Excerpt: Simplicity is the word. Almost too simple. Smallest turntable in the world. It works well.. works even better considering the price. I was up and running within 10 minutes. Mediocre software and a glitch in the setup or it would be 5 star. When first starting to record the input level was clipping and distorting even when turned all the way down with provided software.
Excerpt: I have some old LP albums I have wanted to upgrade to CD since about 12 years ago. I also have some tapes of interviews with my mom, aunts and uncles who are all deceased now. It's great to have made them digital.
Excerpt: Super-easy interface. Automatically splits into tracks, copies directly to iTunes, small enough to live on my desk for a bit if I'm doing a lot of records. My only complaint was I had a hard time loading the install disc (some iMac superdrives are notorious for spitting out discs for unknown reasons) but was able to get the driver from ION's website in minutes.
Excerpt: If you are looking for an affordable device to quickly transfer some cassettes and vinyl records to digital format - than this machine works great. My view is based on only using this machine for less than a month. I prefer to use Audacity (freeware) for editing the sound files since it has more features then the software that comes packaged with the machine. I'm using the machine to convert old 45 vinyl records that are part of "Read Along" books to MP3 format.
