I just saw another one of these things, the irock 300W:

   http://www.myirock.com/players/irock300w.htm

It's probably a wussy one like the Emerson you had, but I ordered
one anyway... should be useful at least for hotel rooms when I'm
travelling (I'm tired of the lame speakers on my Vaio) It sounds
OK from a review I found. [1]

It was $29 USD + $8 shipping (shipped it to the 'tute since
shipping to Canada would have been another $29 USD!)
