    Hi

    Not really hi-fi but I'm after a decent quality CD boombox for 100 notes or less. Only afeyr CD and radio and can even live without the radio. Any ideas anyone?

    Got a ""Wharfedale" from Argos and its was such poor quality (build and sound) that it had to go back pronto.

    Slightly DIY solution is to get a cheap portable CD player, a Sonic T amp and then some Tangband W871 3" full range drivers and put it all in a wooden box. You could probably build it smaller than most boom boxes.

    Thanks Simon but was after a more "click on this link to buy" type solution. Its for a relative who is in hospital and needs a non-headphone music solution (own room so no issue of disturbing anyone else).

    this might be an option -

    http://www.parrot.com/uk/products/wireless-speakers/parrot-boombox

    it's bluetooth, so you store your music on your phone or whatever, and bluetooth it to the player.

    it's also got RCA input, so if they haven't got a mobile /laptop or similar you can get a £39.99 dvd player from tesco's and whack it in.

    Thanks bottleneck - that's more like the sort of thing - that with a portable CD player might do the trick.

    Oh no its £150. Hmmm...maybe I will make one up as Simon suggests. The reason i need to go cheap is thereis a high probability that it will get nicked!! Otherwise I would have just gone for a Denon Dm31 or similar unit
