I paid a very high price for mine. However, it was BNIB and its got a very low serial number (5XXXX) whereas most you'll see are in the 2XXXXX. Perfect condition box, all accessories, manuals and it had never been used. Still even has the battery compartment protection sticker etc.

Despite being such a small and competent model, with radio, Dolby-B & C, remote, DC in, autoreverse and even an extended amorphous head. It can sell for barely $150 in mint condition which is shocking (half the release price). I am expecting this model to quintuple in price soon. It is completely underrated.

Its counterpart (701C) without the radio sells for 3-4x even though it's without the useful extra AM/FM/TV radio. Aesthetically it might look a bit "sleeker" without the digital display, but the radio is an amazing feature. This is AFAIK the only Walkman with a radio + Dolby-C and an EX amorphous head. That is, it might well be the best radio equipped Walkman ever made. The only contender I could think of is the Panasonic RQ-S75F or S90F which has a slightly better HX-FG head, but no Dolby-C.
