Okay, I know how lame this sounds but, without immersing myself in the world of new digital/download/streaming, etc., I want to know if it's still possible to buy a reasonable home-CD player that employs its own amp.

What about those Bose units that were popular a while ago? It looks as though I'll be staying close-to-home from now on because of health concerns. I want to be able to listen, and to play along with, my huge library of music CDs, but would like decent sound-quality.

Thanks,

Bose still sells the Wave System that plays single CDs.

Best Buy has a Sharp 5 CD shelf stereo system for $179

I'm pretty sure that most single disc DVD players will also play music CDs. Although they may not play CDRs with mp3s. I recently bought a couple of Sony players. 33.00 each.

I downloaded MusicBee, a free media player.  

https://getmusicbee.com/

Then I ripped my CDs to my computer.  I have 1,567 tracks at easy access.  

I also loaded all the tracks to a Lexar 32GB Jump Drive and can play them in my pickup truck.
