Subject: Re: Help please! Another question - boomboxes
From: Jerry Van Baren (gerald.vanbaren_at_smiths-aerospace.com)
Date: 2003-07-14


I recently picked up a Sony CFD-S20CP, $90 at Target (US-based retail store
chain). I have not used it a whole lot, but it seems to work well. I
don't know if it understands play lists (I have not tried them, I suspect
it doesn't).
