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’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 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: […]

Hello and welcome to another of my reviews! This should be an interesting read for most of you here I think.

Collecting walkmans is great. I love tapes and walkmans and almost anything related to them. But, aside from collecting them I like to collect also rare accesories, like the dbx portable decoder: Also, apart from ‘standard’ walkmans, I like other type of walkmans, like DCC (Digital Compact Cassette, a very unsucessful standard for digital tapes).

I’ve added recently a very special unit to my collection: the Infinity Intimate. This walkman is special because of two reasons: the main one is because it was the world’s first walkman that featured Dolby system. The second one is because it was the only one walkman that this very respected high-end speaker brand made […]

Today, 1st of october, but 30 yrs ago started to arrive the CD player to the stores, and the decline of the walkman era began. An excellent spanish blog has published a small article about that and they published a photo of my collection, where you can see almost every musical portable player in this 30 years. […]

I received recently this curious walkman. Its most curious feature is that it features easy digitalization of tapes. Although digitizing tapes is not definitely something I’m interested in, I decided to buy this walkman because I received one of those typical emails with a good deal: normal price -> 43 euros. This deal -> 18 euros. […]

Today I was digging in my collection to find my most weird walkmans. I mean: those walkmans that are very particular because of a strange design or a feature. And this is what I found: 10 models that are definitely strange. I sorted them by their “weird score” (IMHO). Here they are: in 10th position […]
