There's a small selection on Amazon, but the reviews are a bit hit and miss. Cheers.

I think you should just buy an old walkman with deadstock earphones included. Plenty on YJP. Don't buy a remote control model or the cable will be too short and you'll need an an extender cable too.

ive inherited a few pairs of old Rogers BBC speakers, there’s might not be the best time to sell, but is there a marketplace or forum that would be best to advertise them?

Just got my late fathers B&W DM4's and Yamaha CR620's working that he bought new from his first real pay back in '72.
Caps are all good on the CR620 but the controls crackle and one circuit doesn't work that supposedly should prevent a loud pop when switching on the speakers.

Anyway, anyone can recommend me a good CD player to go with it? Something cheap preferably but I assume you can the old top dog CD player for little money nowadays? Might be wrong in that.

My barber, who is a vinyl collector, swore by one he used to have in their shop that was an old Technics. No idea what the name was but it was a wooden style.

Sony CDP-991 is cheap but kick ass. '89 model. Back when CDPs were indescructible Been using one for 7 years or so..

personally now, at this moment listening to Milli Rock (Masterpiece version, DJ KIXXXX)
