Description

The first of new series of “cassette case sized”, without the battery in the main housing. For CND and US.

The styling was geared to make the machine as small as was possible, so thin pressed metal was used extensively. A fashionable appearance was created by the use of bright details.

As well as being small, the WM-102 included all the features one would expect from an expensive Walkman model, such as Dolby B NR, metal tape compatibility and auto-reverse. Like the WM-51, the cassette door could be locked shut.

So small was the WM-100 series that the battery had to be fitted externally. Two holders, either of which could be clipped to the bottom, were provided, one for a single “AA” sized cell and one for a special rechargeable battery. The latter had to be charged externally in a special charger, which was included in the outfit.Via walkmancentral (edited from WM-102)
