Description

WM-3 was the new number for the TPS-L2.

WM-3 was the new number for the TPS-L2. The new numbering fitted nicely into the range with the WM-2 and WM-1, and even though technology had advanced greatly in the short time since the original TPS-L2 had appeared, very few changes were made.

The changes are, however, worth noting. The play key was now labelled "play" instead of "listen". The talk-line button, now silver and matching the tape transport keys in finish, latched down (previously it had had a momentary action). The DC input socket was changed to a smaller size so that the same AC adaptor and battery holder that was supplied with the WM-2 could be used. The tone switch was now re-labelled as a tape-type selector for normal and chrome/metal tapes. Because of this, a logo for metal tape was printed clearly on the front of the machine. The carrying case had been restyled and now allowed the cassette to be more visible and more easily changed. Finally, the case (and the carrying case) became black instead of blue. None of these changes altered the performance of the machine and no noticeable changes were made to the mechanical or electronic parts.

The WM-3 was quite large compared to the WM-2 (though smaller than the WM-1) but was slightly more expensive, it was sold as a high-quality alternative. For some markets, a gold finish was offered named WM-3 "Excellent" in a bespoke box.Via Walkman Central (edited)
