  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 […]

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: […]

This was an anniversary model, and only 2000 units were released for the entire world. I was excited to see how beautiful this silver walkman was, and I was delighted about […]

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 […]

I finally managed to buy a Marantz PMD430 in the last weeks. It’s in excellent condition, with very few use. The first impression is definitely worse than the SONY D5 Pro II. Specially if you have a mint D5, like me. The SONY looks solid like a rock, and precision is felt in every corner. […]
