Boxed & Complete Sony Walkman WM-101. God these things are a pain to get working – I have 6 WM-101’s, I gave up on the first 3 I tried to get working perfectly – but finally stuck gold with this one. A little slow to start up and maybe a little quieter on one side – but I’m really nit-picking, it’s pretty much working perfectly and is 100% useable. But the coolest thing about this is obviously the fact that it’s in its original box and it 100% complete with all the correct accessories and documentation! These are only going up 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. Very rare and sought-after Sony Walkman WM-101 in it’s original box, complete with all it’s original accessories, in pristine condition. Mechanically it’s working perfectly, the old belts had perished so I’ve replaced it, cleaned the head, rollers, and capstans so now it plays perfectly at the correct speed in both directions with minimal wow and flutter, rewinds and fast-forwards. The battery contacts are corrosion free and the original Headphones are in stunning condition and work perfectly! The original gumstick battery is assumed to be unuseable and the battery charger is untested and requires a 100v power supply so may need a power converter. 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.
