Product Description

Color: Black


Enjoy a whole new level of LP independence with the Crosley CR49 Traveler. Inspired by the original portable turntables of the late 1950s, the belt-drive unit is versatile enough to play all three common speeds--33-1/3, 45, and 78 rpm--so you're not restricted to any one part of your vintage record collection. In addition, the table's black suitcase housing includes a pair of built-in, full-range stereo speakers, in effect turning the Traveler into a LP boombox (though without the battery power). The effortless portability makes this a great turntable for traveling, visiting friends, or simply enjoying albums in the garage, basement, or other secondary rooms. The case is stylish, too, with a vintage appearance that beautifully complements traditional furnishings. The Traveler even comes with an adjustable tone control, adding to its versatility, along with a diamond-stylus needle. So whether your tastes run to classic jazz or modern rock, savor your vinyl in style with the Crosley Traveler.

The Traveler measures 17 by 7 by 11 inches (W x H x D) and is backed by a 90-day warranty.

Product Description

The optimum use of a disc record of constant rotational speed occurs when the innermost recorded diameter is half of the outermost recorded diameter. But why worry yourself with the details. The Crosley Portable Suitcase Style Turntable plays all three speeds, 33 1/3, 45 and 75 RPM records. By the late fifties, stereo records reached a peak in the marketplace as hi-fi sound reproduction attained its largest audience to date. The portable turntable was introduced in the late 1950's and provided music lovers with a sense of independence, allowing them to easily cart their record player from one locale to another. The popularity of this unit was due in no small part to its portability, but also to its suitcase-styled finishing touches that became a Crosley hallmark. So whether you choose Ella Fitzgerald or Elvis, celebrate your vinyl in portable style.

Color Name: Black
So I was in the market for a portable turntable. I wasn't really into the styling of the top load players...the plastic looking ones with chrome accents. They seemed cheap looking, and honestly a pain to transport. The suitcase model was an instant winner, the design is clean, simple and functional and the outer casing is tough as nails. The case looks big in pictures because a 78 is on the platter, in actuality it leaves a footprint a little smaller than 2 computer keyboards facing each other.

This unit is ready to go right out of the box. The only accessories it comes with is the AC adapter and a 45 adapter, basically you don't need anything else. The controls include an on/off/volume knob, tone knob and a 3 way switch for 33/45/78....cant get any easier. The controls are well placed and all feel sturdy.

The sound quality and volume out of this unit is acceptable. Obviously you're not getting a lot of bass response with the two 4" speakers. They get the job done though, and even when the volume is at highest setting you get no distortion. But, if you're highest concern is sound quality then your missing the whole point of this product, and vinyl in general.

My only gripe with this product is the AC adapter. With the dimensions of this unit they should have been able to make the adapter inside the unit and made a detachable power chord. Or a retractable plug would have been even better. On more than one occasion I've ran out of the house with the suitcase under my arm only to forget the adapter....making the adventure go down in flames.

In closing I am extremely pleased with this player. The design is simple, sounds good and can take the beatings that are associated with frequent transport.

As you would guess from its price and its source, this nifty portable player gives mediocre (but pretty satisfactory) performance on LPs, and does a little better on 45s, but it is simply amazing on 78s (manufactured from the late 1890s to the mid-1950s, petering out just at the dawn of rock-n-roll). I have no idea how this can be, but it is flat out true that my ancient 78s sounded better, richer, fuller, and far more enjoyable, on this sub-$100 player (at Rite-Aid, no less), than on my high-end stereo equipment. True, the very weakest link in my real system is the Thorens 180 turntable I use for 78s, but that alone can't account for the remarkably low surface noise and sheer listening pleasure to be had from these shellac geezers as played on the Crosley portable tonight (I just bought it, while my wife was looking for floss and nail polish). There's also something palpably magical about sitting in front of this tan beauty that seems to make the music better -- maybe these old records were intended to be played on these machines, and they only sound right this way. I do remember listening to my very first 45s (with the big hole in the middle) on something very like this player, when I was about 4 years old, staying with my cousins at the Jersey Shore in the 1950s - I was hooked on music from that moment. Probably because the overall fidelity is on the low side, the ear seems to adjust immediately, and "fill in the gaps" in the sound in a much more pleasing way than when listening to laughably more expensive and more sensitive equipment.Read more ›

This turntable and most if not all the Crosley's turntables are overpriced for what it gives you. First off, the sound quality is not very good and the tone arm does not have a weight control to prevent the stylus from severely damaging your ablums if accidently kicked or knocked. Also without weight control on the tone arm, more pressure is applied on the sound groves and your albums won't last very long. You can definitely get a better deal for a turntable equipted with tone arm weight control so the stylus will ease up your fine albums and still give you excellent sound quality.

I do a lot of comparison shopping- too much, in fact. I often become confused! I tried several different types of record players before this- from high end turntables to all-in-one models. If you are looking for a sturdy record player with integrated speakers to keep your record collection alive, this will fit the bill. I found the size, look and quality all to be right for the price. I paid more for a turntable that I hooked up to my sound system and wasn't as happy. I've found that when it comes to these items, the simpler, the better. This is a great record player- it has even inspired me to start buying vinyl again. If you are a very picky audiophile, you probably won't like it- but then you probably have a hard time finding anything to satisfy you!

Don't get me wrong. This is not a high end techno turntable by any means. However, it IS a nice little unit for playing back your old vinyl.

Construction is rugged, sparse, and utilitarian. Just like the original! Sound quality isn't exactly audophile standard, but is good enough for one room.

If you are looking for digital quality, forget it. This ain't for you. However, if you are looking for wonderful, beautiful ANALOG, with all it's clicks, pops, static, and so on, this player is fantastic!
