Pretty much fantastic,
This review is from: ION Profile LP Vinyl-to-MP3 Turntable (Electronics)
If you're looking for an all-in-one, satisfying, affordable turntable solution, this guy is pretty much your best bet. It feels like it could be sturdier, but it doesn't feel flimsy or particularly cheap. It's actually quite satisfying to use.
I got this so I could integrate it into my Home Theater PC setup, and it works wonderfully. There are a couple caveats, though:
1) The RCA cables come hardwired into the unit, and they are RIDICULOUSLY short. Like, 2 feet. If you're planning on using the RCA output, I'd recommend picking up some extension cables or something.
2) I don't know exactly how the software does the automatic track separation thing, but on more than one occasion the automatic track separation has failed; it'll rip two or more tracks as a single track. Doesn't happen all the time, but be prepared to have to prepare tracks manually on occasion.
Overall, though, I'm happier with this purchase with every day that goes by. Also, a plus, it comes with the large RCA 45 spindle adapter, with its own mounting slot in the turntable platform. So if you have any 45s with the super-large RCA spindle, you're good to go, and it stores away neatly when you're not using it.
