Crosley Collegiate Turntable brewing kits
Then again, if dad wants to take his vinyl to go, this isn't such a bad option, either. Even before the recent vinyl resurgence, Crosley has been treating records as if they'd never gone out of style. That shows up in the Collegiate, which looks a whole lot like a 1960s-vintage portable record player and, with its built-in leather handle, can pick up and go at any time. Even if dad doesn't feel like lugging this to his buddies' barbecues, it connects to other devices through its USB port and allows him to rip songs from his LPs and 45s to MP3s.
