Most of them I see on CraigsList do not have a cd player...is it going to be tough to find a deal on one WITH a cd player?

yep, most recievers just have the internal amp, tuner, and like 5 or 6 inputs for different sources. you'll have to buy like a 5 disk changer or dvd player if you want to play cds

thanks for the info...and sorry to the mods for me making so many Home Audio threads lately, just trying to learn as much as possible so I don't end up with something like an Audiobahn

about the only receivers that come with cd/dvd players built in are the cheap ones that come as part of a HTIB......

The obvious reason most quality receivers don't include built in players is that a good receiver will last you years and years (i've got a receiver at my dad's house that's from the early 80's) and optical drives last a few years at best, and are cheaper to replace than repair.

true, mine is an actual receiver, 50x5 based on onkyo amps

ONKYO'S VERSION (http://www.homecinemachoice.com/reviews/hccreviews/DVDPlayers/Onkyo/OnkyoDR-90B.php)

only difference i see is my toshiba has component video, other than that they look the same

anyways if having an all-in-one unit is important then i will sell you mine;)

u can buy a very cheap cd/dvd player for around 30-50$ used that you can hook up to one just fine, plus they look slick :)

you ever wonder why they call them receivers? ;)

but yeah aside from a radio, they just have inputs. CD players are cheap now anyways, so it's not an expensive add-on. If you are using it for a home theater, you can use your DVD player to save money/space.

If you have a device that already plays CDs and you aren't looking for a high end CD player just use that already existent device....

I would use my PS3 but if I want to listen to a cd while using my PS3, I'm screwed...

Get a cheapo DVD player or CD player....

Get a walkman CD player and a RCA to 1/8 adapter..

Problem solved... ;)

Play around with ones and see which one you like...I have a Sony with a horrific loading time, I've been tempted to run it over more than once...

Since you aren't going for a Audiophile grade reference system you should be fine with doing this....

I have wanted to run over more than one Sony Product before...

I have a nice door stop that used to be a 400 Disk DVD/CD/SACD player..... :mad:
