    Don’t be put off by the price of this little guy (cheap doesn’t always mean bad). Perfect small turntable comes with two software programs for CD conversion of desired. Reasonable built in speaker (ok so it’s not surround sound stereo!) allows for playback at record shows, while you’re on vacation etc… Battery option allows sound-hounds to check quality at garage sales before buying… Alltogether a nice turntable for the price. I upgraded from the ITTUSB, and am very happy with my decision. Built in carry case makes this perfect in my book! Ok so not the kind of thing you’d buy to create your ‘home theatre’ system, but ideal for the hobbyist/small time vinyl explorer

    I’m not sure what the deal is with the buzz in this thing. I have seen one or two other mentions of it, besides the review here. Some reviews specifically mention that there is no buzz whatsoever, another mentioned that there was a buzz specifically in the USB. In my case, I was getting a buzz from the headphone jack and the built-in speaker. I did not try the line out. I was all set to pack it up and send it back, but decided to just try the USB anyway. I was surprised to discover that there was no buzz in the USB output. Since my whole purpose was to convert vinyl to digital, and not to add a component to my stereo system, then the USB connection gives me all the capability I need. Even as a stereo component, the buzz might not be all that bothersome. It is not very noticeable on average-to-loud music, only comes forward on the softer passages. Indeed, I wasn’t even aware of it until I brought up a digital recording (made from the headphone output) to edit. I saw the buzz on screen before I heard it, but once I was aware of it, it was intolerable for archival purposes. I wondered if the buzz might be caused by bad grounding or other interference in the AC circuit, but the buzz is still there even when running on batteries and nothing else whatsoever connected (i.e.–listening to the built-in speaker.)

    Anyway, for what it does do, I am happy enough with this. I find the sound quality (from the USB!) to be more than adequate. I like the lightness and portability. It is very easy to set up and use temporarily, do a few records when time permits, and then close it up and get it out of your way when done, does not claim a dedicated chunk of real estate somewhere on your desk or on your shelf.

    I would have done the “gain” knob for the USB a little differently. First of all, I would have placed it on the top surface (where the other controls–volume, tone, and speed) are, instead of recessed on the side where you can hardly see it (I have to use a flashlight!) and it’s difficult to operate. Also, it would have been nice to have tick marks so that you can line up the notch on the knob with a specific gain setting. Also, it seems a little counterintuitive to turn the knob counterclockwise for increased gain.

    I have only used this product a few times since I bought it. I have a newer (2008) iMac running Mac OS X 10.5. There are two software products which come with the turntable – one is supposed to be easier and one (Audacity) is supposed to be more feature-rich and capable. Well, I could not get the easier software to run properly, so I use the Audacity program.

    The turntable works fine. No complaints. However, using the Audacity software makes recording a vinyl album very time consuming. You must stop after EACH TRACK to input the track information. With the simpler program, you could enter each track’s info on the fly while the turntable continues to record the next track (but I could not get this program to actually record). If you don’t care about the track information, I suppose you could record each side of an album as one mp3 file. But if you want to know which song you are playing and which album after you transfer the file to your iPod, you must do each track separately. Not difficult, mind you, but takes a while.

    I did read the other review, and I completely disagree! My ION is fantastic*****. I have already transferred over 30 of my vinyl LPs (and a few 45s) to disc. I think the other guy is faking, or just does not know what he is doing. The ION is feature rich, plus it performs perfectly. From just my friends seeing mine in use, I know I got ION at least 3 more sales. Thank you, ION.

    I did ALOT of research trying to find a usb turntable for my husband to record his favorite LPs. I read reviews from other people and finally decided on this one. Literally 2 minutes after hooking it up, he was recording the first song. This model also allows for listening while recording. I had read reviews that said with some models you couldn’t listed while recording. This was a must for me. Also a GREAT price.
