Sony Walkman

Post by Turkeytop » Thu Feb 16, 2017 9:21 pm

I have several Walkmans, but one of my favourite is the SRF-M37W. It is no longer in production, but today I was able to pick up a second one for $1 at a yard sale. Now I'll be able to keep one at home and the other here in Florida.

I have a couple of Sony walkmans.. i remember having a yellowish one frmo the early 1990s right up to... 2005-ish when it finally died. i loved it. was a good, rugged little thing that survived all the jogs and bike rides i took it on. :D

found an older mid-1980s walkman at a yardsale too... love all the silver finish on that one..

SRF-42; but how do you adjust it so that the tuning LED is actually on center instead of 2KHz off? Use it to listen to 630 CFCO in stereo since my SRF-A100 is in need of a capacitor shotgun treatment. Why is it the Sony stuff from the 60's still works, but not the 80s-2000s?

The SRF-29 is my favorite, excellent sound quality and a very sensitive FM front end!

The one I received in '92 or '93 as a birthday gift had a cassette deck. Unfortunately, this made the unit bulky and a bit heavy. It had decent sound quality on FM, not so good (but not terrible) on AM. Also had lousy AM band reception. The tabletop radios in the house were much better in that regard.
102.9 The Hog in Milwaukee KICKS ASS!!! Love the 90's weekends. (The playlist during the work week is damn good, too!)
