It’s easy to act all old-school when there are products like the Crosley Songwriter CD Burner to cover up your modern streak.
This burner allows you to transfer LPs or cassettes to CD, and look very old-fashioned while doing so. Born Rich says it also has a 3-speed turntable, in case you just want to listen to your old records.
Crosley says that the unit plays MP3 and WAV files, and supports CD-R/RW. For the vinyl, it will play 7-, 10- or 12-inch records in 33 1/3, 45 or 78 RPM speeds. Other features include an AM/FM radio and digital tuner.
There are cheaper, more compact solutions out there, but this would be a neat addition for someone that is going for the classic style in their high-tech entertainment area.
The classics don’t come cheap though: For the presentation, be prepared to shell out $400.
