      I found this Aiwa Stereo Rado/Cassette player among some of my oldest electronic devices. However, It can be found and purchased online easily. A set of ear buds and a small microphone are included with the device. I like how this portable device is so simple to use and maintain. Only 2 AAA batteries are required for operation. A power chord/adapter is also included to feed off a wall socket.

      Being made in the late 80’s, no flash memory is present. Instead, a cassette tape is used. The ear bud and microphone jacks are located on top of the device, right next to the radio/cassette switch and tuning wheel. I am always


      surprised at how simple and ergonomic this unit is. The device can be completely controlled using just one hand, despite the fact that there are no LCD displays anywhere. This is due to the switches, wheels, and buttons being cleverly placed so that they are easy to remember and reach. An instruction manual isn’t even needed, because of the affective labels. This device scores high for being ergonomic and incredibly easy to use.

      I like the functionality of the device as well. When plugged into the microphone jack, the included microphone records directly to the cassette tape. Sound quality is very reasonable, and the cassette playback is almost instant. This device is ...


      • very good for listening to any old cassette tapes which have old memories in them. This unit also works as a radio. AM and FM radio can be listened to with just a flick of the top switch. There is occasional static if the batteries are drained, but the sound quality is usually as good as any digital radio. Radio frequency selection is still very easy without an LCD screen, because the scroll wheel moves an LED light which you just match up with frequency numbers to the side.

        I think that the device excels in cassettes and radio listening. You can even select up to three stations which the unit

        will remember. Going between favorite shows is literally as easy as pressing a button. Not only is the device easy to use, it also has a working 4-band graphic equalizer. Sound quality and frequencies can be balanced any way you like.

        Despite being outdated, this AIWA product is still useful. It plays/records cassette tapes that most modern devices just don’t support. Even if you don’t own any cassette tapes, this device is still a handy radio. This unit is easily purchased online, despite being out of make. It costs under $15 if bought secondhand from an online store. I consider this as a great value, as it costs as much as most other portable radios.
