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 […]

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. […]
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.
