I need a good portable cd player to use in a classroom situation for music and poetry - most are not loud or clear enough to reach the back of the class effectively. I had a powerful old Philips, but it died tonight - any recommendations? I don't want to pay much more than 40-50 quid.

You need what the kids call boom boxes. Get one that has tape capability, too. Have you checked the suppliers of schools? Might be worth a shout to the 'tech' people at a few schools near you.

Alex, I have used a Sony (they retail about $60 Canadian). If I wanted to improve it substantially, I'd add two more speakers. The built-in ones have their limitations at the loud end in that they distort. For some music these days that's a help, but I don't think that's what you're looking for. It would be worth your while perhaps to have a boo around the various shops. And maybe a few calls to music teachers in some high schools. Best of luck to you.

Coomber, in Worcester make CD and cassette players specifically for this. Details here:-
Coomber electronics
You can play guitar or use a mic through them too.

Buy a cheap 'walkman' style CD player (supermarket, around 15 squid), and a cheap practice amplifier. That way, when one component breaks you don't automatically lose the lot.

I daren't put my opinion of Coomber equipment into words... I've had them brought to me in the vain hopes I can effect a repair... they only sell them to educational establishments, who seem not to know any better.

If a pawn shop is near you, look at the stuff they have. I have seen some pretty good buys at one here.
