The Walkman Archive: Gallery of Analogue Music Players from the 70s and 80s

If you're looking to take a stroll down memory lane, let Hugo Rodriguez's extensive collection of walkman be your guide on his Walkman Archive website. Complete with articles and beautiful photography, each one of these portable music players from our analogue past still works and performs.

I've created this site mainly to show others my collection, but also to contribute to keep walkmans alive with all kind of details of every model. I tried to do it in an stylish way.

Most of the units have been taken to a professional technician to turn them "back to life" and let me enjoy them.

As I work on professional photography and have enough skills about creating a website, I decided to build a new, high-quality, elegant website to share my collection and a lot of information with all the community of collectors and walkman fans.
