Description

This is a high quality unit with soft touch control, Auto-Reverse for recording and playback.
Large LCD display, 2X speed recording, stereo speakers, A-B repeat, microphone, and more.

RQ-L470 was a Stereo Cassette Recorder in the style of a Walkman, manufactured by the Panasonic Corporation. This unit was very similar looking to the RQ-L480, which was also an alternative model with slightly more functions, like IC recording into semiconductor memory. Both units have built-in stereo loudspeakers and Voice Activated system (VAS), and have useful features such as auto-reverse (recording too), adjustable tape speed control. One of its main features was the long duration of battery life providing up to 18-hours microphone recording, and 25-hours playback through earphones.

The tape transport system and mechanism together with the disc motor are very reminiscent to some of the later models in the Sony WM-EX range. With a good pair of headphones, the sound quality is excellent, as is the recording function. The chipset is very much the same as what one would expect in a Walkman, consisting of TA452 2002FNG, BA5208AF, LA3235, 2072, and LB1877 that Sanyo, Toshiba, and ROHM Corporations are experts at manufacturing.Via Peter Vis (edited)
