Sony Discman D-10 Black Portable CD Player

The Sony D-10 or D-100 in the Japanese market was the flagship Discman from 1988. It was retailed for approximately $350 U.S dollars. The D-10 stands out from the competition in several ways. First of all, it measures 5 inches long by 5 inches width and being just 3/4 inch thick, it was the thinnest portable CD players available back then. It is just amazing how Sony's engineer can fit its motor, disk drive, laser and all the digital decoding circuits into such a tiny space. By using more efficient chips, Sony was able to cut the power consumption of the D-10 by nearly 30 percent over the previous model, which means the D-10 can run for over four hours on a single charge using its rechargeable battery. Four hours of play time doesn't sound like much today but just so you know, most cassette and portable CD players can barely run for two hours.

As far as sound quality goes, the D-10 is probably one of the best sounding Sony Discman in history.

The headphone output is so powerful that it can drive most of today's low impedance headphone directly without using an external amplifier.
