SAM_0794

The CDP 101 was the world’s first commercially released CD Player, and was launched in Japan on October 1, 1982 at a list price of 168,000 yen (approx £985 using today’s currency conversion) but actually went on sale in the United Kingdom for nearer £550, which in today’s value is probably near £1800!

This particular Player pictured came with the original manual and original remote control which is rare in itself.
