I have to say that I am massively disappointed with this. I have not had the same software problems that some have had, I downloaded the software as required and run it with no issues on Windows 8. The problems begin when you start to play records. I am copying my huge collection of vinyl from my Dj'ing days so I have a very keen ear. This turntable can not hold its speed at all and fluctuates horribly causing your tracks to be so out of tune they are unbearable and more to the point, un-mixable in mp3 format. I will be taking this back for a refund, 1 day after purchasing and after trying to only copy 6 records, very dissappointed!
This turntable is incredibly easy use. I received it well packed, with plenty of instructions on how to set up. I used it with a vista laptop and downloaded the latest driver from the ionaudio site. The only thing I needed to alter was the sound microphone settings to CD quality. Play back was really impressive considering the budget price.
Just what I wanted - does exactly what is describes and into the bargain it looks good - thanks Maplin - great price too.
I don't plan to use the recording facilities, so my review will come from purely a vinyl listener's perspective. The quality is incredible for the price. This one replaced the hopeless one I had before, and for roughly the same price I got an absolutely fantastic deal. The sound quality is great, it is free from technical faults and on top of that, it looks great! I would strongly recommend this product for any vinyl fans wanting excellent quality at a reasonable price.
Good product. Keen price. Quick delivery.
Well - it's not a hifi deck! And it's not plug and play, eitherUsing easy vinyl converter, the supplied method, it took a lot of messing about in the computer sound settings, before I got rid of dreadful distortion. The initial sound was rather like listening to two radios at once, from the far end of a long drainpipe! You must follow the setting-up procedure laid out in the documents that come with the deck, to get anything at all out of the speakers. Then you get the audio distortion. Using Windows 7, I finally sorted it by going into (start button) - control panel - sounds - recording - microphone properties - then turn the level right down to 6. Now you should have decent reproduction - but - the tracking weight of the tone-arm is so light that if you have ripply-edged LP's (and who hasn't) the stylus skips and jumps like crazy, because there is so much 'sticktion' in the bearings. I solved that by sticking about half a gramme of lead onto the flat at the stylus end of the tone-arm. This leaves just one final problem - the turntable speed isn't quite stable. It doesn't have wow or flutter, that I noticed, but every now and then, randomly, the speed surges momentarily, so if you have a 'crooner' on the platter, it sounds as though someone has stuck a pin in their bum! Maybe I've got a 'monday morning' deck, and yours might work perfectly!
Bought this a couple of days ago and try as I might, I cannot get the software to run on Windows 8 without many problems such as "blank screens", "lack of recording" & "fails to transfer to iTunes".
Just bought the ION Profile Pro, excellent value for money, easy to use, very good quality sound and works readily with Windows 7. Looking forward to hours of fun and pleasure converting my extensive Vinyl collection to digital.
The turntable was well packaged no danger of getting damaged. Very easy to set up and use.
Very pleased with the ION Profile Pro. I found it easy to set up and use. Just remember and manually split the tracks when recording live albums, or you end up with one long track.
