Now I know why I saved all those old 33 1/3 rpm records. Short of a NASA-quality machine, the Ion USB and associated Audacity software is the answer to the dreams of vinyl-savers. I went for the slightly higher-priced Ion rather than the Numark and was glad I did -- the heavy duty dust cover and tone arm lever are well worth it.

The software is awesome, especially to a dummy like me. Though it took me and my computer-wise grandson a few hours to figure it out and get a track recorded, a little fiddling with it will produce your own ritual procedure that will allow you to record tracks and export them as WAV or MP3 files to the desktop, from whence they can easily be dubbed to a CD. The instruction manual, I'm sure, is easily understood by those more in tune with the phrasing, but I found that about three commands do all I need or want. The click and pop removal feature is incredible, and will remove all but the most prominent clicks.

This is a high quality unit with excellent software. I recommend it strongly to any wanting to transfer old records of any speed to CD.

Having read the conflicting reviews on this product, I have to agree with the happy campers who've found this to be a good product.

I haven't set up a new turntable in about 10 years, but I had no trouble setting up the Ion. (But then I had no missing parts to contend with.) Balancing the tone arm was probably the hardest part of the setup -- and that took all of 3 minutes. I found the cartridge totally satisfactory for my needs. The turntable works great with my stereo equipment.

I use a Windows XP laptop together with the Audacity software that's bundled with the turntable. Although the software documentation could be better, I've been able to use it to get many of my favorite songs from vinyl to MP3 format. I'm glad I can now dust off my collection of LPs and 45s and enjoy them anywhere.

Definitely worth the money!

Verified Purchase
I have absolutely no complaints about my purchase. Easy to use and easy to set up. One tip: don't use the Noise filter; it just cuts out the highs.
Thanks, Kevin Daly

Due to other perceived priorities it took me a few days before I assembled this, but it is worth it. My first project was to recover a 50-year old well worn performance of Shostakovitch's #10 by Mitropoulos. It really works, especially the Audacity clean-up application. Just follow the instructions. And herewith are my only carps. The Quick Start Owner's Manual is too brief. One discovers more instructions under the pull-down menus in the application, especially what all the different buttons and "graphs" do. The other minor problem is that the hole in the felt platter pad is too small for the spindle. Simply enlarge with a suitably graduated round pointed tool such as a punch.

Here's some suggestions for making the recording easier. Note, we are not audiofiles, but just a couple with about 200 LPs we want to save and listen to through our MP3 players.

We felt the directions for setting up the turntable was easy to understand, but the software setup, including additional software for cleaning, labeling and converting the tracks, took us at least 5 hours to understand and develop a usable process.

Dowloading software: Audacity was easy to download, but the MP3 patch was hard to find on the internet. You may need to use Google to search for the website, if you want it (we used our Creative Media converter software instead).

Converting the LP to a digital format using Audacity was easy. The instructions for creating the tracking were difficult to understand. The automatic tracking never worked for us. The instructions for manual tracking were too vague and took a lot of trial and error. Note, you must do all the editing before you create the tracks. It also helps to label the tracts like this: 01, 02, 03 to ensure that they are saved in the same order as the orginal LP.

Cleaning up, and adjusting the sound, using another software (e.g., Soundsoap). In order to use this software, you must convert the file into wave format (even if you eventually want to save in MP3 format). We opted later to convert the cleaned up wave files to MP3 in order to save all the ID information on the tracks, which cannot be done effectively in Audacity. Note, your standard converter file (e.g. Creative Media)in addition to allowing you to label the tracks appropriately also might allow you to reconvert back to wave if you find out that you need to clean the file even more.

If you are careful, you will be very happy with the results.

I was extremely excited to get an "authentic" vinyl sound onto my computer via this tunrtable.

Unfortunately, the platter was warped enough to rub annoyingly (making a nice plastic-on-plastic scraping sound) and cause a nasty fluctuation in the sound of the record.

So, after reporting the problem to ION, I decided to just take matters into my own hands and return it to Sharper Image. They kindly and quickly replaced it with a brand new one.

Excited once again, I put it all together. But only to find that the platter was warped worse than the first one.

People have been making (and listening to) turntables for close to a hundred years. Why can't ION make one that works properly now?

The idea of the thing is WAY cooler than the actual product. Disappointment overwhelms me.
