Vertical CD player (part 2 KYOCERA)


cd player

This is part 2 of our series dedicated to first generation vertical loading CD players. This part is dedicated to the Cybernet by KYOCERA based CD player family. The Cybernet by KYOCERA DA-01 model was in fact first advertised in the USA as Cybernet (a company that KYOCERA recently bought) in 1982. That was before the official launch of the Compact Disc. A series of rebadged units were made based on this player, the strangest being the Phase Linear because at this time Phase Linear belonged to Pioneer and they had their own first generation CD player. See all models of this range:
