    Default MP3 players

    Wife wants to get our son a cd player/stereo for his birthday, I have instead suggested an MP3 player and a spare set of PC speakers I have in the shed.

    I'm looking at one of these

    Any input?

    I guess a ipod is out of the question?
    If you go the mp3 speaker route might I suggest you invest in decent speakers, your spare set must be spare for a reason and music sounds bad with crappy speakers.


    BTW love the sig, Hole in the Sky is a awesome song.

    An ipod would mean itunes, so no.

    Plus, hes only 6...or 7, So no use spending much on it, Its bound to be broken and lost.

    Decent speakers cost a couple grand and require an amp, so hell no.

    The set of creative 2.1's I have will do him fine. As rubbish as creative and logitech gear is it is still marginally better then the $80 cd player at the warehouse,

    Meh, I've not yet heard a set of Logitech speakers worthy of listening to music.

    Music was never made to be pumped tinnie little plastic speakers and a tiny overdriven sub.
