Sup guys … I had a Panasonic deck from '97 that just died on me, and am in the market for a new cd player. What I am looking for is a single cd player (cd only, no mp3), with preouts … but in the $300 (CDN) or so range … I know Cliffy is lookin too … so please vote for a brand, and list a specific deck if you know one … heeeelp!
