Yes, this CD player did have a remote. I have purchased three of these and only the last one did NOT have a remote. ????

I found that by stopping the player with the remote that it would start an MP3 CD where I left off. I guess I'll try to find a remote at Best Buy to purchase separately.

You'd have to get a separate cd player case for that; nothing on the player itself.

No, there is no clip or belt loop on this. You'd have to put in your own type of pouch or secure it otherwise.

I have tried to use headphones but they don't seem to be capatible. I have done some research on the subject and it seems the port that is on the device is for speakers not earphones. as far as external speakers, I would think that they are available but have to be bought separate.

The player has no external speaker but you can purchase mp3 speakers at Best Buy. Use an audio cable to connect. There are Jams, Insigna, Beats pill, JBL, and many others.

There was a remote control in the older versions, but that appears to have been discontinued. I didn't really miss it until now, though.

Question

Display

Does the display show what track you are on? If so, I think I could resume an audiobook at almost the same place if I remembered or wrote down the track I stopped on. Similarly, does it show the radio station you are on?

yes, the display will show what track youre on but not it wont show what radio station youre on. as far as remembering where you left off on your book, just push the pause button when you want to stop reading and push it again when you want to start again and the audiobook will pick up where it left off. you don't have to remember.

answer 4
The display shows track information when playing discs. You can certainly select a particular track and you can skip through a track. It shows the radio station frequency when operating the radio. When using the radio, the headphone cord is the antenna for the radio, based on my experience, so the radio won't work well without a cord plugged into the headphone jack.

You have to note the track # it is on, then turn it off. When you turn the player on again, SKIP to the track you want.

I don't think you can. The player has an energy saving feature built in where it will shut itself off after a few minutes of no play. You can pause your place and try to resume it within a few minutes, but if you stop the disc or power the player off, it starts at the beginning.

The pause function will allow you to pause at a certain spot and resume by playing the disc. If you stop the disc completely you will need to start the track over and fast forward to the spot you left.
