WORLD'S FIRST CD PLAYER
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What was the world's first CD player?

In a world that is quickly turning away from DVDs, after it seems we had just discovered them, and turning to technology such as Blu-ray, one sometimes wonders what started it all. It may not be surprising that the manufacturer of the world’s first CD player was Sony, a leading name still in electronics today.

It was on October 1, 1982 that Sony released the world’s first CD player, which was called the CDP-101, and it’s market retail value was approximately $900 USD. With their release, not only did Sony change the way people listened to music, but they also changed the way the music sounded when played. Unlike its tape cassette predecessors which were analogue, the CD player was digital and used patterns of 1’s and 0’s on the disc that the player read.

The CDP-101 didn’t only revolutionize the way that people listened to music but it also paved the way for other huge technological advancements such as the CDR and CDR/W drives that are most often found in computers and laptops today, also revolutionizing the way people stored their data. Who knows what the future holds but it all started with the CDP-101!
