I purchased this product as one of my Christmas presents to my daughter. We reviewed several products online together and she really wanted the Crosley Cruiser, as it looked so good, stylish and seemed exactly what she wanted.

We read many reviews on here before purchasing and to be honest we were very hesitant before going ahead. The reviews seemed very mixed, with several suggesting it just didn't work or the sound was poor, but we decided to take a gamble. When she opened the gift, it of course looked great and she quickly put an old vinyl album on to play. We were very happy and relieved to hear it playing perfectly and the sound quality was excellent, far exceeding our expectations. You have the ability to add additional speakers, but it really doesn't need them.

I thought it only right, to come back and write a quick review here, as buying such products online often feels like a bit of a gamble and I'm happy to say that this one paid off and I would certainly recommend this product. It's great and my daughter loves it. For the money paid I feel it is excellent.

There's a lot of criticism surrounding this turntable. I agree that delivery of broken or missing parts is unacceptable. I often purchase through Amazon but because of the many bad reviews here - in this case, to avoid a return hassle, I simply bought at my local record store - got them to play a record on the player before I bought it.
Many write that the audio quality is not great. I say that it has similar audio quality to a portable radio with similar sized speakers.
I agree it is a shame that it's not possible to purchase something with this design with a high quality amplifier and speakers. I'd be happy to pay more for better quality.
Non the less, the speakers don't distort - the sound is just a little thin and the RPM is not always constant.
The headphone jack provides a similar sound to the speakers. A bit tinny and 'live" - a bit like an over-done "concert hall" equaliser preset. I would avoid the headphone option.
I decided to hook up the RCA connection output to my home stereo amplifier and it sounds very good. In fact it sounds as good as any turntable I've ever owned. Contrary to the built in speakers, it has a full sound from low bass all the way through to the top end.
I admit I wasn't expecting such a nice result after listening for a while through the built in speakers - but once hooked up correctly - Wow! Not bad at all. Just remember not to plug this unit into your "phono" amplifier input. Simply use the "AUX" or "Line IN" option for best results. (The Crosley does not have a proper PHONO output.)

One point off because the lid has no support lanyard.The lid needs to recline back fully for an LP to play unhindered putting stress on the hinges.

I wanted a small record player for my teenage daughter to play all my vintage records on,this fitted the bill perfectly.It's small enough to store away neatly,but that does not deflect from the sound quality .Additional speakers can be attached,but she is more than happy with the sound/volume it produces.

We bought it for our sixteen year old daughter for Christmas, several artists that she liked had released albums on vinyl. Having a collection of vinyl dating back to the 70,s some of which she had shown an interest I thought it would be good for her to play them in her own space.

The syling of this deck is amazing
The sound quality is poor but what do you expect from something that is small light and portable
It has a line out so you can improve the sound quality by playing it through an external amp when portability is not an issue

The problem is the quality of the record deck itself I didn't trust that the flimsy plastic tone arm would take good care of my precious vinyl and I was soon proved right records that were absolutely fine started to jump/skate. My collection is going nowhere near this player.

I think if all you want is to dig out some old LPs (60s and 70s stuff) and get some sound out of them, then this will do the trick (and look nice as well).

However if you want to do anything more, then don't waste your time. Seriously. On any modern records it skips and jumps like no man's business (my Dad's informed me it's because the needle's not weighted very carefully and it gets confused by the bass). Yes you can compensate for this with a penny/some bluetac but you have to re-adjust it for every record and often end up scratching them in the process. I caused irreversible damage to a brand new alt-j album while experimenting. It's also liable to skip on old records, but not quite as much.

The internal speakers are (unsurprisingly) diabolical - but it's got an aux out so that's no biggy. Put through an amp it sounds ok.

So - to reiterate - if your only goal is to play your old collection, and you're not fussed about skips and quality then go ahead. But I sent mine back almost straight away and splashed out a bit more on a Project Elemental. Substantially better quality, still looks nice and actually plays records without jumping!

I've never properly reviewed anything before, but I didn't want people making the same mistake I did. Hope it helps!
