Happy September, everyone! I can't believe I'm already saying that. It
seems like summer just started.
Just today I got something that I've been wanting to get for a long time.
Introducing the Sony D-5 Compact Disc Compact Player!
First released in 1984 at $350, the Sony D-5 (D-50 in international markets)
was the world's first portable CD player
As a fan of vintage audio stuff and a Sony collector, I had to have one
of these. The sound isn't anything special, though it does sound lightyears
better than the cheap portable disc players in stores today.
I'll probably keep this unit on my desk for when I want to listen to CDs
through headphones while I'm working on things.
