The PROFILE LP Turntable
The PROFILE LP is an LP-conversion system based on a multi-speed USB turntable. When not converting records, you can simply enjoy your classic vinyl records using PROFILE LP as a standard record player.

The belt-driven PROFILE LP features 33 1/3 and 45 RPM settings, a high-quality tonearm and cartridge, a raise/lower lever for the tonearm, and a standard RCA output (in addition to the USB port) for use with normal stereo setups.

USB-Enabled
The turntable has simple USB output that enables you to capture music from records onto your computer. No drivers are necessary, simply plug it in to your Mac or PC and the audio will be sent via the USB port.

Conversion Software Included
The PROFILE LP includes a software CD with EZ Vinyl Converter for PC (with auto track detection) and EZ Audio Converter for Mac. They are the simplest way to record and convert vinyl directly to iTunes. Before you know it, you'll be listening to songs you haven't heard in years in iTunes or on your iPod. A free download version of EZ Vinyl Converter with Gracenote MusicID is included for automatic track naming.

Audacity Software for Advanced Processing
Audacity (PC and Mac) is intended for the advanced user. This application allows for advanced audio editing and processing, such as normalization, noise removal, 78 RPM speed conversion, and automatic track separation.

This turntable made a great replacement for the 20 year old one I had been using. The turntable itself was very easy to set up; the included manual outlined the entire process. I did have an issue with the attached RCA cable being very short, only about 3 feet in length. I had to extend it using another RCA cable. The power cord is much longer though, and should reach the nearest outlet easily. The sound is very clear, even on my age-old system. I was, however unaware that the turntable has a pre-amp installed in it, so I was unable to hook it up to the Phono Input in my home theater system; I had to use one of the Aux/CD/Video imports.

I used Audacity to digitally record my albums on a Dell Inspiron running Windows 7, and the device was recognized and configured instantly. PLEASE NOTE that some of the settings may need to be altered, depending on what system you are running (the set-up guide explains this in detail). Other than a couple nuisances, this device was an excellent buy.

I had to download the installation file from their website rather than from the CD (outdated) but once that was installed, I was golden. I wasn't prepared for the mp3's to sound as good as they did. Very, very easy to record songs & they sound great!

I ordered this turntable to replace an old one because the price was right and the software sounded user-friendly. True in both cases, and the audio quality is genuinely good. I was very pleased with the purchase, until, about two months after purchase, it started malfunctioning. I would go to play a record, and as I was moving the arm to the record (there is no "start" button, only a "stop" one-- a definite issue that I wish I'd been aware of), I would feel something catch and it would push the arm back to the cradle. Time after time, it would keep pushing the arm back to the cradle, over and over, no matter if I lifted it high or low. It got, needless to say, very irritating. When I contacted the manufacturer, I was told that it was a mechanical issue and that I would have to return it to them for repair--on my dime, and which would take two to four weeks. Instead, I contacted good ol' Amazon, who of course sent a free replacement right away.

That one worked for about two weeks, until I started noticing a decreasing quality in the sound of my records-- odd volume modulations, distortion, etc. At first I thought it was my speakers or receiver, but when I switched to radio or CD, they sounded great. Nope, it was my wonderful Ion turntable again.

I'm returning it for the second time, this time for just a refund, which I'm applying towards the purchase of a Sony. What a POS. You get what you pay for, guys.

The turntable works great and is so easy to use. Plug in the power, plug in the USB cable, install the software on the CD, push record and start playing and it records the music. Then comes the slow part, the conversion. It takes forever to convert after you're done recording so be patient!
One nice feature is the automatic new track sensor. The software can tell when one track stops and another starts and will automatically start recording a new track for you. After recording, you only have to type the artist and album names once, then you just type in the track names and bam it goes in your iTunes all nice and organized. Sound quality is as good as you can expect from vinyl.

I read the reviews and knew the player was garbage, but I didn't want to spend a whole lot and this one was cheap. I bought this January 16th and its now crapped out on me. The speed has slowed down and the records aren't played at the appropriate speed.

Whoever reads this and you're thinking about buying it because of the price don't. Save your money and buy a better one.

This record player sounds great, works great, but I was pissed about two things. First of all, while you can play the record player through your computer, it cannot actually record the songs if you have a mac. It acts like it is, but then the files don't play and I had to research online to find out that the software is not mac compatible. Second, if you're running it through a stereo system you have to plug it into the audio input, NOT the phono input. I could have saved a lot of time and hassle if they had just explained those two things in their instructions. Hopefully this will help other people!

Really no complaints. The user should have a decent degree of computer literacy to use the editing software, but all in all, it does what it is advertised to do. It also helps that it has a built in pre-amp to connect to the more modern receivers which do not have a specific input for a phono. The built in duist cover is also a nice feature - I had bought an earlier model that did not have this. I would like a cueing lever to slowly place the tone arm on a designated (usually the beginning) point of an LP, and an automatic tone arm return for the end of the record (I had these features on older turntables/changers - maybe just on changers?). It is much easier to connect a turntable to a USB port on a laptop than to have to go through the gyrations of connecting to an audio input (all I have on mine is a microphone input and I don't know if this is a mono or stereo input). Like many people, my desktop PC is not located anywhere near my entertainment center, so the USB connection is a great feature, since I can use it with my laptop. All in all, highly recommended.
