Decided to rotate the belt and spindles inside of my Sony Walkman today. Been a few months since I powered it up. 


So I charged my gum stick battery and woke it up today. It's truly a marvel they could get a Walkman down to this size and fully functional with only one 1.2V NiMH. This is my smallest Walkman and the only one I have with Dolby and music search. The W/F are a little higher than I like however, it seems to be getting better the longer it plays so it's probably my fault for letting it sit.


I'm sure any of these still left that are working are still desirable.

These late walkmans are sweet, really good units and a marvel of packaging. Lovely

Never seen that 1. Nice and small. I picked up a decently priced wm-d6 few months ago. Definitely not carry around user friendly
