I'm looking for a cd player to replace the one I have when I inhereited my parents 13yr old Sony system this Christmas. I believe the laser is shot or scratched in it and the carousel is glitchy.

I'm looking for a good player. I don't need a 100 disc changer. Heck, I'd be happy with only the one disc. Which ones are good to get.

These days when a component gives up, it goes in the trash. Electronic and TV repair shops, etc have all but gone away.

That said, get the cheapest unit you can find that does what you want and has the features you need. I would recommend getting a DVD player instead of a CD only player....even the cheap $30 DVD's at Fry's Electronics and like places read and play cd as well as cd-r, cd-rw, and mp3 discs.

Also, something like the xbox and other game consoles also will play cd's and dvd's. If you're in the market for something similar, they can also do double duty.
