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.
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.

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.
This item looks great (with it's smooth black piano finish) and so far has done a wonderful job. I can finally get some real oldies transfered to my mp3 player. I can honestly say this is the best gift I rec'd this year and recommend it highly.
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 nicest thing I can say is that the plastic cover seemed good.
I'd previously returned a Numark TTUSB to the store because it had developed a wow issue. This product was no substitute, not at any price. As such, I've returned it.
BTW, I'm not very pleased with the seller, either. Beach Camera chose to have me pay all postage to return the unit, costing me almost $15 for a $65 purchase. I'll be interested to see if I get my full money back, and I now know better than to use this seller again.
The only downside is that the editing software recommendation - Audacity (freeware) - doesn't save files back to the original file location. You have to do a "save as" and look for itunes folder by artist/album. But Audacity is a simple tool to remove dust/scratches at the beginning and end of a song. Its easy to fade out songs to minimize record noise.
Word of warning: The turntable can pick up ambient vibration from footsteps and even conversations, so find a quiet place to record. (I was wondering what the background voice was on the beginning of a track, until I realized it was me talking to my wife.)
Also, turn off all computer alerts cause the "dings" and "chirps" get recorded too when they go off.
One last little complaint - the lever that lifts the needle off the record moves the arm, so its not a very precise up and down.
Other than that, you're good to go. I just wish I had kept my vinyl in better condition. But I never thought 25 years ago that I'd be doing this.

First, the the turntable speed is inconsistent (really noticeable on long notes), either due to the belt or under-powered drive motor. Read morePublished 4 months ago by John W. Ross
