The Aiwa HS-P05 is an ultra-compact stereo cassette player. Except for "Stop", controls have all been located on top of the housing, so you can easily perform tape operation modes (including fast forward, rewind, etc.) can be easily performed with the unit in the palm of the hand. With the cue/review option the tape can be advanced or rewinded to search out the next tune (or the previous one) without having to switch from the "Play" mode. The HS-P05 gives up to 12 hours playback from two Alkaline "AAA" (SUM-4) penlight batteries. Optional AC adaptor connection provides even more economical use from AC house current.
