Customer Reviews

Easy to use and has great sound quality.
YahGonz
It's a great vinyl player and if all you want is to recreate that warm feeling of listening to a record, crackles and all, I couldn't recommend this enough.
Leigh Attwood
Took it back , got another one, it didn't work either.

Okay, so I've been, for about 6 months now, debating whether or not to purchase this turntable, and I have a feeling that is the case with a lot of people. For starters, I'm a musician, and I record music regularly, always trying to achieve a quality sound. When I read the reviews of people who claim to be hearing horrible sound and that the turntable is poorly made and cheap, I was constantly turned off to the idea of buying this. Long story short, my dad works in sales and had enough points on a rewards website to get one of these guys. We finally decided to go for it since it was basically free. The turntable just arrived in the mail and I'm currently listening to Dark Side of The Moon on it. Let me first say that it's not comparable to having four bose bookshelf speakers in each corner of the room, but seriously, this thing does sound good. For someone who just wants to get into vinyl and experience that warm crackle and unique tangibility that comes with playing records (which I think is about 95%+ percent of everyone looking to buy this), then this turntable is absolutely perfect for you. The sound is no where near bad, the volume can get high enough to really fill a medium size room, it looks great (not cheap), it's easy to use, and you can bring it around with you unlike a whole sound system. Bottom line is this: If you don't already have a major sound system then chances are you're not going to get one because that's not your passion. It's very easy to get caught up in bad reviews on here and then think you're looking for something more than you really are. If you are someone who wants to listen to records casually, maybe with a small gathering of friends inside a decent sized living room, or even alone in your own room, this is all you need. It's perfect for that, and don't let the bad reviews fool you- the sound is GOOD. For the money that you pay for this, you're getting a good deal.

Color Name: Tan Verified Purchase
So i got the unit and put some records on ...
1. Sound
The sound is mediocre.It is reminiscent of the middle 50's to late 60's low end phonographs. Tone adjustment is a single pot type that ranges from low to high, bass is questionable.
2. Turntable
This is all plastic, the tone arm has no weight adjustment for the audiophile collectors and is not a quality arm, the speed switch is of low end quality (3 position slider type)
3. Case
It is a good solid wood type looks and feels good, Hardware is mid line quality.
4. USB
The system works as advertised however there is a lag time between the player speakers and play through on the computer which , if the player volume is up will give you an echo, this is not recorded, mearly a time difference between the player and computer. The player tone control does not effect the recording on the computer as it is a direct thru put from the tone arm to USB to computer.
5. questions
why is there no headphone or external speaker jack?
why is there no kickstand to hold the top open, i had to add one.
instead you have to remove it or lay it all the way back down.
Product is worth maybe $100 in todays market
The plus is that you can listen to records without having to patch into a separate audio system, it is a "portable record player" Plug and play!!!

Let me tell you a story. Recently, I went on a road trip up and down the west coast. In a small city known as San Francisco, I came across a record store, alas, it was the famous Rasputin! Marvelous music abounded everywhere, the earthly delights, it was paradise of rare form.

Since then, I have returned to my humble abode and realized that I do not possess a record player nor have I ever owned one (seeing as my birth was a decade after the 70s). Thus began my holy quest, many retailers have I visited and many forums have I searched for wisdom and an answer.

Well...

One learns soon that the Crosley name is well-spoken of in this trade. One also learns soon that record players are a dying breed. Golly! This is where the Crosley CR249 comes in. This behemoth of a record player also provides a future-proof USB connection, thus allowing one to interface it with a modern age contraption known as the Personal Computer and digitize those wondrously rare LPs that have never seen the laser light of CD form.

Hooray, I yelled at the top of my lungs. And for those desiring a more vintage look, Crosley offers this in tan. If I could trade this in for tan, I would, but I can't so I won't but in the end I am still content and extremely pleased with my purchase.

PROS
- case is fully portable with handle, like an oversized briefcase
- dynamic range speakers put out decent sound
- USB interface
- 3 SPEEDS
- cables and software are included

CONS
- lack of outputs (only USB and an AUX IN)
- speakers are not for audiophiles

If you are in the market for a very well made basic record player with USB output that is also SIMPLE to use, then this is wonderful product to start with. If you already have great speaker system and receiver, you may want to choose another record player w/ USB that offers more output options.

Color Name: Tan
One's satisfaction with this turntable will depend on how exactly it will be used. If you're looking for high-quality sound reproduction through the internal speakers, well---it's not going to happen! The retro styling (and retro sound) of this unit is perfectly acceptable if you're hosting a vintage 1950's style sock hop in your living room and using it to play records from that era. But if want really high-quality audio, select a dedicated turntable that you can plug into your existing stereo system.

However, what I'm using the player for is the transfer of old recordings to the computer (using the USB port) so that I can burn CDs of my old records. And this machine works admirably for this purpose. Again, if you're a real audiophile you'll probably want to purchase a much higher-quality (and more expensive) turntable, but I think for the average consumer this unit does a very acceptable job.

(I should add that while this record player will play 33s, 45s, and 78s, a 78 rpm needle is not included. Now, such a needle is available for this unit from third-party sellers for about twenty dollars. I haven't bought one yet, but plan to do so. DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES play 78s on this machine without changing the needle first! You'll get very poor results---and it's really bad for the records as well.)

The machine includes Audacity editing software to convert the recorded sound into files for your computer. I'm not at all technically savvy, and quite honestly I was a bit intimidated at the thought of figuring out how to use the Audacity programme. The software comes with only the most basic user's manual, but complete technical instructions can easily be found on the web---there are even YouTube videos that show how to use the features found in Audacity.
