WM-FX121

This fairly basic entry level radio model had no particularly interesting features, except that blue version (as shown in our picture) was almost exactly the same colour as the original TPS-L2. Text copyright © Walkman Central. Unauthorised reproduction prohibited.

Technically, the basic mechanism was simplified from one fitted to the auto-reverse models with some of the parts required for bi-directional play removed. The truncated capstan that would have been used in the reverse direction could still be seen, though its flywheel still formed part of the “anti rolling mechanism”. Under ideal conditions, up to 13 hours of battery life was possible. A switchable volume limiter (AVLS) was included to protect the listener’s hearing. Text copyright © Walkman Central.
