    i figure since theres a post about headphone, why not plant a Portable CD Walkman post too..

    im looking for something i can take to the Gym, and plays MP3s for a reasonable price.. something not too tooo tooo fancy, but i dont really know what to look for or what brands. (i've never had a walkman before).

    thanks

    my ex had the SP90, i think. it worked fine. the RioVolt's are the only cd/mp3 players i know of. and they've been around for a while. the only thing that makes me wary is that SONICBlue's memory-based mp3 players are generally very poor designs. i had one for all of 2 weeks before it broke and i read about similar cases all over the internet. but as far as i know, the cd-based ones are good.
