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.
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.
Upon opening the box, check all the parts are there and then put it together carefully. It doesn't take long, just follow the instructions - there isn't that much to do. Then plug it in, set the speed on the switch and you are away! I found 12" records played at 45 skipped an awful lot, so I suspect 78s would be worse. However, 7" at 45rpm or 12" at 33rpm were both fine.
Now, audiophiles, look away now - because the sound is pretty thin and tinny. But then, you get what you pay for with HiFi and this record player does not cost a lot of money. I think it rather sounds like the unpowered Walkman speakers I had back in the late 80s, early 90s. And whilst I was saving up for a stereo, that's all I had, and they were fine for my needs. You can plug headphones in, but don't expect sound quality to improve. You can plug external speakers in, but then I doubt many people would do that as it would spoil the portability and looks of this deck.
A WORD OF WARNING: The needle pressure was recorded by What HiFi magazine as being 7g. That is A LOT! My Rega RP3 deck applies a 1.75g weight on the needle. What does that mean? It means you are likely to wear through your records faster. And with the poor quality needle on this player, that will only add to the wear of your vinyl. And if you find the records skipping, and decide to put a 1p coin on the needle to try and stop the skipping it is even worse for your vinyl!
But here's the thing: I bought this for my wife. She doesn't care about any of that.Read more ›
