CD players are somewhat less popular nowadays due to the rise in network players, but there's always a need for a good quality budget CD player in most stereo systems - or perhaps even to augment the audio from a home cinema system.

This player from Yamaha is one of the cheapest on the market and combines good quality sound with the handy addition of a USB port. This allows you to playback music stored on a memory stick in MP3 or WMA format. There's also the ability to play back CD-R or CD-RW discs with MP3's too.

Most of us however will stick to just playing CD's on it and for this it's perfect. Wire it into your stereo amplifier with a decent set of phono interconnects and you'll get a good quality sound. Sure, you can get better - but only if you spend more than £200 and that's where this player makes its mark.

For budget we think this is perfect.
