Anyone have an Ion USB Turntable? My Numark is mucking up lately and I’m thinking about buying one…comments?

    Yeah I’ve got one, and I’m really pleased with it.

    The only problem I have as when recording with Amadeus Pro, which starts giving off a strange crackling noise after a while. I thought this was due to static, but closing a reopening the app seems to stop it.

    As for the sound quality, I think it’s good, and it’s ultra-simple to use.

    Plus, the turntable’s not very dear…

    I just bought a Gem Sound DJ-USB from SIx Star DJ in LA (they have amazing deals on their web sites each week). It cost $99 from them, and everywheere else was $150 and up. It is a belt drive, but it is a heavy duty belt. Excellent quiet motor, and comes with Bias SoundSoap as well as the usual Audacity. Unlike the Numark you can remove the RCA cables if you wish. I like it a lot. I thought about the more expensive hardcore DJ tables that were USB adaptable, like the Stanton T.90 and the higher end NuMark –both direct drive, but couldn’t justify the price–$225 to over $300 for what I was going to use it for–ripping LPs to mp3 and CD. I love mine and did a lot of research before I bought it. Feel free to email me off your blog if you have any questions. I have checked the “receive follow-up comments” box. You have a nice blog too! Thanks for your hard work.

    I noticed a frequency hum through the USB of the device, and ended up [barely] using it with a set of RCAs and another audio I/O for the computer. FYI
