Portable CD Players

Philips AZ7883

The Philips AZ7883 portable CD player provides all of the basics and then goes a little further than other models. In addition to being able to play standard compact discs, it has the advanced capability to read CD-Rs (recordable CDs), which are often not readable by conventional CD players. A special foil surface is durable, scratch resistant, and protects the player from extremely high temperatures. This design is super-compact and has a large, bright, very easy-to-read LCD display. The AZ7883 ensures uninterrupted playback with a 45-second Electronic Skip Protection, which works well even during recurring vibrations. Among the many features is the 3-stage Dynamic Bass Boost, which selects the amount of additional bass reproduction up to 8 decibels. When combined with the lightweight headphones, this adds a rich, deep tone at all listening volumes. It comes with car accessories and if its 12-hour playing time isn't sufficient, an AC/DC adapter is provided.
