A very good CD Player.

 

My granddaughter received this Sony CD player for a Christmas gift. This replaced her other cheaper one purchased at WalMart for $12.99 which stopped working. Luckily it is one that many of her friends also has. Except they chose the cheaper version ...

Sony Network Walkman NW-S203F

 

Spode takes this sport orientated Sony player for a test run.
