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.

December 30, 2010 ION Profile--What a Treat!

Bought this on an impulse. What a great new toy! I've got piles of LPs and 45 singles from the 60s and 70s. Havent been able to play them in years and am in the process of converting them all to MP3 for my Ipod. What a blast to take this walk down memory lane. I dont understand some of the negative reviews. It works great. And yes, I'm using a MAC--one reviewer said it didnt record with his Mac. I installed the Mac compatible software that came with the turntable and it works great. Very simple and the conversion is FAST. About 15 seconds per track for the actual conversion process. I love this thing and will finally be able to get all these dust-collecting, space-hogging vinyl records retrieved and then outta here! Highly recommended.

November 16, 2010 Distorted sound

Mechanically, the turntable works well. However, it lacks any way to attenuate the output, and it overloads the program for making CD's to such an extent as to make it unworkable. It badly needs a control to attenuate the output!!
