The replacement model for the TC-100 looked very similar but had been updated and improved in just about every possible way. Additions included a built-in electret condenser microphone, a new amplifier based around a special Sony integrated circuit (also shared with the TC-40), latching fast forward and rewind keys, a review function, a tape counter, a DC inlet socket for use with a car adaptor and a revised layout of the power supply section which was now constructed on a printed circuit board. Behind these changes the rest of the recorder stayed much the same with the styling and accessories remaining unaltered. There were now cheaper machines in the Sony range but the TC-110 was sold as high quality model for the more serious user. Text copyright © Walkman Central. Unauthorised reproduction prohibited.
