With a design that combines the best features of modern audio systems with a rich heirloom appearance, the Crosley CR73-3 Celebrity Entertainment Center is an instant classic. The handsome exterior looks like a Depression-era radio, with a warm cherry veneer housing, an antique-finished metal control panel, and an eye-catching center radio dial augmented by a single contemporary feature--a two-digit LED display. But inside the timeless housing sits a host of modern conveniences, including a front-loading three-disc compact disc changer, a side-mounted cassette deck, and an analog AM/FM radio. To top if off, the lid opens to reveal a three-speed belt-drive turntable that plays your favorite full-length 33-1/3 rpm LPs, old-school 45 rpm singles, and even older-school 78 rpm discs.

The CD player is equipped with such features as a programmable 20-track memory and repeat play (one and all tracks), letting you listen to songs in whichever order you wish. The cassette deck, meanwhile, plays your '80s tape collection. As a final bonus, the Celebrity is completely self-contained thanks to the pair of built-in full-range stereo speakers. All you have to do to enjoy your varied music collection is find an AC outlet and plug in. The Celebrity is a must for music fans who demand convenience and broad functionality without sacrificing aesthetics.

The Celebrity measures 18 by 11.25 by 12.5 inches (W x H x D) and is backed by a 90-day warranty.

Customer Reviews:
  • Crosley Entertainment System
    I was very impressed by how quickly and well packed my system arrived from Abe's of Maine [...] . The product itself has excellent speakers and diversity in the system itself because it plays CD's, record albums and cassette tapes. The oak finish is beautiful and warm. The only downside that I have found, is that you cannot fast forward or rewind the cassette tapes - but, heck, cassette tapes are nearly relics anyway. It's nice to have a stereo system that handles them at all. Overall, I have had a great experience with the product and the seller. ...more info
  • CD Player didn't work
    The CD player didn't work if you had all 3 CD inside, and after the 2nd attemp it got jammed. We had to spend a couple of minutes turning the device on and off hoping it would open the CD player. I returned the item, disappointment since this was a christmas present....more info
  • Great Concept, Poor Execution
    I bought this as a Christmas gift for my Mom. Unfortunately, the CD part stopped working the first day and we had to pry the door open to get the CDs out.

    After a couple of calls to Crosley tech support (who, in fairness were very polite and tried to be helpful), we all came to the conclusion that it was a lemon and the only solution was to send it back to Amazon for a replacement.

    For the day it worked, it was pretty nice. A very attractive piece .. the cherry is pretty ... with a decent sound .. though don't expect the quality of a high end stereo system. All in all, a nice system for the price that blends in with traditional decor. However, since mine didn't work, I can only give it two stars.

    I was worried about getting another unit that didn't work, so opted for a refund. I may end up re-purchasing locally. Not sure yet.

    Three cheers to Amazon for making the return process easy. Customer service even offered to refund me for the CDs that were stuck in the machine if I couldn't get them out.

    One note about speakers. Crosley has many variations of these entertainment centers. Some have auxiliary outputs where you can hook up additional speakers and some do not. If you intend to do this, beware .. this model (at least in cherry) DOES NOT. Read the specifications carefully.

    Just bought another for my friends....more info
  • pretty but doesn't work
    It is an attractive piece of furniture but the cd part didn't work. Soo Amazon replaced it with another one. That one didn't work either for the same reason. Amazon said they would return my money but when I considered that the radio and the turntable and the audio tape worked ok, for $200.00 and it looked good, perhaps I was expecting too much. Therefore I kept it even though it doesn't completely work....more info
  • Loved it With Reservations...
    I liked this product however please be aware that the sound quality isn't remotely as good as a modern stereo or home theatre system especially in the volume and bass department. I choose to hook up a couple of quality speakers to my unit which was easy and I really enjoy it now. However others might not feel that way. The actual unit is beautiful and very easy to use. I am happy with my purchase however please be warned that the sound quality/speakers it comes with are not that great. ...more info

    The tuner for the radio portion of it was broken right out of the box. Find another company that has better product testing before they sell it....more info
  • A Good Purchase
    I had bought this item to give to my in-laws for Christmas. Needless to say, they are loving it. It provides good sound quality with every option, from the FM/AM radio turner, 3-disc CD player, cassette player, to the turntable. I thought since the turntable did not come complete with a tone adjuster of its own, it would be lacking; however, the albums sound great and do not need any adjusting. Plus, the classic look of the cherry wood box adds an element of design that fits perfect in one package. Did I mention the sound quality - I am very pleased with the purchase! It has been only a few months in use, and hopefully will remain in good condition....more info
