I need any recommendations I can get for a CD player suitable for walker/joggers.
- moderators, I know I posted similar on another forum, please don't erase, I need all the answers I can get. Thanks

Yep, it's called an mp3 player!

J/K.

Actually, years ago when I was working for Circuit City we had a Panasonic CD player that was damn near indestructible. To demonstrate it, I used to (and I'm NOT exaggerating here) hit it AS HARD AS I COULD while it was playing. Never skipped once in 7 months I worked there.

This was years ago, and it had a 20 second buffer. Cost about $150, though as I recall.

Sorry I have no more recent info, but I would go with something like that.

Look for a "sport" model
They all love to tout their anti-skip #s
45 seconds, 100 seconds, etc.
As with alot of electronic audio, a model here in my Best Buy won't be in your Target

Thanks for the input guys, Ive narrowed it down to a couple of Panasonics and a Sony. All around $90-100 and all promising 80-100 skip protection.
It can't be just an MP3 player, as my wife wants to listen to audiobooks as she powerwalks. However the better of the Panasonics has an MP 3 player and AM/FM radio and it's really slimline. The attraction of the other Panasonic is it has a remote that you can clip on your wrist or lapel, but no radio. - It's amazing what's out there now - a bewildering choice.

I bought my wife ths Sony "not sure of exact model #" but it has cd/am-fm-tv. She commented not long ago how much better it is than her old one as it never skips a beat.
