With streaming services having become the go-to for our music needs, practically every other standard has been left in the dust. Despite the ease of use our phones provide, many still stand by the quality of vinyl. For those that find nothing comes close to the sound of classic vinyl, Crosley Radio’s new Rocket Jukebox is sure to be the ultimate way to kickback and enjoy a record.

Looking to be an unparalleled companion for any hardcore vinyl enthusiast, Crosley Radio’s Rocket Jukebox is said to be the only record-playing jukebox manufactured anywhere in the world. While typical record players have become more popular in recent years, something like this definitely stands out. Complete with a design straight out of the 1950’s, it sports retro multicolor lighting, vintage decals as well as stainless steel accents to wrap-up the aesthetic.

Thanks to a unique rotating storage mechanism, the Vinyl Rocket holds up to 70 different records. And with the ability to play both A and B sides of a vinyl, you’ll have access to a total of 140 albums. Built-in label management software allows you to easily catalog your collection within the machine as well. As for selecting the tunes you want to play, the Rocket is controlled with buttons on the front of the cabinet, just as you’d find with most other jukeboxes. A remote control is also included with the vinyl player, which offers access to adjusting volume and playing/pausing new albums.

Of course without a killer speaker system, that desired vinyl quality is lost. Which is why within the Vinyl Rocket’s handmade casing you’ll find a top-notch five-component audio system comprised of a D4 amplifier that powers dual tweeter and mid drivers as well as a single 12-inch twin cone bass speaker.

While Vinyl Rocket’s emphasis has clearly been placed on reviving those old records, that doesn’t mean it forgoes the modern comforts of a typical speaker. While you won’t find built-in music streaming, it does come equipped with Bluetooth and auxiliary inputs. So for that inevitable occasion when you don’t have a vinyl for that song stuck in your head, you’ll still be able to enjoy the Rocket’s high-quality speakers.

Something as unique as Crosley’s Vinyl Rocket is a prime subject for a massive price tag, which is why it’ll run you a whopping $12,995. With its incredibly snazzy looks and high-quality audio output, it’s sure to be one of the most enjoyable ways to listen to music; that is unless you enjoy portability and don’t have a small fortune burning a hole in your pocket.

If you’re aching to dig out your old vinyls but don’t have a record player any more, 1byone turntable has wood trim, steel faceplate and comes in at just $50.

The unique rotating vinyl mechanism holds 70 records and can play both A and B sides (140 selection). The Jukebox features a revolving title rack that allows you to easily select your favorite record and our label magic software enables you to create your own labels each time you update the machine with your favorite vinyl. Record selections can be made directly from the button bank on the machine or via the remote control that also controls the volume, shuffle play and record reject. The vinyl Rocket incorporates a Bluetooth receiver giving you the ability to stream digital music from any compatible device and has auxiliary outputs, input and additional speaker connections. Great sound is guaranteed from needle to ear via our D4 amplifier and five way in built speaker system.
