Personal CD/MP3 player- Recomendation

Pete

Standard Member
I'm thinking of getting my son a personal cd player with mp3 capability for his xmas, and was leaning towards the Philips exp303 until I discovered it doesn't display track info, which will probably be one of his main considerations. Can anyone recommend a personal cd player that plays in mp3 format, that does display track info.
Thanks.

Hi All, I'm looking for a personal CD player that plays MP3's as well.

I have found the Limit pcd200mp on sale at richer sounds for £49.95

seems like a good price but havent found any spec on it yet... anyone else bought one of these or got any advice on this?

any thoughts appreciated
thanks

well while i'm doin some research on this i thought i might post some of my findings.

excuse the messy nature, but you might find a few useful links.

what i am loooking for:

portable MP3/cd player
audio cd, cdr/rw playback
reasonable album navigation (alphebetically listing all songs on cd is not acceptable)
ID3 tag support -
Artist/album/track display
some shock protection
£50-80

sound reasonable?

also if poss.
cassette player adaptor - its for my girlfriends car stereo
AA nimh battery compatible (i have a charger for these already)
or cigarette lighter power adaptor

so here are a few links...

i was gonna buy this one - till i read this, only bad review i read - pretty
damming though, if track order is important to you
First, it alphabetizes the files in a ludicrous way: it initially orders
alphabetically the files that start with a capital letter, and then orders
the rest of the files. In other words, the file "The Beatles - Back in
USSR.mp3" will play in a completely different location than "the beatles -
can't buy me love.mp3". This quickly becomes a major headache when listening
to mix CDs, unless you have taken care to rename all the files beforehand --
a major undertaking if your mp3 collection is sizeable. Another apparent bug
is that sometimes you have to press the back button three times to go back a
song.
