We've discussed this a few times over the years so maybe it's time to put the records straight.
Which walkman is in fact the smallest?
* Walkman has to play compact cassettes, no mini cassettes I'm afraid.
* Walkman is measured with bolt on battery holder if required to operate. Walkmans which also run off internal gumstick battery can be measured without bolt on battery holder.
* Overall size is calculated by volume (length x height x depth = volume).
* Protruding buttons aren't counted in overall measurements.
* Lumps & raised areas (WM-701) are included in overall measurements e.g. height is measured to top of lump.
* Units with all controls on remote only can be measured without taking the remote into consideration.
So, which are the contenders?
We can add to the list as we go on but the initial front runners are as follows:
* Sony WM-10
* Sony WM-150
* Sanyo JJ series
* Sony WM-40
* Sony WM-100
* Sony WM-701C
Now, I think I have a couple of additional contenders up my sleeve, I need to get them from the attic but be warned, you ain't seen anything like these & they meet all the above criteria, no tricks.
John, if you have any of the above, could you measure w x d x l and we'll see what we've got. Anyone else, feel free to suggest more units, folding/collapsable Tosh's & JVC's are allowed, I just can't recall the model numbers.
