Crosley Spinnerette

Nice needlework

As music formats become ever less tangible, it’s easy to forget that aural pleasure used to be solely down to relatively cumbersome – yet ever romantic – vinyl. With any number of innovative gizmos jostling to bridge the gap between needle and nano, the Crosley Spinnerette is one gadget doing it in style.

Combining shamelessly retro design with uber-modern functionality, the Spinnerette’s much more than just a mighty-handsome record player. Boasting a USB port that takes the pain out of vinyl to MP3 conversion, the Spinnerette also embraces the 21st century via its built-in speakers and iPod playback capability. All that and it does a good impression of an excellently retro briefcase when you’re on the go. It’s time to dust off those 45s.
