What customers say about "Key Specs"
Crosley C6 (C6A-WA) Belt-Drive Turntable with Built-in Preamp and Adjustable Tone Arm, Walnut
  • I really love this turntable! It's built so solid and I wasn't expecting it to be as nice as it is.
  • It is neat, not cheap looking. It is easy to use, simple and functional, just how I like it.
  • This is a very capable and impressive table. Even with the stock cartridge, music is spacious and full.
  • The bearing, the motor, the platter and all perfect together.
  • This is a great turntable with heavy plinth, very heavy steel platter, aluminum tonearm and replaceable conical stylus.
Crosley C10 (C10A-NA) Hardwood Turntable with Low Vibration Synchronous Motor, Natural
  • This unit far exceeded any expectation. I'm completely satisfied.
  • The speed checked out at nearly perfect by the RPM app. The motor is virtual silent.
  • Great record player. Good sound quality. I'm very happy with this item.
  • Looks great and sounds good until the motor starts humming. We use it nearly every day and it’s brought a lot of joy, however after a couple sides of music the motor will start to hum fairly loudly.
  • No automatic end-of-play arm lift or auto return for couch potatoes and those who doze off after hearing side one.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Crosley C6 (C6A-WA) Belt-Drive Turntable with Built-in Preamp and Adjustable Tone Arm, Walnut
  • The veneer on this one actually looks great and the unit still has a solid feel and good weight to it.
  • The plinth is very nice and the heavy metal platter appears to be the same one which came with my Music Hall. The turntable is very nice due to its size.
  • It is a nice weight and size for everyday use. The tonearm cueing is very well damped and gently lowers the needle onto the record.
  • It looks compact and I thought it would be much heavier. Looks amazing, sounds amazing. Couldn't be happier.
  • Unfortunately the dust cover arrived covered in scratches from the styrofoam packaging. It is also a very large and heavy turntable.
Crosley C10 (C10A-NA) Hardwood Turntable with Low Vibration Synchronous Motor, Natural
  • Beautiful wood turntable. Easy to set up. Fits perfect on a 12" wide bookshelf.
  • The deck arrived well-packed, and was simple to set up. It also looked much smaller than I expected. I am very pleased with the size.
  • Excellent turntable, well built and sounds fantastic. I was also impressed with its size and weight. Highly recommend.
  • I'm very pleased with the compact construction, sound quality, and simplicity.
  • If you want to constantly carry it, this can cause inconvenience because it weighs quite a lot.

What customers say about "Audio"
Crosley C6 (C6A-WA) Belt-Drive Turntable with Built-in Preamp and Adjustable Tone Arm, Walnut
  • I’ve used with and without the built-in preamp, and I’m impressed by the built-in.
  • My ProJect preamp is fairly nice, and was at least as much as this turntable, but I can’t tell much, if any difference from the built-in. I like the built-in preamp.
  • It has a built in preamp and the sound is excellent. Really happy with the purchase and would recommend.
  • No problem so far not having anti-skate and there isn't much distortion of sound.
  • It will not operate at the correct speeds. You WILL need a work-around to enable you to enjoy delightful sounds, instead of chipmunks or really deep, deep, slow voices.
Crosley C10 (C10A-NA) Hardwood Turntable with Low Vibration Synchronous Motor, Natural
  • Mine is amazingly quiet, the supplied Ortofon OM 5E cartridge is really quiet good, and my ears pick up no issues with platter speed.
  • I'm equally impressed with the supplied needle. I'm used to spending 200+ on these. This entry needle is great.
  • The Crosley C10 is a very nice turntable. The sound is good and it looks great.
  • Been playing a lot of my old records, sounds great, easy to set up.
  • The Crosley C10 is an excellent entry level audiophile turntable. Speed control is very accurate.

What customers say about "Features"
Crosley C6 (C6A-WA) Belt-Drive Turntable with Built-in Preamp and Adjustable Tone Arm, Walnut
  • Nice fit, finish, and the steel platter was easy to set-up!
  • Dust cover is well-hinged, and fits nicely. This is a very capable and impressive table.
  • The plinth is nice and feels solid, it's clearly something Pro Ject has helped influence like the C10 etc.
  • I would have preferred to see the on/off switch moved to the front, because it’s too much of an issue using on the back.
  • It was easy to set up, although the counterweight seems to be a bit finicky. Hopefully this one lasts and cue lever doesn't break, as it seems flimsy.
Crosley C10 (C10A-NA) Hardwood Turntable with Low Vibration Synchronous Motor, Natural
  • The tonearm release lever is slow and smooth. It lands in the leader groove without skipping nearly every time. I can't do that with my hand.
  • Turntable cover hinges can be pressure adjusted by two screws on each hinge to make sure lid does not slam down on plinth if opened during playback.
  • Cover can also be easily removed. Setup was easy. Very attractive, minimalist plinth design. Solid MDF construction.
  • Not for someone in want or need of an automatic turntable. Switching between 45 rpm and 33 rpm record speeds annoying.
  • We bought this 1 month ago, worked great , sounded great. Now it sounds like nothing. Because it does not work. Nothing, motor won't spin.
