The Iconic Sony…Soundabout..?

From April, 1980’s Popular Science comes this piece on the new electronic gizmos about to debut. Prominently placed in the center is the $200 Sony “Soundabout,” which as we all know, was renamed to the catchier “Walkman.” Check out that nifty VCR, too, here.


$200 for a Walkman in 1980 is, like, $560 in today’s money.
