Each of my kids has a CD player in their room that they like to listen to music when they go to bed. I think we've been through about 5 cd players of varying quality and brands and all of them have failed at some point. So, we now have 5 radios, some of them have tape players - but they're mostly useless for their intended purpose. Two of the kids have birthdays coming up and rather than flush another $50 or so down the drain trying to get another CD player that will last a year, I'm wondering what ideas you guys have as an alternative. I would say the budget is $100 or less and ease of use would be paramount (has to be manageable for my wife and/or children).
I've thought about something like a sqeezebox, but that misses on both the budget and ease of use side of things.
Also, if anyone has experience with a particular model of boombox that they've had good luck with, I'm all ears as well.
