  • Low-Low end Audio

    This is out of my league, but I thought someone here might have suggestions... my mother is looking for a portable sound system on which she can play music for a gym class for 1st graders (few of them audiophiles, I would guess).

    She used a ~$150 "boom box" CD player, on which the CD player stopped working. My brother and convinced her that instead of spending her time ripping a bunch of CD's, an MP3 player with custom playlists was probably a lot easier. But on what should she play the MP3s?

    Anyone have recommendations for a cheap (<=$100?) docking station-type device? On the priority scale, watts/volume would win over sound quality (Raffi only gets so good...).

    She could play an MP3 player on her existing boom box if it has any type of inputs.

      Thanks. the boom box didn't have any inputs for 2.5mm or RCA.

      She ended up getting an iPod and either a Logitech or Phillips docking station (was looking at both, but I forget which one she chose.) I'm not normally an Apple fan, but in this case I think the iPod was a good choice wince all the peripherals are designed to work with it and it will charge while on the docking station and allow the use of a remote.

        Good deal. I'm sure she'll enjoy it.
