Consumer Electronics Show: Turntable uses old technology for modern purpose

January 7, 2011 |  9:07 am

The Crosley Revolution, a portable turntable capable of ripping records into MP3 files, was unveiled this week at the Consumer Electronics Show. The device will run on six AA batteries and has an FM transmitter built in, so you can take it on the go and listen to records over most stereo systems.

Crosley modernized the look of the player, and for about $150 it could be a cost-effective solution for converting large vinyl collections into digital files. I guess they realize that as much as audiophiles prefer analog to digital, it just isn't feasible to go for a jog with a gramophone strapped to your upper arm.
