Crosley Vinyl Record Players

Crosley is no newcomer to home audio equipment.  In 1920, the company introduced one of the first affordable home radios, the Harko, which cost only $7 (at the time, the average cost of most home radios was $100 or more!).  In 2014, Crosley is still making high quality audio components, with a vintage eye for design, while incorporating the newest technology such as iPod docks and mp3 capabilities.

Many people choose the Crosley Cruiser due to its space saving form factor.  No larger than a standard suitcase, this unit can attractively sit on a shelf in your home while in use, and be closed for easy storage.  When playing LPs, the record is actually a bit larger than the unit itself.

The Crosley Cruiser is a versatile unit, capable of playing 33 1/3, 45, and 78 RPM records, perfect for your favorite new releases, or if you’d like to dig back into Mum & Dad’s collection.  The unit is belt-driven, thus repairable in the event something goes wrong.

Sound quality of the Crosley Crusier Briefcase Style Vinyl Turntable

The speakers output a reasonably high sound quality, considering the smaller form factor.  While many users would expect a more “tinny” sound, that hasn’t been the case at all in our testing.  The factory speakers could probably be a bit louder, though you can always add additional speakers, or add the Crosley record player to your homes surround sound system via RCA connectors.
