    AMW P80L? I know it plays WMA files but not sure how extensive its compatibility is with these files is. I'm assuming they vary in bitrate like mp3s.

    Its possible the Orbit player in maplins sale for £39.99 will also play them as thats basically the same as the P80L in an uglier case.

    Hi Bob

    The DVD S35's are back on ebay at £36.50 + £11 delivery + vat, which makes them about £56 if you want one, although I think they're refurbs. I have an S35 and it definitely handles WMA and MP3. The company behind them (Mikrolive) sell on Amazon too, which is where I bought mine from. Came in good time, is in excellent condition and is MR.

    Seems a nice price for a SE35 but is that actually sold as new or secondhand. Do you get a year's guarantee on it? Whatever I'm not knocking it, excellent players with an excellent picture.

    There's a guarantee mentioned but I can't remember exactly what it is. Agree about the quality - have one myself!

    Hello and thanks for the replies, after a bit of messing around with a few mp3 discs I have found that it will be to hard to navigate them because the player will not be connected to a display:clown: . The idea was to have a few albums on one disc so cut down on the disc swapping. To cut a long story short I have bought a cheap dvd player of ebay to use as a CD player:blush: (not a lot of silver CD players about). I will probably upgrade to a real CD player later in the year.;)
