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).

Sony web page;sid=_PHX0gw96TrX-jMu6__d2UMtkYsBOiTUjUE=?CatalogCategoryID=InQKC0%2eNs7sAAAD2LNuHHFC1&ProductID=emMKC0%2eNWYoAAAD2L_%2eHHFC6&Dept=pa
(or go to and search for CFD-S20CP if you don't want to paste
three lines of URL)
