These days it’s 17 years ago, I bought my first Compact Disc player, a Kenwood DP-660SG. The CD format was still very young, but there was no doubt, it was a winner (and so it was).
Now, 17 years later, I still have that CD player! It still works like a charm, so I haven’t had a reason to replace it. That’s quite something, I guess – but what’s more impressive: I never even had to replace the batteries in the remote control! Yes – the batteries in my remote control are now 17 years old – and they are still functioning! That’s amazing.
