Crosley 1975T Entertainment System
For record enthusiasts looking for a solid turntable that can do it all, look no further than the fully featured Crosley 1975T Entertainment System.

The Crosley 1975T Entertainment System also comes with 2 external speakers so you can set your audio up in a manner that suits your space. This is a real all-rounder and perfect for the serious audiophile.
Crosley C3 Turntable
In contrast to the vintage-inspired 1975T, the Crosley C3 Turntable certainly makes a bit of a statement, boasting a retro-futurist design that looks like a long-lost prototype for the beloved frisbee. However, this whacky design does have its perks, offering an audio grade MDF plinth with an external belt and a vibration free foundation to prolong the life of your precious records and enhance listening quality. Featuring many high quality specs, the Crosley C3 is sure to become the centre of attention in your living room and comes in either black, white or red colourways.
