ION Profile Pro USB Turntable


$100.00 Released January, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Comes with the large RCA 45 spindle adapter for super-large RCA spindle 45s. Very simple and straightforward process for ripping: press record and start playing. Automatic track sensor is very handy, automatically breaks up files into separate tracks.

The Cons:RCA cables come hardwired into the unit and they are very short (about 2 feet). Included editing software isn't very user friendly. Included driver CD is outdated, not worth the bother-download the driver's from ION's website.

Boyd Dunson: #ion_profile_pro_usb_turntable The first two hits I found for this both state that it plays 78s and that is not the case. Jan 18, 11

    Anonymous: You can play your 78's with the software; it will be recorded on your computer. Jan 21, 11
