Portable CD player

Not sure how many people actually use CD players any more... but I'm curious as to whether anybody knows what cd players produce the best sound. I'm 19, and thus fairly short on money, and also fairly ignorant as far as issues of audio quality go. I'm using Sennheiser eh350 headphones, so not top of the line, so I'm not sure how much of a difference various cd players would make.

For those who are more knowledgeable about digital players, is there such a thing any more as a digital player with 20 or more gigs that DOESN'T have video support, which I really have no desire to pay for? I know the Rio Karma is a 20 gig one with flac support, but are there others?

Thanks for any help.

I'd go with an MP3 player if only for the fact that it won't skip.

Re: Portable CD player

go to your local goodwill & get a used cd walkman... I saw a very slim sony cd walkman with memory buffer to resist skipping & remote control & headphones for $8.99 the other day. maybe you can find something similar used where you live. Then use that until you save up enough money to get a good mp3-style walkman that also plays lossless. Again, look in the used stores for last year's model and save something like 50% off the new price.

Re: Portable CD player

Hell, I found a walkman in a local shop and since the "craze" is ipods and other mp3 players, I got a walkman that plays lossless for about 20 bucks *with tax*
