ION Powerplay LP


$49.00 Released March, 2010

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Sound recording capabilities are high quality. Uses a standard USB port, doesn't require use of awkward Mic or Line In ports that are often hard to reach. Runs off of USB power, very little power draw.

The Cons:No easy way to listen to a record other than through the PC after the file has been transferred. Requires good comfort with computer software in general to make it work. Software won't play through the PC speakers while recording.

The ION Powerplay LP is a turntable built to make digital archiving of LPs as simple as possible. It uses just a single USB wire to a PC or Mac, and draws power from that wire to run. Included EZ Vinyl / Tape Converter software guides users through the process step-by-step of creating new MP3s from vinyl recordings, and automatically transfers them to iTunes.
