Dimensia MCD145 Compact Disc Player

RCA Dimensia MCD145 Compact Disc Player


  • This unit replaced the original Dimensia MCD140 CD Player in 1985. The digit buttons are removed from the front panel, but their function is still available on the remote control.
  • Also in 1985, RCA introduced the Digital Command Component series. The fundamental component of this "RCA Audio System" is the MSR140 Stereo Receiver, which provides system control functionality for audio components only, with no need to purchase a Dimensia television. This Digital Command Component series includes the MCD141 CD Player, which is identical to the MCD145 except for the styling of the unit, and the lack of a headphone jack and headphone volume control on the front panel of the unit.
  • In 1987 the MCD245 CD Player in the all-black 1987 styling replaced the MCD145.
