ionAudio means to prove us that turntables don’t have to be plugged into power outlets and connected to powerful speakers in order to be functional. The ION Vinyl Motion portable turntable, now discounted in our store, is perfect proof for that.
ION Vinyl Motion brings retro turntables to the 21st century, while still maintaining a retro vibe. Most importantly, however, this turntable is portable, meaning that you don’t have to stay at home to enjoy your LP records.
Vinyl discs and turntables always make my heart skip a beat. As I’ve mentioned before, I grew up listening to progressive rock and heavy metal LPs that were brought to me at the tender age of 6 or 7 by my eldest cousin. Because those bands still have special place in my mind, this medium is something that I will always treasure.
Some of the details that set the ION Vinyl Motion apart from many other turntables is the ability to work using nothing else than the built-in battery as the source of power. Recharging that battery is fairly easy, as well. Not only will you be able to charge the battery quickly, but you’ll also get to listen to music for hours on end, as the battery is quite long-lasting. Besides the retro design and the versatility, this has to be one of the main things that most people who bought one of these appreciated.
If for some reason you want to leave the LPs at home and listen to digital files, instead, you have the option to convert records using the included converter software. Granted, you’ll lose some of the audio quality, but that’s the price you have to pay for additional mobility.
The system requirements for converting the LPs to digital files are as follows:
- Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP Macintosh OS X 10.4 to 10.10
- CPU: Windows – 1GHz Pentium 4 CPU or higher Macintosh – 1GHz PowerPC G4 or Intel CPU or higher
- RAM: 1GB or higher
- Available hard drive space: 300MB or higher
Included in the package are the following items:
- Vinyl Motion Turntable (Black)
- 45 RPM adapter
- Felt slipmat
- USB cable
- Quickstart guide
- Safety & warranty manual
- EZ vinyl/tape converter software CD
Many thought that LPs would share the same fate as tapes, but that definitely wasn’t the case. Vinyl discs produce a far superior sound to tapes and many other mediums, and they are appreciated by more than just audiophiles.
