Up there in the list of Sony’s greatest Walkmans – this one sits just under the legendary WM-DD100 Boodo Khan. One of the few Walkmans that included Dolby C – this was aimed at professionals and had a separate Line Out and Headphone Socket. Like all the other “DD” Walkmans – the centre gear had split so it wouldn’t play – this has been replaced with the same kit as detailed in the “Walkman Archive Sony DD Repair Guide” – google it. This is the 23rd DD Gear I’ve replaced – so I know what I’m doing. 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. Or search “YouTube Yermawn”. In lovely used condition. Mechanically the centre gear had cracked so it’s been removed and replaced with a new one, cleaned the head, roller and volume potentiometers – so it now plays perfectly, in stereo, at the right speed with no wow or flutter, it rewinds and fast-forwards exactly as it should. The volume adjusts smoothly without crackle or dropout. Battery terminals are corrosion free. The case is a little grubby but still useable. This Walkman is perfectly useable playing as good as the day it was new nearly 40 years ago! The headphones are new and boxed. I have 10 years experience refurbishing 100’s of Walkmans! You get what you pay for – there won’t be any disappointment when it arrives – it will work as described! If it IS as described and you change your mind – relist it yourself and feel free to reuse my Listing, Pictures and Video Link – you’ll probably make a profit! 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.
