Retro Record Player 1960s
1960s Record Player
- In the 1960s, the record player was a staple in American households. It has since gone extinct, or so we thought until finding this great turntable from Crosley. It can stack 6 records of any size (7"", 10"", and 12"") and advance them using a fully automatic arm. Plays at 33 1/3, 45, and 78 rpm, with dial-adjusted bass/treble and volume.
