This Crosley Portable LP to MP3 Turntable is an impressively svelte digitizer which will take the lustre and succulent sounds of yesteryear and convert them into mechanised digital convenience in a format of your choice (as long as it’s WAV or MP3). It also sports a neat FM transmitter feature which will let you beam your album to the nearest stereo radio without wires. Battery powered and plastic black. $149.95.
With a platter smaller than a teacup saucer, the belt-driven turntable plays 33 and 45-rpm records using a diamond stylus that produces sound through its integrated 2-watt stereo speaker. It plugs into a computer running Windows 7, Vista, XP, or a Mac using the included USB cable–recordings are converted and transferred directly to a computer as a WAV file. It also has a built-in FM transmitter that plays records over unused frequencies on any stereo tuner’s speakers.
