Crosley Cruiser Portable Turntable Review (CR8005A-TU)

Crosley Cruiser Portable Turntable Review (CR8005A-TU)
The Crosley Cruiser Portable Turntable was my first record player, I actually bought it in that same color. I am not going to lie to you, in terms of sound quality, it isn’t the best turntable you can get, but it is one of the best-looking record players that you can find under $100 dollars. If you are looking for sound quality, go to the homepage and check out which turntables I recommend.
Doing a Crosley turntable review it is something that is always going to be fun to do. Maybe this Crosley record players don’t have the best sound quality but they, almost always, have a good looking vintage style that makes me remember why I bought my first record player. And in particular, doing a Crosley Cruiser review is something that I always wanted to do! So let’s get into it!
Bottom line: Go for this turntable is you have a tight budget and you prefer design over sound quality.

Design (4.5/5)

This Crosley Cruiser Portable Turntable it is a vintage, cool, and great looking record player. One key indicator of its great looking design is that in one of the few turntables that are sold at UrbanOutfitter.

Sound Quality (3.5/5)

It is not the best, but is not the worst. You are still going to notice a huge bump in sound quality from CD players! Most people demonize Crosley Turntables but, you know what? They aren’t that bad, if you buy a $100 record player  you can’t expect that it is going to have the same sound quality than others that are much more expensive.

Price (5/5)

At the time of this review this record player was priced at $80 dollars in Amazon. We don’t have to many choices on the below $100 budget, and I think this one with the most appealing designs.

Portability (5/5)

This is an small record player that can be easily carried around thank to that, as you can see in the picture,  it is designed to be carried as a briefcase. That’s why I give the Crosley Cruiser Portable Record Player a 5/5 in portability.
