Description

Commemorative model to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Sony corporation.

The WM-EX5 was a special edition model released to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the foundation of what would become the Sony Corporation by Masaru Ibuka and Akio Morita. In 1946 the company was known as Tokyo Tsushin Kogyo K. K. which loosely translates to “Tokyo Telecommunications Engineering Corporation”, the Sony name came later.

Its basic mechanism is shared with other Walkman models (like the WM-EX652) but was presented quite differently, the cassette door opened along its “short” side and the cassette was posted in lengthways, much as it is in a car player.
The cassette lid featured a see-through window with a mirror finish, the cassette was only just visible inside. Only a few controls were on the machine itself, the largest of which being the door catch at the top centre. Beside this were switches for Dolby B NR and blank skip, along with a volume control and a battery indicator.
On the rear behind a slide-down door the 4 tape transport buttons, which could operate the deck’s basic functions. The edges of the model were finished in soft grey rubber and a special silver carrying bag was provided to protect the finish.Via Walkman Central (edited)
