If you’re into heritage fashion, or vintage style, chances are you have some vinyl records. If you dig that nostalgic sound, you may also want to take it with you on-the-go. The Crosley Nomad Turntable is portable, but most importantly, allows you to transfer that nostalgic sound to a digital copy. If you are an occasional listener, or a new collector, the Crosley Nomad delivers.
The Crosley Radio Corporation was founded by Powel Crosley, Jr. in the early 1920’s in Cincinnati, Ohio. When most home radios were nearly $100, Crosley designed the Harko model that sold for $7. The company also produced appliances, cars, and televisions. In 2013 it expanded its line of turntables and currently has 20 additional models to choose from.
This vintage-inspired briefcase turntable is vinyl-wrapped and features a wood-style cabinet that resembles woven cloth. The retro chrome snap closure is sharp and stylish. There are built-in dynamic full range stereo speakers on both ends as well as a headphone jack, auxiliary output, and RCA audio out.
The Nomad’s coolest attribute is its USB connectivity. The software suite is compatible with Windows or Mac, allowing you to connect to your computer and create a digital copy of your music. It includes software for ripping and editing audio.
The Nomad features a belt-driven mechanism and plays 7”, 10”, and 12” records in three speeds with a diamond stylus NP5 needle. Weighing only 10 pounds, it is easily portable, even if just moving to a different location in the room. Dimensions are 13”x17”x4”.
