Black Sony Walkman WM-20. This was the World’s Smallest Personal Cassette Player when it was released in 1983. I see a lot of WM-20 and WM-30’s, but this Black WM-20 is in gorgeous, almost pristine condition. It’s working just as well as it did when it was new nearly 40 years ago. The classic Walkman, the one that everyone wants and there are few better examples of a WM-20 than this – it’s absolutely stunning and plays as good as the day it was new! These often suffer from cracked gears which will cause wobbly playback (or no playback at all) – the gears in this are intact and it is working perfectly! Unlike everyone else out there I price my Walkman’s fairly – I just need to get my slice of the pie – this is priced to sell quickly and cheaper that the other Refurbished WM-10’s, 20’s and 30’s on. 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 virtually 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, at the right speed with no wow or flutter, it rewinds as it should and fast-forwards when the button is held. All gears have been checked and are intact. 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. Original headphones work perfectly. 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.
