Top 10 Best CD Players with FM Tuners
for December 2022

CD players have been a staple of home entertainment systems for decades. But, with the rise of streaming music services like Spotify, Pandora, and Apple Music, most CD players have been relegated to the attic or closet. While CDs aren't quite dead yet, they're somewhat outdated, so a CD player with FM tuner might be a better choice.

A CD player with FM tuner (or 'radio') allows you to listen to radio, as well as play music CDs. It's the ideal way to listen to your favorite music, podcasts, audiobooks, and the news. Plus, you get all the functionality you'd expect from a CD player, like the ability to pause, rewind, and fast-forward.

Our testing Lab evaluates CD players for performance, including sound quality, features, and ease of use. We also evaluate ease of use, including how easy it is to set up, use, and maintain. Our top pick in this category is the Sony CDX-GT600, which won our test for having great sound quality, ease of use, and useful features.
