We only play vintage LPs at Abodeon and have an enormous collection, so this hit home with us. The portable Duo Deck is just being introduced by Ion Audio. Powered by 4 AA batteries or USB, the turntable and built-in cassette player plays and converts both LPs and cassettes to MP3 music files. Just connect the deck to a Mac or PC with the USB cable and your ready to transfer. There’s even a built-in speaker, and 1/8″ headphone output that can be used for listening or connecting it to a speaker system.
Ion is also introducing an even more compact LP 2 GO which converts LPs only. Think of them as the iPod of turntables – you can take them anywhere. – Terri
