In promotion, ION emphasizes the fact that the iPROFILE is designed to capture the sound of vinyl and make it portable. Thanks to the USB port of this turntable, you can also connect the iPROFILE to your Mac or PC and convert music from vinyl into MP3s. The included EZ Vinyl/Tape Converter software will help to guide you through the steps. Of course, you can also hook this record player up to your stereo system and use it just for listening. The ION iPROFILE will play 33 1/3 RPM vinyl, and includes an adapter that allows you to play 45 RPMs.
