One other thought... if you're going to rent a car be aware that on the highways, in tunnels, etc there are speed monitoring cameras and if you get a flash, expect a ticket to arrive at your house in the US... speaking from experience.

Lac Leman is beautiful along with all the scenery. Go on a nice boat tour for an afternoon and get some lake perch for lunch one day.

Vachers is best. The oldest by some way, have nearly all the original pieces from the 1700's.

Audio Vinyl and HiFi Kaufman aren't bad. They are both equipment dealers but on opposite sides of the train station. If you're in that area, might as well just drop in on a few because there's a handful of shops there. Maybe one will know of a fun place to find CDs.
