Well this is the one that everyone wants (well apart from the WM-20) – so here’s a near perfect example in incredibly rare pink – check out the video below to see for yourself. These commonly suffer from cracked gears – this one is perfect and good for another 40 years when it will only appreciate in value! As with all my refurbished Walkmans you don’t have to take my work for how good they sound because I provide you with a video so you can hear for yourself. I’m not a professional sound engineer – I feed the output from the walkman into the mic input on my Canon DSLR. These are complex analogue machines in a digital world – the old belt residue must be completely and meticulously removed – otherwise the new belt will wobble causing wow and flutter. In near pristine condition, the belt had turned to goo so the old belt residue has been meticulously cleaned, a new belt installed, head and the roller and capstan have been cleaned – so it now plays perfectly, rewinds and fast-forwards exactly as it should. These commonly suffer from a cracked reel gear – this one has 2 perfect gears and should be good for another 40 years! It still has the battery cover and the battery terminals are corrosion free. I’m not an audio engineer which is why I include a video so you can hear it play and judge for yourself. I do not extensively test these over periods of hours/days – I don’t have the time. My only guarantee is that it should work as you see in the video when it arrives. All items will be bubble wrapped and dispatched in a rigid cardboard box to ensure that they reach you without any damage in transit. See my other auctions for loads more cool Sony Walkmans.
