This has been an unlisted goal – I’ve been wanting to buy a turntable for ages (M. and I both have scads of records but haven’t had anything to play them on in close to a decade), and was planning on getting one as a birthday present for him so didn’t want a goals glimpse to spoil the surprise.
I wanted something that looked a bit old school but had digital recording capabilities (so we can rip some of our LP’s) and played tapes and cds as well, and after some scouting about online this one (a Crosley ‘Archiver’ USB Turntable) fit the bill nicely.
I managed to get the last one in the store, and as an extra bonus, when I picked it up they were having a sale, so it was $50 off. M. was wonderfully surprised, loved it, and it fits perfectly on his bedroom dresser. We’ve already broken out some favorite old records and look forward to converting some ancient mix tapes too.
Round and round and round she goes…
