Atari Jaguar CD (J8800)

In 1995, Atari released the 2x speed CD Rom add on for their Jaguar unit. The Jaguar CD was manufactured by Philips and sold for $149.99 USD. The pack ins were a Tempest 2000 Soundtrack, Myst Sampler, the Vid-Grid and Blue Lightening games. The system ran at 352.8K/second with 210 milliseconds access time and allowed for Full FMVs at 24 FPS. Atari used a non-standard format to write CDs so that any attempt to copy CDs are presumed to fail as the encrypted data will be read as an error. By playing audio CDs in the Jaguar CD unit, you could treat yourself to a light show.
