Sell Price

CD Player is an Electronics item that can be acquired through shoplifting. It can be sold to (but not purchased at) the Super Store.

The CD Player was one of the items available at the official launch of Torn on 15 November 2004, having been introduced during the Torn City Beta.


The CD Player can be obtained through the "Electronics Stall" shoplifting crime at any crime experience level, but is most common when a plyer's Crime Experience is lower. It can also be found through city finds and can be traded between players.


Listening to a CD player converts energy to happiness. There is no usage cooldown and there are three different options for how much energy is to be used.

CD Player Usage [1]
Action Energy Used Happiness Gained
Listen to a Song 1 energy 12-18 Happiness
Listen to an Album 3 Energy 42-63 Happiness
Listen to an Audio Book 5 Energy 80-120 Happiness

The CD Player is an option to spend extra energy that is not divisible by five or ten which would otherwise be unused. These bits of energy can be obtained from a faction energy drink perk in the Voracity branch, use of Book : Higher Daddy, Higher!, or from using the one or three energy options on an MP3 Player, CD Player, Television, or Game Console.

Historical Notes

Prior to an update in June 2021 that changed several Electronics items, the CD Player had no use.

The CD Player's description called it a "Sony Discman" until 30 May 2019, when the description was updated [2] to refer to the item as a "home stereo system," which matched the item image.

In the past there was a Market Stall shoplift crime explicitly for CD Players. It was consolidated into the Electronics Stall shoplift crime.
