Basic MP3 player with in-built speaker?

Hi all,
My grandfather likes listening to songs but he hates using earphones. I am looking for a MP3 player with just basic play and stop functions and probably 1 GB of memory with in-built speakers. Does anyone know if MP3 players with in-built speakers are available anywhere? If not MP3, even a CD player with in-built speakers would do. I think cassette (tape) players are obsolete now but if someone knows if they are still being made and sold (with in-built speakers), please do let me know.

Most mp3 speakers are lousy.

Is this for mobility or stationary? If just for music listening then I probably get a ducking station for the mp3. Just like mp3 they come in all price ranges.

I might comment on the 1G. not very much, unless this mp3 has a cartridge memory slot.

Its for stationary use only. And I doubt he will want more than about 50 songs to listen to at a given point of time. That is why I thought even 1G might be a lot.

Here are some speakers for mp3...

In case you can't find a mp3 with speaker (they do have them). Since it is stationary..then I think either speakers or docking station should do. I am like Grandpa; I don't care for ear buds phone either but I don't mind over the ear headphone though. I wear those all the time. They are loose but yet secure enough.

Nod to this.

I use an iPod dock and it's quite nice to be able to keep it charged and more. Very handy thing.
