RCA priced some of their players at $499.95 when first introduced--
this was the retail price of the SFT100 in March 1981 and the SJT400
in October 1983. The SGT250 was introduced in May 1982 at a price of
$399.95, at which time RCA reduced the remaining stock of SFT100
players to $299.95. After RCA canceled player production prices began
to plummet. A brochure from October 1984 lists these prices:
SJT090 $149, SJT100 $159, SJT200 $169, SJT300 $229, and SKT400 $249.
CED disc titles commonly retailed from $14.98 to $39.98. The $14.98
price was rare and used only for some cartoons, sports, and documentaries.
Movies ranged from $19.98 to $34.98 for 1-disc titles, and $34.98 to
$39.98 for 2-disc titles. The 4-disc "Jesus of Nazareth" boxed set was
originally priced at $99.98. One 2-disc title, "Conan the Barbarian,"
was priced at $44.98, but the backlash from customers and dealers
resulted in this being the only title released at that price.
