a  cool  enough   sony   walkman  called

 it's battery powered (two  aa batteries) 
 and has a microphone. it  does feature a 
 speed hole  but it's hidden  beneath its 
                  shell.                  
                                          
 a  cool  thing  is  the  speaker on  the 
 front. but isn't that  a magnet close to 
              the tape? yes               
                                          
              is it good              
                                          
 well. it has some  very real compression 
 going on  so close  vox  and  other high 
 volume things are  very  crisp  and with 
 kind  of  low  noise.  but  when there's 
 more of  an  ambience, all  you  hear is 
           hiss and motor noise.          
                                          
  denoising techniques are simple. actual 
 denoising for  the  noise, and maybe  an 
             eq for the motor.            
                                          
      what     is     it     for      
                                          
 i use it for talking to  when i'm drunk. 
 it  does  this   very  good.  the  pause 
 button is a small stop, the stop  button 
             is a major stop.             
                                          
              some quirks             
                                          
  when unpausing, recording begins before 
 the  engine is fully  spun up, resulting 
 in   a   nice  swoop   being   recorded. 
                                          
 it   made   me    buy    a    vhs    cam 
                                          
                                          
                                       
                                          
        rest in pieces, literally
