Silver Toshiba KT-AS10 & Tuner Pack. This is so cool – the Worlds Smallest Personal Cassette player – which Toshiba released stealing the limelight from Sony. I’ve always wanted one of these to fiddle with, but they generally haven’t survived the ravages of time too well, usually they’re covered in scratches – so when I spotted this almost mint one I had to have it. I’ve replaced the belt and it’s back working just as well as the day it was new – and I have to say that the Tuner Pack is far from an afterthought – I’ve never heard a Walkman with as good a radio in it as this thing – it’s absolutely brilliant – the video below really doesn’t do it justice (Radio reception isn’t great through the cables I use to record – it’s flippin brilliant when you’ve got headphones plugged in). 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 stunning, almost pristine condition. Mechanically the belt had turned to goo so the old belt residue has been meticulously cleaned and a new belt installed – the head, roller and capstan have been cleaned – so it now plays perfectly, in stereo, in both directions, at the right speed with no wow or flutter. It rewinds and fast-forwards exactly as it should. The volume potentiometer has been cleaned so the volume adjusts smoothly without crackle or dropout. It still has the battery cover and the battery terminals are corrosion free. The Radio pack works perfectly tuning easily to FM stations and playing in stereo. This Walkman is useable on a daily basis – sounds as good as the day it was new and should not give you any trouble for years to come. 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.
