The Crosley C62 was designed to be a ready-to-go-sounds-damn-good-straight-out-of-the-box turntable system that doesn’t break the bank. This fully manual two-speed (33 1/3 & 45 RPM) turntable sports an MDF plinth wrapped in a faux walnut veneer that would fool the best of lumberjacks. The matching MDF speakers look just as good as the turntable and each rock a mid-range speaker and tweeter. The matte black aluminum tone arm has an adjustable counterweight and comes pre-mounted with a moving magnet cartridge. Of course, the cartridge is mounted with the standard 1/2” mount, so you can always upgrade your cartridge/stylus combo as your vinyl collection grows. The record sits on a heavy steel platter that helps keep the C62 firmly planted on its three vibration control feet. Take that, rough vibrations! The super minimal, two-knob design makes it easy to switch speeds, crank up the volume and switch to the built-in Bluetooth receiver if you want to stream music from your favorite digital playlist. Whether you live in a sweet NYC loft or a teenage bedroom filled with angst, the C62 can hold its own.
