We love walkmans, and headphones are an important factor for truly enjoying them. Choosing the right headphones can be a difference like night and day. Your walkman can be excellent as a source but a wrong headphone can make you hear not-so-good (or actually bad) sound. So, which ones are better? Don’t miss my latest […]

Just for the time when cassettes will become extremely rare and/or expensive, I’ve started searching for brand new ones some years ago. They are increasingly becoming expensive and rare, specially those good ones. It’s not rare to see many at 3-6 euros per unit today. I have quite a big reserve at this moment, and […]

I’ve recently contacted by eBay to write an article about my history for their webpage and their social networks, and I thought I would be a nice idea to promote my activity. And here’s the result: http://www.ebay.es/gds/Walkman-Archive-coleccionista-de-walkmans-/10000000205664776/g.html Hope you enjoy it.

I want to share with you my experience with Alex Nikitin, the technician from A.N.T. Audio in the UK. I wanted a Pioneer CT-F1250 since some time ago, but knowing that it’s a rather old deck I knew that it would need a definitely good servicing, so I consider sending to him. In fact, after founding one […]

Since I was a teen I loved small HI-Fis. As many other teens, money didn’t let me go as far as to have a boombox (an excellent one, though). But I kept dreaming… There are lots of choices if you search for a standard factor equipment, but very very few if you look for mini-sized […]

I have recently acquired an impressive Pioneer RT-909 reel to reel. As it’s a 30 year-old machine, it needed a complete check and servicing as you may guess. Here’s how it arrived. Not full of dust, but definitely dirty: The rollers were also disintegrated: And this is how the heads looked like. Full of dust […]

I never had seen a reel to reel machine until a few years ago. I mean, in person. I have only seen them in some books and in a few movies. My interest on them has growed in the latest years, after I discovered the incredible quality of the high-end analog audio. Many people talk […]

I have recently acquired one of those rare beauties in the boombox history: the Panasonic RX-DT9. This beast was the top-of-the-line model in this brand’s history, the most advanced and powerful (well, behind the RX-A2 monster). It’s so advanced that it can compete with many mini-HIFIs and it probably sounds better and has a lot […]
