The Music Player – Then and Now

The very first Record was the phonograph and it was invented in 1877 by Thomas Edison. While other inventors had produced devices that could record sounds, Edison’s phonograph was the first to be able to reproduce the recorded sound. His phonograph originally recorded sound onto a tinfoil sheet wrapped around a rotating cylinder.

And we have come such a long way since then. Although the record player has a very long history, conceptually, the record player has lived through many iterations – from the early phonograph to the turntable, and even up to the modern vinyl revival coinciding with the nostalgia boom, which comes from the resurgence in popularity of older forms of technology and media.
