WM-F64

(1988)

This model combined the auto-reverse mechanism of the WM-B39 with an AM/FM stereo radio. The radio was built into the cassette door, so it added little to the overall size of the machine. The WM-F64 was unusual because as well as having a normal tuning scale for AM and FM, it offered three pre-set stations on the FM band. These were selected by a sliding switch and adjusted by three small controls inside the cassette compartment. As the preset tuning system was mechanical in nature, the settings were retained even without battery power. Text copyright © Walkman Central. Unauthorised reproduction prohibited.

As well as the radio, the WM-F64 included auto reverse, metal tape compatibility and Dolby B NR for the cassette. “Mega bass” was also fitted, which could be set to two different levels of effectiveness. Text copyright © Walkman Central. Unauthorised reproduction prohibited.

The WM-F64 was available in two versions, those with an “A” prefix (e.g. WM-AF64) had a sensitivity switch (local/DX) and those with a “B” prefix (e.g. WM-BF64) had a mono/stereo switch, both of which affected the FM radio only. Text copyright © Walkman Central. Unauthorised reproduction prohibited.
