Aiwa HS-P05 Stereo Cassette Player (1983)
Finding a NIB Aiwa Walkman is truly a rare thing. Finding one that's still working a 100% is even more rare. Most Aiwa Walkmans self destruct because of leaking capacitors, this being one of the earlier and simpler designs seems to have been saved this fate. I'm so chuffed that it still has the "World's Smallest Thinnest Lightest" sticker still in place.

This model was made around 1983. In 1984 Sony introduced the WM-10 which was quite a bit smaller and also features Dolby and Metal tape support which this Aiwa has neither. It is still a beautifully made Walkman and a nice addition to my collection.
