Crosley Cruiser Deluxe Turntable w/ Bluetooth – Tweed
Manual Belt-Drive Turntable With Switchable Pre-amp and AT-3600 Cartridge
From aesthetics and function to build quality and sound, the C8 is a fantastic player that sounds as good as it looks.
The Crosley C8 turntable is a very nice looking machine that is nicely put together and with a sweet sound to boot. Advanced features include adjustable tracking weight and anti-skate, as well as a solid Audio-Technica AT-3600 cartridge on a removable shell head.
Nice feature: You can plug the Crosley C8 straight into a pair of powered speakers, thanks to the built-in pre-amp, or pump it through a traditional stereo receiver (switch the pre-amp off if you’re plugging into an old-school integrated amplifier).
Be sure to check out our video on how to hook your new turntable to a stereo or AV receiver — even one that that doesn’t have built-in phono inputs.

Great Looks, Great Sound in One Sweet Player
Crosley started with a hefty slab of audio grade MDF and then wrapped it in a rich walnut veneer for a solid base — or plinth — that isolates the vibrations that can affect sound quality. The low-vibration synchronous motor is further isolated and uses an external belt to spin the full-size aluminum platter at both 33 1/3 and 45 RPM.
In keeping with the sleek, understated look, there's only one visible control — the on/off/speed selection knob. The aluminum tonearm matches the platter and is outfitted with a counterweight, anti-skate control and removable headshell, which allows you to swap out audio cartridges and further customize your setup.
Speaking of cartridges, the C8 comes with a nice Audio-Technica moving magnet cartridge. There’s a removable dust cover to keep the enemy at bay, a built-in switchable preamp and RCA outputs to easily hook the C8 up to your speakers or sound system. To keep the whole walnut motif going, consider pairing your C8 with a sharp-looking pair of Crosley S200 Powered Speakers.
Note that this is a fully manual turntable — the turntable kicks on when you cue up the tonearm and move it into position, and must be returned to the off position when the record ends.
The verdict: Show-stopper good looks matched by impressive audio features — from the hefty base and platter to the Audio-Technica AT-3600 cartridge. And at this price, a steal.
