Usb-port: the device features a rear usb port via which the lp signal can be easily sent to the computer while also supplying the peggy sue with power. A suitable usb cable and adapter for fast and uncomplicated connection to mains is also supplied. Quick setup: the peggy sue turntable from auna requires no additional speakers, for the suitcase housing features two stereo speakers that are already installed. You can start playing your favorite records right after plugging in the turntable. Retro-design: though it may seem at first glance like a neat retro suitcase from the 1950s, the auna peggy sue is a portable turntable. The record player is safely stored in a sturdy brown chassis with a handle and carrying strap, that makes it easy to carry. Extendable: for even more sound, the rear rca output provides you with the opportunity to connect the record player to external speakers or your hi-fi system if so desired. The volume may be adjusted continuously via a knob directly on the device.

Analog and digital: not only does the vinyl player play up to 3 different record sizes, it also gives you the opportunity to digitize your lp records. With the auna peggy sue you can bring your favourite vinyl music to a compact digital mp3 format.
