This is a general curiosity question: Why are dedicated CD players so expensive? For ten years now we've been able to find a Discman at Rite-Aid for $19, or a DVD\/CD player at the grocery store for as little as $10. It makes sense that a Discman might be a few bucks more expensive than a DVD player because size and portability constraints make engineering expensive, and of course there's the economics of batch quantities. But for home audio, it's tough to find a dedicated CD player for less than $80. Why is this? And is there a good reason to shell out $80 or more for this when a DVD player will play CDs just the same?
