Vestax Portable Turntable Lets You Spin 45s from the Road

I've always been a fan of vinyl, and while the thought of a portable record player sounds cool, something about this player tells me I shouldn't keep my expectations too high. But for $169, the belt-driven Handy Trax Portable Black Limited Edition lets you play your scratchy vinyl collection (33, 45, and 78 RPM vinyls) from anywhere on the road. It can even be powered by batteries and the built-in speaker means you don't have to worry about connecting it to any components. Tempting, but I'll stick with my Debut III for now.
