    My portable cd player just went out on my. It was a Sony Sport discman. I use it for running, riding my mountain bike, working out, etc..

    Anyone have a good recommendation? One that's less than $50.

    dave, have you thought about an mp3 player instead? for about 75 bucks, you can get a player that will store around 50 to 100 songs. no issues with skipping, large song access, etc.

    really, i just don't think discman's are going to be around too much longer. just a thought ...

    I was wondering about the Aiwa linked by Thomas. I had the predecessor to that model, the Aiwa XP-EV501R, and I am ***still very impressed*** by its performance. Here's a year long review I started on it.

    Sony's D-NE series is excellent.

    I recommend you go the MP3 player route. You can get a small flash type 256mb one for $69 after rebate. Just check best buy for the I-River.

    problem is that I have about 300 cds and I don't want to go through my entire catalogue. Plus, my wife also will use this to play her cd's and I don't want to have to rip all her cd's either. I'd rather stay away from the lossy stuff too.
