This may seem slightly off-topic, or else not. I recently misplaced (!) the trusty old Sony Walkman CD player that I've used for the past 10+ years. Looking at the newer models, I see mostly units that offer powerful anti-skipping circuitry. Those circuits buffer the sample data in RAM, and the last I read, the Big New Thing was to use data compression on that data so as to tolerate nearly constant physical movement (jogging, etc.) without raising the cost of the hardware too much. I'd like to know whether anyone here can recommend a current-model, relatively inexpensive "Walkman"-style CD player that offers high quality audio outputs without that sort of data compression. Must be small, have a headphone output and be able to run on batteries. If there are any sonic special features such as "Mega Bass," they need to be fully defeatable. Many thanks.
