Summary: I got the Crosley by UPS and quickly unpacked it to test it out... Easy set up, and super easy to use. The sound quality isn't the best and there is a lot of hiss and popping in the records, but that comes with the cheap needles and cheap players. If you have some decent MP3 mastering or recording programs, you can clean the sound up by importing the MP3 in and doing a little audio mastering. Its cheap, it works and I haven't had any issues.
Summary: Bought this as a Christmas gift and we love it! Plays all of our records great. Have it hooked up to our Bose speakers and delivers quality sound. Has a little trouble playing older, heavier records but otherwise it's fine.
Summary: The sound is not very good. I thought from reading the info about this unit that external speakers could be plugged in to give better sound. You can only do that if you have an amplifier for the speakers as well. If I had know that I would have bought a better turntable and the amp aand speakers separately. This unit is OK if you arn't expecting high quality sound.
Crosley CR6007A-MA recommend it only for the tone deaf.

Summary: Being that i'm an incurable audiophile..this review may be a bit prejudiced. I have listened to this compact little piece of junk in the store and would only recommend it for taking on vacation... Especially since i take in trips to exotic record stores on my vacations. Pushing that topic aside for now, let me get to the meat of this review. It has some handy features such as an analog radio tuner, for those who actually can listen to radio.
Summary: I'll cover the good and bad since there is no "ugly" to this pretty little box. Good: Compact size Easy set up Looks great on/off knob feels solid "wood" finish is convincing A+ for dust cover with gaps for 12" records Radio function works L/R line uots for external speakers (trust me, you'll need them) line in for CD MP3/SD slots for digital music Bright blue screen light weight Bad: Sounds atrocious! Want some dinner music or after diner music?
Summary: The appearance of this unit reminds me of the turntables/record changers of the 70s, which in my opinion is a plus. I have a VERY large LP collection that I want to add to my iPod, and this looked to be perfect for that purpose. Haven't used it to transfer vinyl to usb yet, but I have listened to my vinyl and the radio, which, by the way, receives several stations I cannot get on my other radios.
