Don't be fooled by the low price of the Coby MP-CD455 Portable MP3/CD Player with AM/FM Radio. This is a great-sounding and versatile player that happens to be incredibly affordable. It's perfect on a picnic, at the beach or poolside. (But it's not waterproof so watch those splashes!) It's also great in the kitchen or den.
In addition to playing conventional CDs it can play CD-R and CD-RW discs onto which you've burned your favorite tracks. Because you can fit up to about 200 MP3 files on a standard 700 MB recordable CD you can fit up to about 14 hours of music on a single disc.
The MP-CD455 has the usual play/pause, search, skip, repeat track and repeat all functions you've come to expect on a quality CD player. You can also program it to play tracks in the order you specify. The digital LCD display will help you find the tracks you want.
Of course there's more to life than just CDs. There's always radio! Whether you want to listen to some current tunes on FM or follow the game on AM, radio listening is only the touch of a button away. A built-in antenna pulls in AM broadcasts while a telescopic rod antenna can be extended and adjusted for optimal FM reception.
Whether you're listening to CDs or the radio you'll enjoy great sound thanks to the 100 Hz to 16 kHz range of the MP-CD455's speakers. And if you'd rather listen by yourself you can always plug in a pair or 8 – 32 ohm headphones or earbuds (not included) into the 3.5 mm stereo jack.
