  7. Universal vs Dedicated Player

    CD Players | Turntables
    Back in the day, disc players did one thing: play CD's. Eventually CD+/-R and CD R/W capabilities were added. Then things got interesting when DVD's arrived on the scene. Players split in two camps. One camp still only played CD's. The other camp--the one that eventually won the public's...
