Cons: add a con
"Setup was easy except when it came to attaching and balancing the tonearm. I was unable to balance it without skipping. I didn't even get to recording. This product doesn't seem to reach the usual level of Costco quality I have come to expect."

Doesn't Work

Model Number: ION TTUSB10
"I purchased this, and felt it would be a great addition to my ION Tape player, The turn table has No Sound, When you try to record, the level gauge is not moving, the needle cartridge doesn't fit right, I have changed settings, Does Not Work, Re- Downloaded Software, Still didn't work, Re-Booted my System, Still doesnm't work, Deleted all files of the DL and re-did everything, Still no sound, Did all the trouble shooting checks, Still does not work. Tape player works great, LP's are a No Go. I wasted over three hours with no positive out come"

record blasts from the past, great technology

Model Number: TTUSB10
"If you purchased 45rpm records in the days of yesteryear, then this machine will convert them to current storage technology. If you played the 45s on your record player or your car record player, like I did, then the original unmastered, not remastered tunes should bring tears to your eyes and joy to your ears. This machine really works great and captures the original oldies but goodies from the days of yesteryear. Let the good times roll."

GOOD QUALITY

Pros: easy basic setup
Cons: complicated advanced setup duplication of songs.
Model Number: ION USB Profile
"Basic setup is simple, however if you want to adjust record volume or use the click and pop reduction it is complicated to set up. In my case hoplessly complicated.
The basic setup is easy. The only issues were a tendancy to record several songs on a side twice. This lengthens the transfer time. It transfers in real time, then takes 2 to 3 times as long to transfer into ITUNES.

"I have now finished 126 of my old albums which is about half of what I have.Getting ready to retire and want my music on CD's or mp3 to travel. This takes a long time to do...After one side you have to take the same amount of time to convert it to i tunes then play the other side and convert that side then burn. It takes about an hour per album. I will have to say it is well worth it for me!!"

Easy to Use, Does What I Wanted

"Last year we purchased a different USB turntable from Costco, but had to return it as it quit working after we had just managed to digitize a few albums. Even when it did work, it was difficult to use. THIS ONE is sooooo much better. I have done about 6 albums so far and will be doing many more. I love the ease of the software. I haven't tried using the audacity yet, but the software that I am using is supersimple."
