What should you look for in a portable radio CD player?

There are a wide number of different models available on eBay, so when it comes to selecting a portable radio CD player, there are a few things to think about:

  • If you want to carry the portable stereo player around with you regularly, check the dimensions and weight of the player to ensure it is easily transportable.
  • The operating buttons vary in size, shape and position, so if you like larger buttons, or would prefer the controls are located on the top of the machine, read the description carefully before choosing your model.
  • If you plan on using the batteries to power the CD player, take a look at how many batteries are needed, and the size required.
What features are available on a portable radio CD player?

Depending on where and when you plan on using your player, there are a number of features that you might find useful. Before choosing a new portable radio CD player, consider if you need the following:

  • A display showing the CD track being played.
  • Bluetooth connectivity.
  • Cassette deck.
  • DAB and FM/AM radio.
  • USB or AUX ports.
  • An earphones port.
What other functionality could you enjoy?

There are variations to compact discs or CDs. All portable radio CD players will be able to read music-filled CDs bought from retailers; others will also be able to read CD-R or CD-RW discs which are bought blank, then have music or audio recorded independently on them. Assisting clarity of playback, some CD players also have skip protection, meaning that a data buffer system is in-built, making sure that playback will not be interrupted when the disc can't be read due to movement. Not all portable CD players offer these functions, so be sure to check the manufacturer's website for full details before purchase.
