    I'm looking for an MP3 player, or equivalent device, that has a power
    socket. I want to plug a wall wart power supply into 120 volt power so
    that the player doesn't need batteries. My application is for playing
    on-hold messages for phone systems. The player would run continuously.

    An ordinary MP3 player would be fine, except that I can't find one with
    a power jack. I'm using portable CD players for this now, but they have
    moving parts that wear out after a few months of continuous play.

    I could get out the soldering iron and modify an MP3 player, but I'm
    selling these to customers and don't want the reliability and liability
    issues I might encounter with modified equipment. Price would
    (preferably) be under $100. I only need about 10 minutes of play time,
    so capacity isn't an issue.

    This seems like a simple thing, but I haven't been able to find a player
    with a power jack at a reasonable price. Any suggestions would be
    greatly appreciated.

  2. Why not use a small Creative Muvo or Nano player and connect the
    battery-contacts to a 1.5V AC transformer?
