The First CD Player Sony CDP-101

Unlike today's varieties of CD players in the market, have you ever wondered when was the first CD player launched in the world and by who?

Sony Introduced CDP-101 which was the first Compact Disk Audio CD player launched on the market for the first time and it cost about $900. Stepping in the world of digital music, the first CD player made the music more clear and without any hissing sounds as in Audio tapes. The CDP-101 also included the surround sound giving more vibrant and pristine sound quality. However the price was very high and thus only those who could afford it had a great deal of pride back in the 80s.
