What Are The Different CD Players That Exist?

CD players have come a very long way from the very first CD player, the Sony CDP-101, made in 1982. That means the CD player turns 36 this year. Let's take a look at the different CD players.

The Standard Single Disc Design-

These players may seem basic, but the audio that comes from CD players is amazing. Don't waste your time playing CDs in a DVD player when you could use one of these. CD players have special hardware that allows it to play CDs at way higher quality than a regular DVD player.

5 Disc Changer-

5 and 6 disc exchange systems. These will hold 5 CDs, sometimes 6, and make it much easier to listen to 5 albums at once. Just turn on shuffle all discs and it will play a random CD and song everytime. 

200 Disc Changer-

You can can get a 400 disc changer that plays just CDs, or one that plays DVDs and CDs. They will both play CDs at the same quality. With many models, you can give each disc a title so you can find it more easily.

Under Cabinet CD Players were a major advancement in the CD world. They allowed you to install a CD player under any cupboard, or really under any thin wooden surface. They are really convenient. Anyone who spends time in the kitchen, needs one of these. Not only is it a CD player, but it also has a built in radio so that you can listen to AM/FM radio. If you buy the right one, you can get amazing audio with very clean bass.
