Crosley Bermuda Dansette Portable Vinyl Turntable : Sound quality is fine for reliving my 80s youth

Crosley bermuda dansette turntable. Firstly i want to say that this is my first turntable, my main reason for purchasing was for my farther so he could try some of his old records again. After a bit of research i knew that crosley was the brand to go for when wanting a high quality but affordable turntable. Crosley has been producing audio products since the early 1900s, most notably producing radios. They are now known for producing some of the best turntables and record players available. The main reason i chose the bermuda dansette model is due to the awesome retro styling and the fact that it has built in speakers, meaning that it can be used as a standalone unit. The product is styled very closely to the original 1960s dansette turntables and looks great. All of the materials used feel of a high quality and small details like the metal ‘dansette’ badge on the front or the chrome clips on the side really show that they have put some effort into the styling of this product. The turntable was very easy to set up, remove the protective plastic bit from the needle and plug the power cord into the back then just add a vinyl record and you’re ready. There is a switch on the top enabling you to choose between the 33rpm or 45rpm speed settings and there is also an auto stop switch, initially i thought that this may automatically bring the arm back when the record is finished but is does not do this it simply stops the record from spinning and allows you to manually place the arm back.

Beautiful retro vinyl player. A present for my husbands 40th and he loved it. A beautiful piece and very retro, exactly what i wanted.

Looks great and has a good sound.

Just what we wanted to replay our collection of lps.

Crosley Bermuda Dansette Portable Vinyl Turntable with Built In Stereo Speakers – Red : I bought this as a gift for my dad as he has a vast record collection but nothing to play them on. He is over the moon with his new toy. Pride of place in the summer house in the garden, he now spends the days in the sun listening to vinyls from years ago. What a dreamthe sound is so crystal clear which is brilliant. I’ve never owned or even used a record player before and never really understood how the needle plays the record instead of scratching it but it sounds perfect. The volume can go much louder than i expected too which is a nice surprise. The box says it plays 7, 10 and 12 inch records which is great as you’re not tied down to just the one size. I love that the bermuda has legs to stand on instead of having to use a whole surface, although you don’t need to use the legs and can have it on a table/desk if you wish. The legs really makes the crosley a statement, and gives it more of a retro look in my opinion.

Looks great and has a good sound.

Enjoying vinyl once again :). Bought as a (portion of a ) birthday present for my wife. Good looking piece of furniture. . Don’t be rough with the a/c adaptor. If you press the little button the 2 pin bit comes out easily, allowing the 3 pin to be slotted in. Look through the instruction book, and you will see that there is an auto stop switch under the needle arm. If playback stops too soon, simply turn to ‘off’ and the records play just fine.

My girlfriend just bought this for my birthday. We are both over 50 yo and have loads of old lps. The sound is just like my old fidelity player when i was a kidi’ve got access to all of my music collection from online subscriptions with no crackle or hum from the turntable so i’m not looking for hi fi from the record playerbrilliant fun if you’ve still got your record collection(looks great too).

Sound quality is fine for reliving my 80s youth. This makes me smile whenever i see it – it’s so retro. Sound quality is fine for reliving my 80s youth, probably not good enough if you’re a really serious music fan but you wouldn’t be buying this anyway. The only thing that’s not great is that it only plays to a certain point on each record, so if your music carries on towards the middle of the record further than that point it just stops. Only been a problem on one or two singles. Otherwise i absolutely love it. Packaging, delivery and build quality great.

Just right for the birthday gift – does what it says on the tin. Would be better with tone control though.
