In an age of digital music stores and personal media players, vinyl records have made an unlikely comeback among music enthusiasts.
But turntable and speakers typically are too cumbersome to carry around, so Crosley is trying to make things a little easier with the Revolution ($150). This portable turntable can hook into a sound system or feed into a radio through an FM transmitter. The player is about the size of a men’s size 9 shoe and weighs just 1.5 pounds. The Revolution plays both 33-1/3 and 45-rpm records and lets you rip records to digital files.
