Product Description

The PROFILE series of LP-conversion systems is designed with contemporary, low-profile looks and is finished in sleek, piano black. Each model is designed to capture the music from your vinyl records and turn it into portable, flexible, digital MP3s that you can enjoy at home and on the go. iPROFILE is an LP-to-iPod conversion system with a multi-speed USB turntable. You can play records and transfer them directly to your iPod thanks to iPROFILE's integrated Universal Dock for iPod. Record-to-iPod transfer works even if you don't have a computer. iPROFILE also has easy-to-use USB output that enables you to capture music from records onto your computer. ION’s EZ Vinyl/Tape Converter software assists you in creation of flexible MP3 files you can listen to on your computer, load onto your iPod, or record to CD. When not converting records, you can also enjoy your classic vinyl records using iPROFILE as a standard record player. It has a standard, line-level output with built-in preamp so you can connect it to virtually any stereo system.

I originally thought this would work with a set of powered speakers, but it does not. It only has the old phono output plugs, so it needs to go through an amplifier. That worked fine right away, but playing through a computer USB port took days to get working. One problem I found was that I had to unplug my webcam (which has audio input) to capture the turntable output on my PC. No settings on my PC worked until I unplugged the camera. Recording then worked fine. Integration with iTunes is great when recording.

Next problem was playing the iPod through the amplifier. ION help eventually explained that you have to set the turntable to LINE output instead of PHONO output (switch on the back) and then plug into the CD input of the amp instead of the Phono input. Then the turntable and the iPod both work. No mention of that in the manual though.

Would be 5 stars if manual explained configuration better.

So I did a considerable amount of research looking for the perfect vinyl player for me, and this is the one that I decided on. And I love it. I live on a college budget, so wasnt able to get a reciever/speaker combo to complete the perfect setup, but WAS able to find a really great set of computer speakers with an RCA input, logitech z523. With this set up I have been more than pleased with the sound quality the ion puts out there. Since I bought this product mainly for listening rather than converting vinyl to MP3, I have not yet used the conversion software or the voice memo service that records tracks straight onto your iPod.

Pros:
Great output and crisp accuracy with the sound
rubber (antistatic) plate
DUST COVER (not all record players have these, and I dont really know why)
turntable speed seems accurate
iPod dock will also play music through the output (so if you want to switch to listening to your iPod through the same speakers, all you have to do is put it on the dock, stop the record, and play the song)
sleek design
arm returns to resting position when record is done (also not something that all record players do believe it or not)
small clip to hold the arm in the resting position (also not on all record players that I find comes in handy)
LP volume knob and on/off switch

Cons:
you have to control the iPod using the controls provided on the ion (but once you get used to it, its no big deal)
dust cover, in order to provide space for the ipod, leaves a small edge of the vinyl exposed to open air

Overall this is a great product and I am very happy with my purchase of it. I have had it for about a month and had no issues what-so-ever and will update if any arise.

After my old turntable that I used to convert my records stopped working, I purchased the Iprofile and the process was made so easy. I use Windows Vista and Itunes. I also find the album artwork and info on various sites to put into a spreadsheet so I can cut and paste the info into the software programs so I don't do allot of typing. I guess it would be allot less time consuming and expensive to just buy the songs online but I like the pops when listing to my mp3 as it brings back memories. Besides, I can't find allot of the albums on line. I sold my old turntable and records and offset some of the cost of the Iprofile. I have read the negative reviews and have to disagree.

At first I couldn't understand how to get the player to use sound & to convert music to iPod. Both ended up to be extremely simple. To connect a speaker to the record player you need to have 2 RCA female cables & 1 3.5mm female cable or a 3.5mm coupler. To record songs to iPod just connect it to the dock, go to 'voice memos' & select record. Amazing sound and quality.

I have had a collection of LPs in storage.Some are over fifty years of age.
I found the Ion audio profile easy to install and use and am delighted
to listen to some tunes that are unavailable.

This turntable is so good that I feel I HAVE to write about it. So this is officially my first review! The turntable sound is so good that you can hear each instrument, as well as the distinctive and warm cracking of vinyl as if you were inside a perfect acoustic chamber. Add to that the possibility of recording your beloved albums directly to your ipod, and listen to them on the go or burn them on cd for your friends, and you get one of the best products for your money! I absolutely love it!

This turntable is just fantastic! The hardest part was downloading and installing the Windows 7 compatible EZ-Vinyl-converter software from the Ion website which took about 5 minutes. I was up and running in 15 minutes. I'm highly impressed with this product and would highly recommend it. Great job Ion!!!
