Summary: I brought this few days ago. Had examined another cd player such as those MP3 + CD intergated model in the choices. Had noticed in the Sony web page that this model ceased production now. But I finally decided to buy this. It's very light weight and very compact. Size is only little bigger and thicker than a CD case. Wonderful Its build is good. Battery using the Sony Stamina which is also being used in other Sony portable models. Long last enough for a day use.
