Once upon a time there was such thing as a Sony Walkman portable cassette player, in fact there probably still is. Then came along the Sony Discman, and other brands of portable CD player of course. Now it is all about the portable MP3 player of course, which can be smaller than a box of matches. Before cassettes of course everybody used Vinyl, and surely it really isn’t possible to have a portable vinyl player? Well actually, it is. The two products that we feature on this page have the potential to blow you away, two incredibly innovative products at great low prices; they aren’t just record players either, these two products double up as Vinyl to MP3 converters to allow you to convert your records into MP3 format using any desktop or laptop computer!

Crosley Revolution Portable USB Turntable

What is considered ‘portable’ is of course subjective, but in terms of record players you aren’t going to get any more portable than this incredible portable USB turntable – the Crosley Revolution. Small enough to fit in any bag, even handbags, and possibly even in your pocket if you wear baggy jeans, this record player can go literally anywhere that you do. Perfect for those who want to take a record player on vacation, to hotel rooms, and anybody who is heading off to college and needs to limit what they take with them. It plays any 33 or 45 RPM record. The Crosley Revolution comes complete with headphones, just like an MP3 player would, but it gets a lot smarter than that. It also has two set radio frequency’s which will hijack any FM radio in close proximity when tuned into either one of those bands, it will then hijack the radios speakers and it’s time to turn the volume up! That requires no wires whatsoever.

Alternatively you can connect it to any laptop or desktop PC to use it’s speakers, or indeed to rip the music from your vinyl records and convert it into MP3 format! The possibilities are endless, if your visiting a friend with a tasty vinyl collection then take this with you and convert his best stuff into free MP3 tunes for your iPod, and if you want to buy some new vinyl from a record shop then why not pull your Crosley Revolution out and test out any scratches to ensure that sound quality hasn’t been affected? The absolutely awesome Crosley Revolution has a list price of over $180 but can be yours for less than $120 with free shipping from Amazon, there are four great colors to choose from.

Numark PT01USB Turntable

If you aren’t looking for something quite so portable, then you are probably instead looking for a compact turntable with a built in speaker system, such as the Numark PT01USB. This awesome good value turntable can serve several purposes, perhaps most notable is the ability (just like the Crosley Revolution) to convert your vinyl into MP3 format using just a USB cable, no installation is required on any computer! The Numark PT01USB Turntable is one of the few USB turntables with the ability to play and record older 78 RPM records as well as the standard 33 and 45 RPM records that we are more accustomed with, as a result this turntable makes our selection of the Best 78 RPM USB Turntables.

Asides from its size (as you can see, it’s barely wider than a 12 inch LP), it also has the ability to power itself from batteries rather than an AC adapter, so you could in theory use this USB turntable in the middle of a park, whilst camping, on a beach, absolutely anywhere whether it has a power socket or not. It also comes with a highly convenient hard Numark carry case, as pictured right. The possibilities are pretty much endless. Read our dedicated Numark PT01USB review (via the hyperlink in the first paragraph) or head over to Amazon where at time of writing this can be purchased for under $100 with free shipping despite a normal retail price of $299.99!
