    Unusual problem

    I need to play a mp3 over and over again 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on my kitchen worktop, for reasons I won’t go into.
    So far I have burnt this mp3 onto a recordable CD and played it on a CD player. But the player has broken down, not surprisingly because it is based on a mechanical process. What I need is something electronic that will bypass the electric motor that performs the repeat function in the CD player.
    I have tried using a mp3 player connected to speakers to do this but the sound emitted is far too low. Also the mp3 player will stop playing the track when its battery has run out. I have a Philips SA2RGA04SN02 GoGear Raga 4GB MP3 Player.

    My question is:
    How can I solve this problem?
    Another thing to keep in mind is that I cannot use a device like a desktop computer because it is too bulky. I need the device to be compact i.e. not occupying much space especially on a kitchen worktop, which is where I want the device.
    Please help me solve this problem.
    Thank you.

    I would use my WAK3300 and repat playing the MP3 from my Netgear NAS.

    I have been researching this topic and have come up with the following very cheap possible solution. But I am not sure that it will work. So can someone check the following idea out.
    I will first start by saying that I forgot to say that the volume of the music that I need is relatively low equivalent to hearing music to a volume level that will allow you to have conversation with ease.
    I buy either one of the following amplified portable speakers. I still have to decide which to buy.
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/White-Portab...uctDescription

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Konnect-Port...uctDescription

    I also buy a dual USB charger that is surge protected.
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Masterplug-S...ef=pd_sim_ce_1

    I then plug my Philips MP3 player in one usb port and plug the buddy portable speaker or Konnect in the other USB port of the dual USB charger. When I switch on the MP3 player, I select the charge and play option. I was surprised that when I selected this option this morning, my Philips MP3 player started to play while it was being charged. I thought this was not possible. Am I right in thinking it is possible for my Philips MP3 player to play music while it is being charged?

    Will this setup work ?

    I didn't know you wanted to use the MP3 player, you didn't use it before when playing the CD player.
    Sorry, I don't have a solution with the MP3-player
