Warbly, garbly

Riki Rushing, Amazon
18 January 2014
  • Summary: Whatever the mechanisms that drive this turntable... they are off -- and we get a lot of musical "slurring." Sort of like it's going at the right speed and then slows down. I hope vintage didn't mean earliest days of Edison's recording. My fairly good condition records are all playing like someone is hand churning the belt drive. I probably got a lemon, maybe the others aren't like that.

Cd function does not work!! Dad not happy...

JDonz, Amazon
4 January 2014
  • Summary: I ordered this for a Christmas present for my father. I was going to buy one locally but with this being cheaper I figured I'd give it a try. After waiting a while for shipping (which I never do, I almost always only buy Amazon Prime eligible) we give it to him for x-mas and he was so excited! The record player works but the cd player does not! How disappointing!!! After paying over 100 for this item only to find out it doesn't work. I am highly upset!!

Piece of Crap!!!

gayle216, Amazon

  • Summary: At first, this item worked just fine. We didn't use it very much, and within 3 months of the purchase it failed to work. The power button would only come on sporadically. By this time it was too late to get a refund. Don't wast your money on this!!!

Junk products

mbratch, Amazon
23 November 2013
  • Summary: I bought a Crosley for my daughter from Amazon and the phono cartridge was mounted crooked on the tonearm. It had a "list" to it which caused the plastic housing of the cartridge to rub against the record while it was playing which, of course, caused problems (skipping, etc). So Amazon accepted the return for credit and I bought another one locally. The new one had the cartridge mounted straight enough, but it had a serious warble to the sound.

No Needle + Tinny Sound = Immediate Return

Kate, Amazon
17 September 2013
  • Summary: As the title says, my machine came without a needle. I bought it primarily to use the record player, so this posed a bit of a problem. I was going to simply replace the unit with another one, but when I plugged in my phone to play music, I realized that the speakers aren't all that good: they were very treble heavy without much bass and therefore sound tinny. I ended up buying the Audio Technica turntable, and it works beautifully right out of the box.

Playback of LPs is not reliable

Chip Meyer "thechip", Amazon
26 August 2013
  • Summary: I did not review this after the first unit failed. Things happen. Amazon is great, the replacement arrived. But the replacement unit only worked for 2 months before having the same issue: Lack of speed control on vinyl records. My daughter is very disappointed.

A real, honest review.

Travis Benson, Amazon
17 September 2012
  • Summary: I absolutely love this product. I was you: Reading through the reviews, trying to decipher if this is a good or a terrible product. Let me be the first to say that you are not alone! Now the truth: I bought it for the purposes of playing my ever-growing collection of Vinyl. Little did I know just how amazing this product could be!

An excellent buy given reasonable expectations.

Ian R. Copeland, Amazon
19 August 2012
  • Summary: I actually purchased this record player at a local pawn shop ($65!) where it certainly looked new or at the very least extremely lightly used. I had been looking for a simple record player with internal speakers to sit atop a beautiful antique record stand that was waiting for us in our new rented apartment, and--despite the reservations I had about this one based on the negative Amazon reviews--I couldn't pass up the deal.

Soooo awesome

JohnRoose, Amazon
21 June 2012
  • Summary: My sister had gotten this as birthday present several years back and it was a total waste on her. She doesn't listen to records and I'm an avid collector. So thusly I was jealous. Well after having it for years I can attest to the fact that it lasts a long time. I would occasionally steal the unit and bring it up to my room. Just recently my boyfriend bought me my very own and I couldn't be happier.
