Parasound Zcd CD + MP3 Player Preview


The Parasound Zcd is a very targeted CD player and, frankly, it probably isn't targeted at you. The entire Z line is built around the idea that you'll be building a large rack of gear and need to get the best performance in the least amount of space....

A CD player with a 3.5mm input and USB port with MP3 playback? For home theater it doesn't really make sense. But with 24-bit, 192kHz-capable DACs, integrated preamp, and a $400 price tag, the Parasound Zcd is an intriguing solution for industry...

No A/V Input!


I'll keep it because the DVD player and TV modes do work and it's portable but I'll have to look elsewhere for a monitor.

Nice portable TV and DVD player. Local (So Cal) 1 day delivery

Only one egg because this unit was bought primarily as a portable video monitor. The listed specs here state A/V in/out and the product picture shows a switch on the right side, in front of the antenna which, I assumed, is the A/V in/out select but the...

CD Doesn't Feed.


I do like the deck, but the cruddy CD problem and the dirt poor customer service ruined it for me.

Red = no night glare ; Has lots of connection options

Almost right away I began having problems with the CD reader. Something is failing to instruct it to feed in the CD's when I go to put a new one in ; Boss support was miserable at best, it took over a week for them to get back to me, matter of fact it...

Coby Portable DVD Player / DTV


If you're looking for a truly versatile portable DVD player / DTV this unit will fit the bill.

I am extremely pleased with this unit to date. It's everything I needed and more. I'm getting 3 hrs and 20 min out of full charge which is more than I expected. The resolution is actually 640 X 234 and makes a sharp picture for it's 9"size. I purchased...

works well for the price ”


When you play CD's at a low volume, there is a fuzzy background sound, but when you turn the volume up that sound disappears. I am a little disappointed though that my USB port didn't last more than a couple hours ( I've never been able to use it)...
