Discman Model # Timeline

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hiya...

I don't think this has been done before...

I'm wondering if between us all we can list all (or as much as we can) Discmen in their respective years...

If this thread works out, then I can make a sticky thread with a full time line list - which could be helpful for ebays to work out heritage and the like...

We'll give it a go anyway

Cheers

Duncan

Made an attempt:

Release year of vintage Sony PCDPs? My D-5 has a manufature date of April 1985. Did the D-50 come out before the D-5, or maybe I have a later copy.

From the "20th Anniversary 1979-1999 Walkman Yearbook" published by the Japanese magazine "mono"....

November 10, 1984 - D-50
October 21, 1986 - D100
June 21, 1987 - D-600
April 21, 1988 - D-88
November 21, 1990 - D-303
May 10, 1992 - D-515
June 1, 1993 - D421SP
August 21, 1995 - D-80
February 21, 1996 - D-330
March 21, 1998 - D-5WD

These were all the models listed (with photos and MSRP). I guess the dates are the release dates for Japan.

The book has a much more complete listing (with photos, MSRP, and release dates) of cassette Walkmen.
