Transcript of History of Music Players

By: Joclyn and Ryan The History of Music Players Regency TR-1 1954 Back in 1954, listening to the radio where ever you went cost you $49.95. It was known and marketed as the first pocket radio in the world. It was also the first transistor radio. It was made by Industrial Development Engineering Associates and Texas Instruments and consisted of parts built by various parties scattered throughout the States. Raytheon 8-TP-1 1955 The Raytheon 8TP series was their first radio, and the second transistor radio commercially produced. The case is large, and contains eight socketed transistors. Chassis looks identical to that used in the Lucite version. The top radio is the 8TP-1, while the bottom is the 8TP-4. Stereobelt 1972 The Stereobelt was the first portable personal stereo audio cassette player. It was invented by the German-Brazilian Andreas Pavel. The Stereobelt is the technology that the Walkman and modern-day personal audio devices such as the Zune and the iPod are based on. Boombox 1976 Boombox is a common word for a portable cassette or CD player with two or more loudspeakers. Other names for the Boombox are ghetto blaster, jambox, Brixton briefcase or radio-cassette. It is a device capable of receiving radio stations and playing recorded music (usually cassettes or CDs), usually at relatively high volume. Many different Boomboxes are also capable of recording (onto cassette) from radio and (sometimes) other sources. It is designed to be a portable music player, most boomboxes can be powered by batteries, as well as by line current. The Walkman 1979 The prototype was built by audio-division engineer Nobutoshi Kihara for Sony co-chairman Akio Morita, who wanted to be able to listen to operas. The original Walkman was marketed in 1979 as the Walkman in Japan and, from 1980, the Soundabout in many other countries including the US, despite all the foreign languages, still attracted thousands of buyers in the US specifically.

You can do anything like play game, watch videos, etc. Thank You For Watching!
