Record Players

I used to have one in my bedroom growing up, and for the past few years I've had it in my mind that I wanted a record player for the house. And now I've found exactly what I want. And it's my birthday next month.

Urban Outfitters has a Crosley Portable USB Turntable for sale. From everything I've read, it's pretty fantastic. Good sound (built in!), portable, easy software for mac and pc (if you want to download the music), and I adore the two-tone case. At $160 it's pretty pricey, but for something frivolous as a birthday gift, I think it's a fair price.

The part that makes me really excited though is having an excuse to browse for records. I live in Oregon Hill with Vinyl Conflict up the street. I work in the Fan and have Deep Grove Records over on Robinson. And there's Plan 9 in Carytown, RecordFinders in that weird area in between Scott's Addition/Jackson Ward, and the newly opened Steady Sounds on Broad. Never mind the large amount of records for sale at thrift stores. It's gonna be fun!

  1. Be that as it may, the significant distinction still stays in the working of the instruments. In this way an individual needs to seek a great deal before settling upon specific music hardware.best record player
