Crosley Cruiser Deluxe Vintage 3-Speed Bluetooth Suitcase Turntable, Black
About this deal
The Cruiser’s tracking weight is a serious issue, and the turntable’s speakers are a disappointment. While some people prefer a sleek and modern look, others might prefer a conventional and classic look. The two most popular alternatives to the Crosley Cruiser are the Electrohome Archerand the 1byone Suitcase Style Turntable.
Through headphones, the sound is hazy and noisy – we actually prefer listening through the speakers. The speakers are good considering the size of the unit, but they lag behind competing record players and they come nowhere near a set of high-quality speakers.The turntable features two built-in speakers, not the richest and clearest but definitely do a good job with its size.
The Cruiser is a great player if you’re looking for portability and decent sound from the built-in speakers. But the built-in speakers are hardly capable of delivering a detailed and dynamic sound, let alone do any better than the worst flatscreen TV speakers.It’s a direct-drive turntable, which means it’s powered by magnets with the motor lying right underneath the platter (where the record sits), causing it to reach the intended speed quickly, experts previously told us. In the meanwhile I am having fun reliving memories of making do with old and wornout record players and a boatload of worn out second hand records.
