Frequently Asked Questions
Where can I order a new stylus. Where can I get one?
The Classic LP utilizes a high-quality Audio Technica AT3600L stylus and magnetic cartridge which can be found at various third-party retail locations online. They can also be ordered directly from ION Audio by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org
How do I connect this to my home stereo?
If you have connected speakers to the Classic LP using the RCA Audio Output connections, do NOT connect the RCA cables to a Phono input as this could damage your speakers. Ensure that you connect them to a line-level input such as AUX, CD, or TAPE.
What speed records can this play?
This turntable can playback 33 / 45 / 78. There is a switch that controls the RPM of the turntable platter.
Will this work on a PC & Mac?
The Classic LP is compatible with both Windows and Mac computers out of the box.
Is this powered by a USB port?
No. The Classic LP is powered with the included 12V DC 1A pin-positive power supply.
My record is skipping, what should I do?
If the record is skipping, try cleaning the record directly using standard LP cleaning techniques. For some materials that can help with the cleaning of your vinyl, you can find the VINYL ALIVE Record Cleaning Kit on the ION Audio website. If the record continues to skip, consider replacing the stylus.
Why does my turntable move when I push on it?
This is normal! The turntable mechanism base, platter & tonearm are engineered to float above the wood platform on isolation mountings to allow you to play music through the built-in speakers without feedback.

No, I’m not an “audiophile” so I won’t try to bamboozle you with expertise. I just wanted to find a turntable that could play the large collection of 78s that I recently inherited. My existing good-quality Pioneer direct drive PL-500 does not have 78 RPM as an option.
After examining the various options (including retro-fitting the Pioneer PL-500 to play at 78), I decided to take a gamble on the ION Audio Classic LP. Make no mistake, this is a “cheap” turntable. It’s plastic and seems quite delicate. The main mechanism seems to be an OEM device re-packaged by various manufacturers who simply add the exterior shell and such.
That said, ION has one of the more attractive packages. This turntable is, first off, not an eyesore. Second, once I hooked it up properly (as ION representatives stress, do not attach it to the Phone port on your stereo but to a regular RCA input such as “Tape”) with shielded RCA cables, it sounded very good. And I highly recommend spending a few dollars more for a shielded cable.
After that, it all depends on the quality of your records and stereo system. (I’m playing through an old JVC RX-309 receiver with a pair of Ohm model C2 speakers.) I have found in the case of a good-quality 78 record (using the special 78 RPM replacement cartridge), I achieved a high quality of sound that I didn’t expect. I would assume the same would be true of the regular 33/45 cartridge that comes standard with it.
I haven’t used the software because I have no interest in digitizing the music. The fun is in truly playing the records retro-style. The one obvious and glaring flaw of this unit is the auto-shutoff feature. It’s not adjustable and many of the records shut off before reaching the end. You can turn off the auto-shutoff feature but this is a poor work-around for a feature that should have been more precise and adaptable to begin with.
Other than that, this is a question of getting very good value for $47.00. I don’t suspect it will last more than a few years if played regularly. But who know? It’s a delicate unit, but with care it could last quite a while. Frankly, the price is in the area of if it breaks in a few years, I’ll just get another one or try to fix it myself.
Also, the plastic lid of this unit came with a huge crack in it. ION customer service sent one out and I had a replacement within two days. From a customer service standpoint, they are outstanding.
that I was looking for but how was I going to play or hear it without a turntable? Not just any turntable but one to hook and connect to my computer to make me a CD to play in my car that's where amazon came in. I didn't want to spend too much money on something I wasn't going to use that often low and behold I went on amazon and I found the perfect turntable and it didn't cost that much.
