorescent, reel and even chromed cassettes in the lot: But… if I had to choose the most impressive […]

After some time without publishing anything about walkmans, I’m back with some news: I have recently acquired which is probably the smallest walkman ever made: the SONY WM-R707. This model has the same external size as the mythical WM-701C but with the addition of a recording circuit in the same form factor (which is an […]

There is a group of enthusiasts at Tapeheads that enjoy making mixtapes and ship through the world to others members. I enjoyed watching and reading their experiences and could not stop myself joining the group. I wanted to make mixtapes for others too and swap with friends in other countries. Miles quickly replied me and offered to send […]

I’m excited to share you a story of passion and bravery. Passion for cassettes, walkmans and music. Bravery for wanting to do something that he never did before: being a DJ but with cassettes and walkmans. That’s what my friend Lorenzo , which is now called ‘TJ Autoreverse’, (TJ as Tape Jockey) did. Considering that […]
