There's just something about the warm sound of a vinyl record.

For the first time in 25 years, record player manufacturer Crosley has decided to go retro and bring back the classic vinyl jukebox player, but with a modern twist. Its CR1209A full-sized Rocket Vinyl Jukebox will be the only jukebox in production.

Its stylish yet classic-looking jukebox is decked out in shimmering gold and chrome with a clear glass top over the record changer and player, so that users can see the rotating wheel of vinyl records after making their selection.

The machine will hold 70 7-inch records for a total of 140 separate tunes.

Users can make their selection using classic numbered red buttons, or via remote control.

The jukebox can also be placed in shuffle mode, and will cycle through records until told otherwise.

If you don't have a enough 7-inch records to fill up the machine or want to hear a specific song, the jukebox can also connect to your device via Bluetooth and auxiliary input allows you to tap into the jukebox's speakers.

The front panel features two mid speakers, two tweeters and one 12-inch twin cone bass speaker.

The jukebox Crosely showed off at CES was decked out with hits, and it delivered the warm and powerful sound you'd expect from a vinyl record through a nice amp and speakers.

But, it's going to cost you. The jukebox has a suggested retail price of $11,995.

And it also won't be easy getting one.

Crosley plans to have 16 units ready to ship by April or May of this year, so step in line, rich vinyl lovers.
