CD player finally died - looking for some advice

(hoping this is the right place to ask this)

My 2006 Focus CD player (single CD) died a couple months ago. Made some dying droid noises, and now won't play anything.

I've seen a few places online selling replacement players for cheap (and apparently need to have Ford activate it as well), but that still doesn't solve my other issue - no MP3 player connectivity.

Is there a good replacement (and not that expensive) stereo for my Focus that has MP3 player connections? Is there a way to modify mine to handle an MP3 player (and just forgo CDs entirely like the rest of the civilized world?)?

Any advice would be great. This seems like a forum filled with knowledgeable enthusiasts!
