I really miss having a CD player! I love the Bluetooth, but Amazon Music gives me fits when I make playlists for my phone or Kindle. If I use my Apple 80G IPod, I always have to remember to turn it off when I stop, or it keeps on going --- won't stop where I left off. I really miss being able to jump on ITunes and burn a CD - and for the very rare times that I actually purchase a CD, it bugs me that I can't play it when I get into the car. I have two portable CD players: each one connects via a male-to-male cable from the unit to the mini phone jack on the dash, and a cord that goes from the player to what used to be considered a cigarette lighter in the car. They work, but there is no stable place in my vehicle where I can place the portable CD player - so it jostles when I drive. I will say that the Soul has a great sound system!
