PORTABLE USB TURNTABLE - W/ FM Transmitter
DO NOT ORDER AS THERE ARE NO MORE.
When you take the record player "out of the box", you'll see why the
Crosley's Revolution™ turntable truly fits it's name. Where other turntables
take up space, this one dances around a desk without ado. Where other record
players must be kept in their designated place, the Crosley Revolution™
practically begs to join you on every journey. Where other turntables tangle
you in a web of wires, the Crosley Revolution™ effortlessly pairs with any
FM radio for cordless, clear sound. It is a turntable of firsts -the first
battery-powered Crosley turntable, the first with a platter smaller than a
teacup saucer, and the first with a wireless transmitter for cord-free
enjoyment. Users can tote this two-speed turntable with them to vinyl swaps
or to a friend's house. Featuring a USB hookup for easy analog-to-digital
transfer, the Crosley Revolution™ will allow users to free their favorites
from the grooves for digital enjoyment across a variety of devices. This
small but mighty turntable also features a headphone jack, passive audio
out, and a dynamic*, full range speaker. **PATENT PENDING**
Ok, this turntable is not for everyone, but it will definitely fit some
'unique bills'. It's weird and wacky, 'Space-Age' looks will astound you.
It's truly 'Portable' and as it's capable of battery power, can stand alone
It is designed to be a novel way to get your vinyl sound onto your stereo
system via it's 'line-out' jack or FM transmitter, your portable radio in
the kitchen via the FM transmitter, or other similar use. One great use that
a few customers have made us aware of is for showing their vintage 1950's,
60's and 70's American Iron, cars at car shows. You just display it on the
hood of your '57 Chevy, '66 Malibu, '71 442 Cutlass or other great car, tune
the FM radio (unless you only have an AM, in which case you're 'hosed') put
on an album or 45 and you're cars' stereo is 'rock'in the show'.
The Crosley 'Revolution' turntable is USB enabled for connection to PC and
Mac and includes a software suite for ripping and editing audio content.
Transferring / recording your LP's and Cassette Tapes to CD is as easy as
using the included 'Audacity' software.
Ok, I have to vent here...While this Crosley does have a built in speaker,
let's put this in perspective. I read reviews out there about how the sound
is 'lacking from it's internal speaker' or 'it sounds thin' or 'not
audiophile quality'. DUH!!! Are people now that out of touch that they are
unaware of what a small, 3-4" single speaker, in a small plastic housing
would sound like. Yes, I think they must be. The internal speaker is
primarily for monitoring / checking what is on a record, and not for
'audiophile' listening. Anyone who considers themselves some degree of a
defined 'Audiophile' would not be considering a portable unit such as this
as anything resembling 'audiophile-use' in the first place. Think about it!
It is what it is, a uniquely designed, portable turntable and a great
conversation piece while playing (preferably through your stereo system
either via FM or Line-Out/In).
It's reminiscent of the 1980's, Sony SP-F5, that looked very similar
(except it was not capable of USB output and did not have a built in
speaker, the latter of which was probably a good thing). Another
'complaint' I read about was it's limited FM broadcast capabilities of only
10-20 feet. That's an FCC regulation issue and not Crosley. Some individuals
are certainly quick to complain aren't they. Ok, I'll get off my soapbox.
USB Enabled - for Connection to Windows Equipped PC and MAC
'Audacity' Software Suite for Ripping and Editing Audio Content (included)
Driven Turntable Plays 2 Speeds - 33 1/3 & 45 RPM Records
Replaceable Record Player Needle / Stylus
FM Stereo / Radio
TRANSMITTER for transmitting it's stereo signal to a nearby FM radio /
'Line-Output' via 3.5mm, TRS jack (standard 'portable' style headphone jack)
(allows connection to
other sound systems, your computer sound card analog input, or any 'line
level' audio input such as a larger stereo system, and amp / speakers, a PA
system, Paging System, your TV with 'Line Inputs', your 'in-wall /
in-ceiling' speaker system, etc.)
1.75", Dynamic, Full Range Speaker
(again, this speaker is
primarily for 'monitoring' your recordings / file transfers from the
turntable or the most 'pedestrian' of listening)
a side note: 'Dynamic' refers to the technical design of the speakers
'motor' or magnet structure. I think many folks erroneously think that the
term 'dynamic' infers superior sound quality, when it is simply a
'technical' term describing a 'fixed / Permanent magnet' with a moving coil
of wire around it)
AC or DC
(For AC power simply utilize
the INCLUDED AC power adaptor. For portable / DC use install 6x AA batteries
and will ship as 'A' stock!*
This a unique unit, who's
'looks' are to be appreciated as it's primary 'draw'. I'm assuming if you
weren't intrigued by it's looks, you would be considering the purchase of a
normal turntable.?. Right? If you are considering this turntable for what it
IS, then you'll likely LOVE IT!
Now comes with a 1 YEAR limited
warranty up from Crosley's previous, 90 Day limited warranty.
