Well I can’t say I ever expected to wake up to news about a new cassette player again, let alone one from Sony, but that’s exactly what happened this morning. But it turns out their CFD-A110 isn’t exactly new, but was actually released 7 years ago, and is only getting a refresh so that it will be compatible with digital radio as the country will be ceasing analog broadcasts next year. So, um, for the 5 of you that might still care, the CFD-A110 hasn’t really gained much other functionality over the past 7 years. It’s still your basic radio/CD/cassette player with rudimentary Karaoke functions (no lyrics or anything, just a mic input) though somehow when this updated version becomes available in June it will retail for around $210!
