WM-F560

(1988)

This short-lived model replaced the WM-F66. It offered the same mix of features, such as an AM/FM radio, stereo recording and Dolby B NR/metal tape compatibility (both on playback only). To this already extensive list, the WM-F560 added three pre-tuned programmes on FM, “mega bass” loudness and auto reverse. Text copyright © Walkman Central. Unauthorised reproduction prohibited.

The WM-F560 was based on the WM-F64 and looked very similar to it. The record button was placed similarly to that of the WM-F66, next to the “stop” key. Recordings could be made in both directions, though the reverse key was blocked whilst the mechanism was in recording mode. Text copyright © Walkman Central. Unauthorised reproduction prohibited.

As with the WM-F66, the WM-F560 could record either from the supplied miniature stereo microphone capsule or from the radio, though one would have to remember to connect the headphones if recordings were to be made from FM as their lead formed the antenna. One feature that was not carried over from the WM-F66 was the monitor loudspeaker, something that was always a bit out of place in a Walkman anyway. Text copyright © Walkman Central.
