This stylish CD player lets you display cover art like a picture frame

Vinyl records have had a revival in recent years, but ironically, the younger CDs seem to have almost gone out of fashion. Not only have streaming services and digital collections (purchased legally, of course) rendered the limited capacity of audio CDs pointless, the physical medium doesn’t offer distinct audio flavors like old-school vinyl records. Despite this, CDs continue to be manufactured and sold, and there are people who still very much preserve their library of collected albums in this disc format. It’s definitely possible to still hear them, but most CD players these days come in big boxes that are left at home, or peripherals that plug into computers. However, this minimalistic CD player offers the freedom to listen to this type of music anywhere and also gives you the opportunity to show off that CD’s cover art, just like album covers in music apps.

Digital music created the concept of album covers as a digital counterpart to the old CD cases. It’s a visual experience that you lose when listening to a CD unless you have the case in front of you at all times. You definitely can’t view it on the device you’re playing the CD with, especially if it’s a portable CD player that covers everything to create a compact form factor for when you’re on the go.

The CP1 CD player breaks from form with a device that is in itself a minimalist work of art. The player’s sleek, boxy shape looks like a picture frame or enlarged Polaroid-style photograph. The center of the device is transparent, showing the bed on which the CD would lie and rotate. It’s striking because of its bold transparency, but it’s also the perfect place to put the CD case. Essentially, the player allows you to create the experience of album art in physical form.

This device is more than just a CD player, it also becomes a decorative piece, especially when you hang it on the wall. It has its own built-in battery, so you don’t have to worry about ugly wires until it’s time to charge. Of course, with the same battery, you can take it with you wherever you go, so you can always listen to your favorite CDs. There’s a 3.5mm jack for connecting headphones and speakers, but you can also enjoy the music through wireless audio devices thanks to built-in Bluetooth support.

This photographic CD player does not offer advanced features to play this physical medium. In fact, it even takes a small step backwards by requiring you to manually insert cover art to get the same effect as album covers in music apps. However, it refines how the appreciation of music goes hand in hand with other treats for the senses too, in a very elegant way that proudly displays the artistry of a CD.
