Here is a new vertically oriented CD player from Marantz. The CR101 looks like a programmable thermostat. The device comes with a pair of remote controls: a mini 8-button remote and a bigger size of remote control. Priced at $331, the CD player also boasts a 2.1ch (10W sub and 2x 5W speakers) with AM/FM tuner. Marantz’s CR101 will be available in Japan later this month.
