Music on Hold, Digital Player

We've been using a CD/MP3 player, with a CDROM for our music on hold. Needless to say, after awhile running 7/24 for a couple of uses in an infinite loop it's starting to act up. I was thinking of moving to an MP3 player instead (no moving parts) this time. But we'd need one with an external power supply and one that could loop one track.

Not to mention come back up into the proper state (looping the one track) in case of a power outage. Can anyone recommend a good player that has these features? We don't need much memory in it, it's just one track.

I thought of using a sound card in a server (they tend to stay running long), but then I'd be into the "how do I keep it running" challenge. If I go that route, does anyone have a background software/service that will play .wav or .mp3 on a server out it's sound card?

Thanks all.
