- typical personal cassette player

The "personal" stereo system has been one of the major and obvious steps in the evolution of audio. But one of the main men behind the evolution Shu Ueyama of Sony, states that this invention was purely accidental. The first personal stereo design occured at Sony in 1979, when the tape recorder division were pressed into making a new device quicker to boost slowing profits in it's sector. Their invention was a small cassette player capable with stereo playback that also included a pair of headphones. Sony soon released how it would sell, and Sony founder Akio Morita was soon eager to market it. By March 24, 1979 the design was completed and the marketing campaign started. Therefore the personal stereo was born. Sony soon named the device the 'walkman', and it was always the best selling personal cassette player. Nowadays the cassette player is slowly being eliminated by new technologies such as CD and Mp3.
