Sony's WM-FX281 stereo cassette player is portable enough--and, at under half a pound--light enough to go anywhere. In
addition to playing tapes, the Walkman offers drift-free, digitally synthesized FM stereo and wideband AM, TV (channels
2 to 13), and weather band (channels 1 to 7) reception.
The player's automatic volume limiter system (AVLS) maintains an even volume level, guarding against unintended level
increases and evening the output of musical passages that vary widely in level. A switch adjusts the sound to
accommodate metal-oxide tapes, and Mega Bass produces deep, rich bass tones. Automatic shut-off (in playback mode)
extends battery life and helps prevent both mechanical and tape wear by turning off unit at the end of each tape side.
Finally, an anti-rolling mechanism maintains stable tape speed to minimize music-distorting "wow and flutter" while the
player is in motion.
For the radio, 40-station preset memory offers one-button tuning to your choice of seven TV stations, four
weather-band stations, 24 FM stations, and five AM stations. An FM local/distant (DX) switch improves reception of fuzzy
Supplied MDR-027 over-ear headphones offer wide dynamic range and clear sound, and the unit also comes with a carry
case and belt clip. Two AA batteries provide up to 32 hours (maximum, using Sony Alkaline batteries) of continuous tape
playback, or up to 40 hours of FM radio reception.
