Sony CDP-557ESD

The original "7" series player, sold worldwide as a CDP-557ESD and in the US as a CDP-707ESD. Still adorned with many a button and many a visible feature reminding us that this still was the 1980s. Inside is a different story as the 557/707 holds the same aluminium Die-Cast base resting on a G-Base used in the Reference CDP-R1 drive. No balanced output yet but an ultra-fast linear drive, dual PTs, solid aluminium lid door, copper-plated chassis and busses and everything, superimposed layers of steel and fine ceramics feet all make up for it. The series that came from this one player became a set of bestsellers: CDP-X7ESD, CDP-X77ES, CDP-X777ES, CDP-X779ES, CDP-X707ES. The slightly lower-end models (still very much high-end) sold just as well, like the CDP-X505ES or the earlier CDP-X559ES. If the digital-to-analogue section of the CDP-557ESD sounds a little old-fashioned nowadays, the drive section still is more than worthwhile!

Sony CDP-101

On October 1, 1982 Sony introduced the CDP-101, the first Compact Disc audio CD player on the market. In contrast to the analog audio playback products up to that time, the Compact Disc was digital, reconstructing sound from a rapid stream of 1's and 0's stored sequentially on the disc. This first player was designated CDP-101 rather than the more likely CDP-100 in reference to an alternating binary string like 101101101. Thanks to Sony's industrial clout and good marketing perspective, the 101 is without a doubt the most remembered 1st generation CD player. It should be kept in mind, however, that the hardware side of the format (which is what made it really new and different) came from Philips; it is mainly the PCM coding and error correction schemes that Sony perfected for this Philips format. D/A was done by Sony's own chips, just like on the CDP-701ES. The slightly later and bigger CDP-501 (ES or not) used many common parts with the CDP-101. The back of the 101 holds a substantial transformer and heatsink, a pair of output plugs, "auto-pause" and "anti-shock" switches. Some models sported a "sync out" minijack output as well. All versions had the mysterious "accessory" connector, planned for graphics to be output - CD after all only was the side result of Laserdisc research.

Sony CDP-552ESD

The CDP-552ESD was sold in the US as a CDP-650ESD. The upgraded version (CDP-650ESDII, aka CDP-552-ESDII in Europe) had an encapsulated PT, added headphones socket but the same DACs. Sony's 1st consumer & audiophile player, sporting a Digital output as well (ES-D). And that output was way ahead of its time - or way behind. Although Sony used its own DACs from the CDP-101 onward, the 552ESD was the first high-end unit using other makes, a (fairly strange) move which stopped with the introduction of the CDP-X77ES in 1990 and its Sony/NTT PULSE chips. Sony's 1st outboard D/A units recommended for CDP-552ESD (DAS-702 and DAS-703ES) used Sony's own DACs, while the 1987 DAS-R1 reference used Silver Crown Philips' TDA-1541!
