Sound Burger returns as the Crosley Revolution CR6002 portable record player

We featured this back in January, but now you can actually buy the Crosley Revolution CR6002 portable record player. At least, you can in the US. Don't worry, it'll be in the UK soon enough.

It's not a million miles away from the vinyl crate digger's tool of choice, the Sound Burger, a portable record player from the mid-80s. This new version updates things a little, offering 33/45 speed playback, dynamic full range stereo speakers, battery power, an FM transmitter for firing music over to your audio system wirelessly and a USB socket, so you can easily transfer vinyl to digital formats.

You can buy it directly from Crosley for $149.95 in three colour options, as well as Hammacher Schlemmer. We would expect Urban Outfitters to be the place in the UK to get one in the near future.

  • Wow! Being a funk & soul vinyl 45s dj and ‘digger’ I have the original Sound Burger in silver, this new reincarnation really looks great. Of all the portable record players this is the neatest design and looks the funkiest, and if it’s anything like the original, the sound is hi-fi quality too. Quite simply you need one.
