Sony's second ever CD player and collector's item
Slim but solid metal player from 1983, when CD just seemed to be able to perhaps make a dent into expected LP sales, logic successor lineup-wise and size-wise to the original CDP-101 bestseller: CDP-101 > CDP-102.
The audio board was also used in the ES CDP-302ES.
Inside are Sony's own chips and the famed, long-lasting magnet-driven linear CD motor; weighing 5,7kg, this was still very healthy second generation CD players, coming on the market when most brands hadn't even introduced their first CD player
Looks-wise, the CDP-102 is much better in real life than on images
The silver pads made for an excellent design idea : they are in fact a single pad etched differently to outline the respective functions - even better.
The cd drawer is made of metal and not of flimsy plastic and oozes quality
It is guided via metal rods and these have been cleaned an newly lubricated.
The CD player works very swiftly with a solenoid relay engaging with a distinct "click" when the CD is recognized.
Cosmetically it has some small marks, which tried to capture in the pictures, but in general the Sony is in very nice condition
