2. Crosley Cruiser II - ~$80-90
Made of wood and bound in a leatherette material, this briefcase-style turntable is lightweight and easily transported (although we don't actually recommend trying to play vinyls while you run around the city). It features built-in stereo speakers and an RCA Audio output, just in case that's not enough sound for you.
An AC power adapter is included, but the available battery power (using 6 AA batteries) makes for true freedom--you never have be tethered to an outlet again! Cruise over to a friend's house and experience vinyl's superior sound together.
