Crosley reports: [edited]
It is a turntable of firsts. The first battery-powered Crosley turntable, the first with a platter smaller than a teacup saucer, and the first with a modern, rubberized finish for on-the-go use. Users can tote this two-speed turntable with them to vinyl swaps or to a friend's house.
Featuring a USB hookup for easy analog-to-digital transfer, the Crosley Revolution will allow users to free their favorites from the grooves for more convenient listening. This turntable also features dual headphone jacks, dynamic full range stereo speakers and a carrying case.

Brett's 2p'orth: I remember a similar item being released as 'competition' to the Sony Walkman. The Audio Technica AT-727 Sound Burger was a high-quality portable record player. Its sales were disappointing, and it is now a sought-after collector's item.
