Crosley Dansette Bermuda review

In combination with the latter are a pair of clasps on either side to make the Bermuda portable, although it runs off mains power only, from a little wall-wart transformer.

Out of the box, the four leg holes underneath are plugged with plastic bungs, so the Crosley Bermuda can be sat on a table or sideboard, but there are four rather nice, ebonised-wood legs supplied that screw into the holes and make the Bermuda freestanding.

The tonearm has none of the sweeping grace of the old Dansette units – it s just a metal tube with a cheap-looking plastic headshell and a little metal counterweight.

Ouch.

Just don t expect anything approaching high fidelity – the sonics are more akin to a mid-priced Bluetooth speaker than an entry-level micro hi-fi.

As with the Cruiser II, I feel like Crosley should invest more in the turntable components and hike up the price a little.
