Summary: A truly retro cassette player. I've still got 400 tapes (along with CD's & albums), and I love this compact unit. Outstanding frequency range, runs on one ni-cad AA, and it fits in my pocket. Thank you Sony.
Summary: The cassett part has to have the cassett turned around when it is through on one side. The radio is very limited on station I can get. My old one brought in a lot of stations. Also no light to indicate it is on or off. I am not very happy with it. Wish I hadn't paid so much and order my old brand.
Summary: The tape deck works well & the sound is good. The FM works well although it does not have a lot of range - I can't get stations within an hour of where I live. The button to change stations is not easy to operate as I have the unit usually in my pants pocket & I have to fool around to change...
Summary: I had purchased an iPod for my wife, but she really wanted a simple portable cassette player. After checking around, I found that the Sony Walkman was the only portable cassette player that had a good reputation for reliability and sound.
Summary: bought for my husband to listen to his old big band cassette's and he just loves it!! these are hard to find but are really the best for older people who hang onto things of the past such as "old favorite cassettes". please do not quit manufacturing these "little jewels".
Summary: I purchased this same model a few years back. It was dropped and broken, and Sony repair service was unable to repair it. I listen to a lot of classical music and find the sound quality on this model excellent so I bought exactly the same model.
