LP 2 CD Is A Direct To CD USB TurntableIon Audio has continued development of their ever popular USB Turntable to now include a direct-to-CD model version. Forget about connecting the USB turntable to your PC and forget about burning CDs through your computer too.
The LP 2 CD is your one-stop shop. This is the fastest and easiest way to convert your vinyl records to CD. Simply place your record on the turntable, insert a blank CD and record your album. ION Audio includes EZ Vinyl Convert 2 for the PC user and EZ Audio Converter for the Mac in case you are still interested in compressing the audio to MP3 so you can dump it into iTunes. I would think ION Audio created the LP 2 CD unit for non-technical people looking to convert their records to CD without a computer and dealing with software setup and configuration, burning software etc, the LP 2 CD allows novice computer users to quickly and easily convert their albums to CD. The LP 2 CD is not yet available, but with the USB Turntables at about $110, you can expect this model version to be just under $200. I will update this article when the equipment is available for purchase. In the mean time, if you just can’t wait I would suggest the USB turntable without burning ability, which is currently available. ION Audio LP 2 CD product page.
