Beautiful. But came with missing needle and 45 converter.

Summary: This is a beautiful equipment. But it came with missing parts. Contacted amazon and the told me They could refund me if I sent the item back. Since I had already broken the box I decided to buy the needle and the 45 converter at an electronics store and got it with no problem. After this it works great.
Summary: The Crosley product I purchased has great features physically and is definitely versatile, but is lacking in good sound reproduction and unwaving playback. I'm not expecting this system to band-aid old worn recordings, but with today's technology I was expecting more bass boost and steady intonation. The unit does look attractive, however.
Summary: I was having issues with not being able to Finalize a CD once it had been recorded. Without that step, you can't listen to the CD on any other machine. I sent Crosley 4-5 emails and NEVER received a response. I was ready to return the machine, but was finally able to get a few CDs to work. I was using 80 min. blank CDs, but found if you get too close to using all 80 minutes, the CD won't finalize. So I now leave several minutes 'blank' to accomodate the machine.
