new in | crosley record player10.01.2014
let me introduce you to my new baby.. the crosley.
I can't tell you how much I love my record player, I'm still pinching myself that I have it (it was a gift from my wonderful brother!)
...it's not only produced a lot of excitement in our house but also reawakened my love of music!
I'm a restless soul so I don't really sit down and listen to music much! it's usually just snatched time with iPhone play lists whilst I'm out and about.. the novelty of having a record player makes you appreciate those albums you keep meaning to catch up with all over again. I now find myself playing records all. the. time.

the crosley itself is just beautiful, I love the design and the colour (there are some A-MAZING ones here!) one thing I would note is that on first play it was a little jumpy and I was terrified it was scratching my lana del rey vinyl (oh the horror) but luckily it didn't! it just seemed to need a little time to warm up.. after 3 or 4 songs any occasional skipping had stopped.
I'm not sure where it will live permanently yet.. it's currently in our bedroom, yesterday it was in the kitchen and tomorrow it will probably be back in the living room! I can't wait to have people over for drinks and nibbles so I can have it playing away in the background. the speakers are actually quite impressive for such a small player!
if any of you know any good sites for vinyl please let me know.. I'm on a mission to build up a little library!
do you like it too.. would you be tempted to invest in one?
