    • Best answerThe Insignia NS-P5113 |SKU:9139826 Portable CD Player’s anti-skip electronic shock protection (ESP) system prevents this unit’s laser beam pickup from skipping or missing parts of a song during active use. Active use includes activities such as walking, jogging, running, or exercising while holding the portable player in hand. The Insignia CD player will also be subject to excessive vibration if it is used in a moving vehicle. Under normal circumstances, a CD player’s optical pick-up mechanism would be unable to focus on continuously reading the playback disc during active use for enjoyment of your favorite songs. However, the Insignia CD Player incorporates an automatic electronic buffer system that allows it to store up to 240 seconds of music on an audio CD or 480 seconds of music on an MP3 disc into memory so that the Insignia portable does not skip portions of a track while the user is engaged in active use while carrying the CD player. The buffer time of 240 or 480 seconds allows the CD player enough time in most instances of active use to recover playback of the disc should it experience an unexpected violent movement that would normally cause disruption or stoppage of disc playback. Please note that electronic shock protection is not needed if the Insignia CD player is used during a non-active use such as listening to the unit on your sofa at home. You can disable the ESP for audio CD’s when appropriate, but not for MP3 discs. This unit’s FM tuner is not affected by the built-in anti-shock protection system. Good Luck.

    • Best answerNo, portable CD players do not have built-in speakers. However, you can always buy a speaker or pair of speakers and plug it/them into the headphone jack, just make sure whatever you by has the standard (or smaller) jack, which I believe is 3.5mm.
