I looked forward to using this turntable, and to burn vinyl tracks to my computer. Everything seemed to work all right and there was much to like about it. BUT, the sound from the turntable/cartridge was not very good (cheap). And, for some reason, the tone arm or the cartridge skipped incessantly in places on the records that never skipped with my other turntable. I did all the adjustments required and it didn't fix the problem. So I returned it. Maybe others will have more success.

While the iLP was very easy to use, I was extremely disappointed in the loud 60Hz hum that could be heard in the background during quiet passages or in between tracks. It makes the music tracks nearly unlistenable - it's that distracting. I have other music equipment, including turntables, that do not exhibit this hum, so I'm asolutely certain it's the iLP - not my studio wiring.

The automated track-splitting feature, when connecting the iPod directly to the turntable, did not work at all - probably because the software perceived the hum as part of the tracks. It records the whole side of the record as one long track. The iPod software did load easily and is easy to use - I give it that much credit. Used an iPod Touch 4th Gen 8Gb as the recording source.

The box indicates that a USB cable, CD with software, and user guides were to be included but none of those items were in the packaging - only the turntable and the power supply (wall wart). This was a brand-new, unopened package - taped shut once at the factory. So there is something very wrong with quality control at the China facility that manufactures this product.

I will be returning this to the store and seeking an alternative. If anyone has a recommendation, please comment - THANKS!

I did a lot of research and chose this unit for playing LP's but also having the capability to convert my Lp's to digital. I bought the unit from Kohl's and out of the box, it all seems easy, well built, decent quality for the price. However, I haven't even had a chance to convert yet b/c when I hooked up my RCA cables to my receiver, the unit started playing in what I considered mono. After a minute or two, it kicks in....sound quality perfect and plays along well for a little while. Randomly, after a couple records, after the needle is resting and the unit is not spinning, it's almost like it cools down and has a chance to create the issue again. I place another record on and oddly, it plays in mono for a little while until it gets back to normal.

Obviously, this isn't good for listening, or converting, so I tried it on a different receiver and the same thing. Then, I bought new RCA cables and it did do less often, but bad enough that I finally had to call customer service. Sounds like a RCA issue or moreover a bad chipset inside (?) considering it's more than just a belt driven player like older ones with no digital conversion options. That's where I am now, with a repair ticket or replacement option, which hopefully will be resolved expeditiously. I hope Ion or (inMusic Brands) can pull through and make me a happy customer as the product seems pretty cool and I'm excited to use it. I will follow up with review in due course.

+ Plug-n-Play
+ Direct recording (sort of) to a compatible iDevice

- Power button in the rear, difficult to get to
- No light to indicate whether device is turned ON or OFF
- No charging of iDevice while docked
- No audio output capability for iDevice while docked
- EZ Vinyl app for iDevice has too many functional limitations and bugs
- Cannot import recordings directly to Music Library on iDevice (must first export to iTunes)

I have used other LP conversion tools before, and this Plug-n-Play unit is by far the simplest. But simplicity in this case does not equate to quality or ease of use. However, I will keep my unit since I can still use it for a quick conversion every now and then, especially where sound quality is not too important. Hopefully something more thoughtful will come along in the future.

The biggest complaint for me is that the Track Splitting feature of the software app doesn't work very well. Better to turn it OFF and press the New Track button manually between songs while recording. Which means you have to spend time sitting by the turntable as you record. (Silver lining: you get to listen to the whole album as you probably did in the old days!) Another flaw is that there is no Pause button while recording. As soon as you finish one side, you have no choice but to stop the recording and enter the track info. Then you have to do it again for the other side. (Whoever designed this app probably never had to listen to a vinyl album before in his or her young life!!!) After all that, you then have to export the songs to iTunes and somehow merge them back into one album, then re-import them back to your iDevice where you recorded the songs in the first place. Very, very poor software design and testing, IMO.

After reading the other four reviews of this product, I was a little worried for my purchase. I was a wreck thinking that I had spent $100 on a piece of trash that won't work right. I can tell you now, that I was very wrong. This turntable plays my old records perfectly and produces great sound! The app and computer software work fairly well, with its only flaw being that it never correctly deciphers the changing of tracks, even though it says it can. However, there is an option to manually say when a new song begins. This works without any problems. I am thrilled with my purchase and am sure that you will too.
