Hi Everybody,

I could do with a portable cd player, as I do not have a home computer to download MP3 files. And as my manager at work keeps catching me on this site (his problem, not mine), I cannot download from my computer, as the bloody IT manager has blocked everything!!

I have just bought some upgraded Grado headphones from America, so would like a good quality portable cd player to listen to when I am out...

Cheers in advance,

Phil

Thanks for your reply. I have looked for this and it is a discontinued CD player. Do you think it's best to look on Ebay? Or is there another CD player out there.

I would look on my work computer, but the IT bloke has blocked me on that.... We are run by German's, so they are quite tight on security (Joke!)

That not surprise me really....been out a while now.

I would stick to sony though, whatever model they are doing now a day. It's been a long time since I looking in to portable cd player.

I would doubt if technology move on with them as MP3, MP4, MP5 etc....took over so there was no point for them to keep on researching.

Sony made some very good portable cd-players, don't know if they still do.

I have owned an iRiver IMP-900 and it's SQ was to die for. It was extremely thin, very very well built, and lasted for days on end on a single battery charge. The remote that came with it was also very convenient, there wasn't a display on the unit itself to keep it compact, and could be controlled by the small remote. I never should've sold that thing, it was amazing.

A friend of mine used to have an iRiver IMP-550, it sounded just as good as my 900, yet the battery charge didn't last as long, nor did the anti-shock (720 seconds max if believe correctly, versus 1400 something for the 900)

Long story short, if you want a great sounding, well made and durable discman, get an iRiver. All the iRiver discmans are discontinued now, but I'm sure you can find a well looked after model on eBay for a decent price.

Hi Fr0g. I'm afraid that I'm one of those c**** as you put it.

I'm not all bad, and do allow people to use the CDRom on the machine for music, but do lock a lot of things down, so idiots (and in general I'm not talking about anyone here - I'm guessing people here would have a little respect for the equipment they are using) can't continually break things by using limewire, bearsh1te or whatever is this months illegal filesharing tool.

However, there are system performance and legal reasons (because the company doesn't own the CD, the individual does, the company would be prosecuted for illegal copying in the event of an audit...) that we don't want 100Gb of ripped things cluttering up our machine's hard disks, and would prefer that people just bring in a CD wallet and play the CDs directly from the drive.

You would normally find that if you ask your IT guy or department if you can use the CDRom purely for playing music CDs, (s)he will oblige. There's not that many power freak idiots out there that would stop you from doing that...

Rant over...

Thanks for all your replies...

I use computers at work as do Catia design for bosch, and when I get home, the last thing I want to do is use one again! My eyes are shot by then, so prefer to use my ears instead..;-)

I might try and rip my CD's onto the computer at work, but as you all know, being computer people at work, the bloody IT depatments are all nazi's now and block even hard p0rn these days!!

I think it might be best to buy a CD portable and put up with lugging a few CD's around. I have over 600 of them, so my GF will be pleased I'm getting rid of a few of them..

Anyway, thanks for your help..
