The iLP Digital Conversion Turntable

Ripping a CD to MP3 is one thing.  Ripping vinyl is another.  It can be complicated and very, very time-consuming.  Unless, of course, you invest in one of these.

It’s called the iLP.  Put a record on the platter, dock your iPod/iPhone/iPad and it convert your warm-sounding analog records into convenient portable digital files.  And for $100, this looks like a fantastic Christmas gift.

    …and it looks like Christmas may be a little early. Hey, I've been good 🙂 This looks so flippin' cool. Good looking out Alan, I will share this with tons of folks.

    Shame on you Alan.

    This is wrong on so many levels. The vinyl will sound better played on a proper turn table and an mp3 will sound better if it's been converted from the master on a equipment costing more than a steak dinner. Using the cheapest possible gadget to sample the analog sound from a crummy turn table will guarantee the crummiest sounding song possible.

    I'll just stick to doing it this way instead. Maybe if it synced then an external hard drive (or to a Cloud-based storage that enabled streaming playback or a desktop/laptop, but just to an iDevice, nah).
