    kewl ..yet useless? in 2019 Sony TCM-57 cassette recorder (mono)

    In a great moment of why bother? I got this thing for free but it didn't work..

    so I have a bunch of assorted tape deck belts I got awhile ago for my other walkman.. I figured.. meh I'll take it apart and fix belt... which i did... put i back together and it works (kewl) and then I figured out it is mono... ... too bad the quality of the build is quite decent (made in Japan) .. but I don't really need a personal cassette recorder that only plays back in mono.. however the built in speaker is kinda funny...

    who knows maybe someone will use one of these in a movie / tv show (if you make movies / tv shows PLEASE put on of these in your movie / show and maybe it will become worth $?)

    anyways.. kewl retro looking Sony TCM-57 that is fairly useless in 2019

    pic of belt swap: sooo many tiny screws to remove.. actually not that many 8~ or so but they are tiny little things)

    it was interesting luckily found service manual for similar unit made changing belt less of a hassle.. and I'm glad I did it.. but what I'll do with this thing now??? no idea..

    oh yeah my other Sony walkman.. this one I also had to change the belt on .. These collapse down in size when no tape is in unit. I had one of these as a kid.. the feature is now and then more of a nuisance than anything as it makes fumbling one of these easier as I recall that is what ended the one I had as a kid.

    Check out this doc on Prime....

    Makes me want to dig out my old Onkyo deck and boxes of cassettes.
    The only important thing these days, is rhythm and melody. Rhythm...and melody.
