Sony Updates an Old, Old Machine

Just when you thought cassette and CD players are going to die a natural death, Sony pulled a surprising development as it updates its cassette/ radio/ CD player combo. The CFD-A110 is based on an old machine Sony unveiled 7 years ago. There aren’t really any difference. You would still get 2W x 2ch speakers, a Karaoke function, a microphone port, and a wireless remote control.

The only difference to this updated version is that it can no longer receive analog radio transmissions, in compliance to Japan’s plans to halt such transmissions beginning 2011. Make you wonder whether it would make much of difference anyway.

The Sony CFD-A110 will initially be available in Japan on June 21, costing about US$210. It is unclear whether it will be exported to other countries.
