Nice. Much as I'd like one of these, I wonder if it'd play CDs that my kids have had their mitts on.

Always good to see someone who really knows what he's talking about.

-much cheaper version of the series and the reviews are solid. The whole line-up is solid. And retro (like this) and simple is in. In fact the CD player is rather out of style now (for audiophiles it never really caught on).
