Ion Audio iPTUSB Customer Review
Overall: 3 out of 5 stars
(see rating details)
Well-featured but cheap-sounding record player.
Sound
When connected by USB, is adds a background buzz that really intrudes on softer music (such as classical). Other than that, the sound quality is functional but nothing special. Midrange and treble sounds fine, but bass carries badly.
Features
Very well featured. Has every connection you could want, powered by battery or wall. Would have been nice if it had been supplied with phono plugs.
Ease of Use
Easily configurable, but auto-start/auto-stop would have been nice, especially on something designed to archive
Quality
Box itself is sturdy but turntable arm is flimsy plastic, and connectors are very poor quality, notably USB.
Value
Hard to compare, it sounds like a record player that costs 50 less, except that it has USB
Musical Background:
Amateur violinist
Musical Style:
Classical, Rock
