This might be my favorite Walkman ever made.

I am the proud owner of a brand-new, professionally restored EX2000 that is utterly immaculate in every way and has its original box and all accessories etc. It takes the centre in my collection.

A lot of people talk about how the Sony DC2, D6C, DD9, etc. are the best but I doubt they have ever tried this Walkman. Many "good" Walkmans are niche-class and excel generally in just one aspect. This thing of beauty has it all and it boasts features that models from the 80s and 90s could only dream of. 25x FF/RW speed, cue, blank skip, revive, surround sound, 100h battery life, wow & flutter at only 0.09% RMS! thanks to the quartz lock, dual direct drive and heavy brass flywheels; direct line circuit, feather touch buttons and near silent operation. All in a body that is only 145 grams! The frequency response of the oxygen-free copper (OFC) head is actually 20-20000Hz (this page has an error). The only other models with heads to come close to this are the extremely special 12-core laminate head on the Panasonic RQ-S80 and the Aiwa's NG-HX heads on the PX-303 and PX-505. None of those 3 models though have half the other features this EX2000 has.

Truly this is a masterpiece Walkman. If you can ever get your hands on one, do not think twice. If you ask me, it's one of the closest contenders to a real audiophile cassette Walkman.
