WM-24

(1985)

The WM-24 addressed one of the WM-22‘s only weaknesses, the lack of Dolby NR. Adding this feature increased the price by a third, but it was still reasonable for a machine of this quality. The Dolby system was implemented properly so that a suitably equipped workshop could calibrate the “Dolby Level” accurately. This, allied to the already well-adjusted nature of the WM-22’s equalisation resulted in a player with a bright, vivid sound that was really enjoyable to use. Text copyright © Walkman Central.

Little else was altered, the only visible change, apart from the Dolby switch, was that the cassette door was slightly restyled. There was also a new colour to choose: Champagne gold, which was a metallic finish that made the casework look more expensive than it was. Text copyright © Walkman Central.
