Ion Audio introduced the USB turntable a while back. It’s an excellent tool for converting vinyl records to MP3. It’s interesting to see the growth of this product from when I first reported on it. At the time back orders took nearly 6 weeks to fill, now I see them at Costco and every holiday mail-order magazine that appears on my doorstep.
Ion Audio has stepped it up – and I’m thinking it’s from popular demand. The Ion USB turntable now has an iPod dock station so going from LP to iPod is nothing more than pushing a button. I doubt these guys dropped the USB connection because at this point it’s not really necessary. The iPod USB turntable supports the 5GB and Nano and probably all current models.
At just $259 it makes for an ideal Christmas gift, especially for the older folks on your list (no offense).
