In 1954, when CEC was established, the audio industry was still in its infancy. For example, the field of drive motors for phono turntables was as yet largely unexplored. CEC became the first company to make turntables in Japan, and their products were highly regarded by music lovers. CEC was one of the leading suppliers of turntables and CD players in the consumer field with major brand OEM customers including Grundig, Marantz, Teac, Sony, Sanyo, Toshiba, Mitsubishi, Alpine, Kenwood, Sharp etc. For CEC, the aim has always been clear - to create superior, high-end audio products; a quality-oriented policy that has served us and our customers well, regardless of market fluctuations. For this CEC have inaugurated in 2011 a new company building, as well as a new production facility in Japan. The first CEC CD player was introduced in 1983. Due to thier analog experience their engineers were able to implement the belt drive system to CD transports. The world's first belt drive transport was born in 1991 - CEC 's TL 1. Since then, CEC has continued to develop and refine belt drive CD transports. A technology for which CEC holds worldwide patent rights.
