The Crosley Record Player CR249
Keepsake USB Turntable

Do you know a friend or family member who has boxes of old vinal record albums that they collected back in the 50s, 60s, or 70s -- back before CDs came along? But these records just sit in the corner of the closet or garage never being played. Probably in that collection of music are some real music gems from way back when --- that for some reason never came out on CD later on.


The Crosley Keepsake USB Turntable may be the perfect gift solution. They can now take their old vinyl and convert them to CD in minutes with just a few simple steps. The Keepsake allows those old albums to be recorded in a digital audio format for high quality sound on a smaller, more modern compact disc. It easily interfaces with the USB port on any computer (PC or Mac) by utilizing the supplied software suite. However, if they still want to enjoy their albums (and their obscure 45 rpm singles) old style, then Crosley's Keepsake offers a 3-speed turntable for their listening enjoyment. They can preserve their entire music collection with the Keepsake.


Available in black or tan colors.
