4.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what I was expecting., July 18, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Crosley CR6019A-BK Executive Portable USB-Enabled 3-Speed Turntable (Black & White) (Electronics)
I haven't used all of the features on this item yet, but as far as straight forward basic playing of records, it's exactly what I was expecting. The built in speakers are quite small, and don't produce a lot of sound. Upon plugging in a pair of headphones, the volume was quite nice. But I'm not one to sit still and just listen to my records. So, for now, I grabbed a small boom box that I had collecting dust and used the 3.5mm to 3.5mm wire (that was included) to jack the audio out to the audio in on the boombox to amplify the sound a bit. And that's worked fine for now (albeit, not perfect). But again, I knew this would probably be the case when I ordered it.

I've yet to install the audio program that came with it, but looking at the specs, it appears to work on both mac and pc's. From seeing images of the audio program, it looks like the free audacity program that you can download online. I'm not sure if there's any additions to it. But I like and enjoy using audacity.

I also like that it included the usb cable - since it's a "Type A" to "Type B" USB connection that's not overly common anymore.

As you can see in the photos - the lid of the player DOES need to be open while playing, and actually tilts back quite far, so that the record can clear the back side of the top (if you're looking at the record player from the right side of it, think 2 o'clock for the angle).

The player does have an autostop when the record is done playing. But the arm does NOT move automatically back to the rest. But I believe that was also included in the description.

Overall I love it (about a week now of owning it). If anything changes, I will update my review. And the only thing that kept it from getting a 5 star was the low volume levels (but like i said, it was not completely unexpected).

Hope you all enjoy it!
