In general, the older the better. Newer models tend to vibrate or start up with high speed.

Get a CD or DVD Rom Drive that has more than one Button....the CD/DVD Rom drives that only have an Eject Button will be useless as they need a CPU to work...hope this helps

Add a play/skip button to your standalone CD-ROM Drive

The best standard CD is still considered to be the SONY SCSI, but of course, not IDE.
Sony or Philips transports seem to be the choice of high end players. Using old CD drives is not without the issue that they are old. Mechanical. Wear and lens gets dirty. CD transports got better servo when DVD came out. So, not sure this is still a valid path. Putting in your own DA, analog and improving the p/s on a generic CD player may be a better project unless you have a specific form-factor you are trying to build.
