SONY WM-7 world’s first auto-reverse Walkman
This Walkman was the very first model in the history that featured two brand new technologies that made it very important in the history of players: one was a mechanism that allowed the user to switch to the other side of the tape without having to pull it out of the player: the auto-reverse. The other was the feather-touch control buttons. As you know, dozens of models featured those technologies after this milestone.
It has the following features:
- World’s first feather-touch control buttons.
- World’s first auto-reverse mechanism.
- Dolby B Noise reduction
- Normal/CrO2-Metal tape selector
- Very heavy, strong built
- Full metal body
- Made in Japan
This is indeed a true milestone and a real jewel for passionate collectors. It’s very hard to find.
STATUS: PARTIAL WORKING:
When a button is pressed, a motor can be heard, but does not play. Seems that it’s the motor that engages the mechanism, but it may need new belts.
Cosmetically the unit is in excellent condition, with only a few very small scrateches in some corners. For details, see the photos.
