retro radio

October 3, 2012
In 1920, dismayed by the $130 price tag of a radio receiver, Powel Crosley decided to make his own.

After building one for $35, Crosley was quick to spot the mass market potential.

The Kentucky-based Crosley line lives on in its  detailed replicas of vintage radios and turntables, which feature the newest technologies.

Take the Collegiate turntable (shown above). This retro-inspired, three-speed turntable features a front stereo speaker, which is designed to look like the grill of an automobile.

It is easily transportable with a built-in leather handle. Connect the device to your computer through the USB port and use the included software to preserve your records

For a short time, you can get the turntable for $122 (regularly $149.95) at
The sale also includes other pieces in the Crosley collection, including telephones and juke boxes.
