Beautiful and Great Sound. I bought this for my 24 year old son for Christmas. He is very much into collecting and playing old record albums. He was very pleased with this Entertainment Center. Great sound, retro look that he was looking for and the bonus is that he can listen to the radio, play CD's and connect his iPhone and iPad. He is very, very happy with this Entertainment Center. Great product at a great price.
Exactly what I had hoped for! I have been searching for this type of alarm clock since before Christmas, and had wanted to give it to my husband. I never could find what I wanted. Fathers'Day around the corner, I decided to give it another shot, and found my alarm clock, exactly what I wanted, best price, and free shipping!
World's Largest Car Cell Phone. Drivers using cell phones give a triple take when they see a passenger "talking" on a candlestick phone. For a 77 year-old who no longer drives the candlestick phone makes trips less boring. Perhaps you could convert a few to workable cell phones. I'll bet they would sell (I'd get one free). Why? Long trips get boring.
Classic Good Looks. Shopped all the websites for the best price on this great phone. "Retro Showroom" had the best deal. It has classic detailing, brushed chrome for the updated appeal. My family loves this phone--not only does it look great--its so fun. Coins dropped into the slots have the sounds of the old time pay phone. My daughter's friend suggested that we tell guests that there is charge to use the phone to make $ from it. Maybe...not such a bad idea! It could pay for itself in a short time.
The phone is great. Pretty good [...]. It's fun and pretty authentic. Because of it's inherent difficulty of use, a speaker-phone option would make it more than something to look at but a useful tool as well. If you talk the manufactures into adding this feature, I do expect a complementary one:-) Regards, Eric Samell
In 1920 Powel Crosley founded the company that pioneered radio broadcasting and mass market manufacturing around the world. Dismayed with the $130 price tag for the radio receiver he promised to buy for his son’s birthday, Crosley decided to make his own. Upon successfully building a working set for only $35, Crosley was quick to spot the mass market potential.
It was a simple idea - design a fully functioning radio, meticulously craft each unit with obsessive detail and precise accuracy, and of course add a measure of consideration for the wallet.
This simple idea led Crosley Radio to become the world’s largest radio manufacturer while Powel Crosley became known as ‘The Henry Ford of Radio.’ His relentless fascination with mechanical devices, coupled with his intense desire for success, sent Crosley’s career soaring.
Today the Crosley name lives on with superbly detailed replicas that truly transcend time. Reintroductions of original vintage radios and turntables feature the newest technologies graced by unforgettable Crosley stylings. The Crosley Collection includes AM/FM radios, portable suitcase - styled record players and turntables, record changers, multi-functional audio cassette/compact disc players, jukeboxes, music boxes, telephones and more. Rich lines, retro designs and authentic crafting have made Crosley today’s premier vintage electronics manufacturer. True to the Crosley tradition, these replicas are as fabulous as they are functional, providing a delightful dose of nostalgia.
Crosley is passionate about what they do, right down to the last exacting detail. They're obsessed with creating innovative, yet vintage-inspired products that will encourage customers to return to a simpler time. From their extensive product line to their dedication to authenticity, they're sure you’ll have as much fun shopping for your Crosley as they had crafting it.
