Pretty Junky

MochaZel, Amazon

  • Summary: Looks pretty, but I don't expect it to last long. The radio control seems flimsy. The record player stopped spinning. We discovered that the arm acts as a two part switch which turns on if you move it (carefully) away from the record to the outside, and off if you move it past the center of the record. In my case, it had gotten turned off, but the flimsy metal piece which controls the switch inside had moved where it wouldn't turn back on.

Good inexpensive player, not built to last

  • Summary: Good choice for occasional use, but not for young kids. I won't be surprised if it doesn't hold up, but I will be careful and hope for the best.
  • Pros: Good looking, inexpensive, decent sound quality for price
  • Cons: Everything feels like its going to break

Do NOT buy this!!

Lux, Amazon
23 February 2007
  • Summary: I just wanted a very simple unit to play records on. This is adorable looking, but made of that absolute worst material and is so ill-put together. Despite the fact that I was able to fix a piece that was broken during shipment, it stopped working after ONE record play! So sad... it's so attractive! Invest in something without being wowed by its appearance.

A Real Disappointment!

Glenda K. Petz, Amazon
8 August 2006
  • Summary: I had been shopping around for a record player for a long time and finally settled on the Crosley CR711 retro, red in color. I went with Crosley because I know it was a name I could trust. I was so excited when I received my record player...that is, until I put the first record on. The music sounded like the record was warped, although I knew it wasn't. I kept trying different records, still the same quality.

It is a drag!

John E. Heiss "Jack of all trades", Amazon
31 July 2006
  • Summary: Although I received the retro unit expected, it did not work as it was unacceptable in performance. The first LP played sounded as if something was dragging the turn table. The next 3 records also dragged. Very dissapointed in the variable speed of the record and the sound produced. Hi-Fi was not not expected but uniform sound reproduction was expected. I used an electronic timer and taped marks on the turn table and the base to determine the RPM of the turn table.

Plastic Junk

Michael Anderson, Amazon
28 January 2004
  • Summary: The Turntable on this unit is very cheap and is made of very lightweight plastic. This causes the turntable to be weighed down when you place a record on it, which in turn causes the record to rub against the edges of the unit... resulting in a warped sound output. If you want to spend 150.00 on a old fashion looking radio, go right ahead. But if you want to spin LP records without them sounding warped, don't waste your time and money.
