Worlds First MP3 Player

first MP3 Player
MPMan was the worlds first MP3 player which launched in the spring of 1998. Many believe it was the Diamond Multimedia Rio PMP300. The MPMan was made by Saehan and showed up a couple of months before the Diamond. When first launched the MPMan had 32 Meg of memory built in. If you sent it back to the manufacturer along with a cheque for $76.95 they would upgrade that to a 64 Meg player. That doesn’t seem like a lot of memory these days, but at the time it was good to store a couple of albums on. The MPMan measured 91mm x 70mm x 16.5mm which isn’t too bad of a size for the time. It weighed just over 2Oz.
