My name is Mike and I'm from Perth Western Australia.
Been taking electronics apart since I can remember and was in high school from 1981 to 1985 so a great time to be alive :)
Started this obsession again about 1 year ago buying a Sony FH-100W then bought my first Sony walkman WM-FX77 and now I have 21 Sony Walkmans including the D6C and F20, 6 working Panasonic walkmans and just started on the AIWA lineup with a HS-JX707
Seems you can never have too many of them :)
I owned a Sharp GF5454 back in the 80's but it was binned (spewing)
Bought a Sony CFS-9900 new back in 1985 from my local Sony shop which has since closed up about 2 years ago.
I enjoy the repairing as much as the listening.
