A   COOL  ENOUGH  SONY  WALKMAN   CALLED 
                                          
                                       
            TCM ONEFIFTY            
                                       
                                          
 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
