Admit it: You’ve still got LPs, and maybe even some 45s, that you haven’t turned into MP3 files for your iPod or Zune. After all, it’s quite a chore to turn your CDs into digital music files. And LPs? That’s a whole other level of complexity.
Fortunately, the Ion Audio LP 2 CD audio player eases the way toward transforming your much-loved LP collection into tunes for your digital music player. But going from LP to CD to MP3 is one step too many.
It’s now possible to go straight from vinyl to digital, which should make it easy for even the staunchest of vinyl supporters to enjoy the best of both worlds.
