Crosley Revolution portable record player is the modern-day Sound Burger

Soundburger

Big thanks to Outa Spaceman for pointing out the return of that essential tool for crate diggers everywhere – the Sound Burger. Except the new version isn't called that, instead it goes by the name of the Crosley Revolution portable turntable.

Originally dating to the mid-80s, when it was pitched as portable audio (for people with lots of records and not many cassettes I presume), it took on a new life years later as a small portable vinyl player that's perfect for use in record stores, record fairs and of course, charity shops.

The new version runs on rechargeable batteries, has USB and headphone connectivity and a price that's expected to be well under the £100 mark. Currently being shown off around the trade shows like CES, it will hit the shelves in the summer.
