If you want to, you can post your old tank CD players here and give a description, history, or pictures if you can. I don't know why I like these old buggers so much, they just make me happy. My particular cup-o'-tea are Philips and Magnavox players of the 80's. I have owned 3 of them and still have 2. I have a Magnavox CDB 560 and a CDB 650. I just think that they are cool, and I think they sound good. And when you can get one for less than 20 bucks, why the hell not. Both of mine are Belgium made and weigh in the 15-20 pound viscinity. They have aluminum extruded heat sinks and Coax SPDIF output on the rear. So if you want to use them as a transport, you can. Speaking of the transport, it is a swing arm instead of the cheapy linear tracking devices they use in everything. I believe they use glass instead of plastic lenses for the laser assembely. And another cool thing is they are almost completely gear driven, so belts aren't a major issue here. I just finished listening to Aimee Mann, off the Magnolia soundtrack. I had chills, it was awesome. Reference stuff: NHT 1.5s, Magnavox CDB 650, Magnavox MX931-Pro crap receiver, RCA/Tandy 12" crap ported sub, but I plug the port so as not to hear boomy crappiness.
