Founded in Ohio in the 1920s, Crosley Broadcasting was a pioneer in early radio, launching and running several stations before moving into the mass market manufacturing of radio and vinyl record players. At a time when radios were bulky, wooden luxury items, the players Crosley produced and sold were among the first affordable appliances of their kind, ushering in a new era of home entertainment for the masses.
The company became defunct in 1968, scattering the rights to the Crosley name to the winds, though here the company’s retro-stylings have been invoked with the launch of the new Bermuda Dansette vinyl turntable. One of a range of vintage replicas, this record player’s detachable legs and built-in stereo speakers allow this funky and fashionable piece of furniture to sing in any corner of any room.
