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
