Summary: My husband bought this product as a Christmas gift for me. I have been quite pleased with the product itself, although the speakers leave a quite a bit to be desired. We are planning to hook up a sound system to see if that helps the sound quality. What we had problems with, however, was that we did not get exactly what we ordered or paid for. This particular product was listed with all of the specifications, but also said it included 3 replacement needles.
Summary: Looks nice but looks can deceive. I thought it was going to answer some of my needs to digitize LP's, and cassettes. It didn't work after I opened box, unpacked contents, turned it on, put on a record to burn and blank CD and got immediate error message. I called Crosley Help and they said it was indeed defective. Thankfully the Reseller Wayfair and Amazon came to the rescue and refunded all the $$$ immediately.
Summary: I wish I had read other comments about this product before I bought it. We ordered this stereo directly from the Crosley company, so we have to pay a fortune to return it, but we've really been so disappointed in it. The stereo is beautiful, which is another reason we're so disappointed. The turntable works just fine, and we've loved hearing our records again.
