WM-DD3

The WM-DD3 was in simple terms a development of the WM-DD2. Building on the strengths of the previous model it added a quartz-locked action to the DD motor, giving absolute speed stability under all operating conditions. A similar system had been used in the WM-D6 but the WM-DD3 was the first playback-only model to use it. Text copyright © Walkman Central. Unauthorised reproduction prohibited.

Unlike the WM-D6 the WM-DD3 did not offer the facility to defeat the quartz lock and trim the playback speed manually, instead the circuit was permanently active and fully automatic in action. Text copyright © Walkman Central. Unauthorised reproduction prohibited.

Quartz lock aside the WM-DD3 was nearly identical to the WM-DD2, including the provision of Dolby B NR and compatibility for all tape types. The next model in the development of the series was the WM-DC2. Text copyright © Walkman Central. Unauthorised reproduction prohibited.
