iLP works with Apple's Lightning to 30-pin Adapter and comes with a free app to transfer vinyl records easily to iPad, iPhone, and iPod
Cumberland, R.I. (January 8, 2013) – ION, a leader in consumer audio and entertainment technology, announces iLP, a digital conversion turntable for iPad, iPhone, and iPod, which includes a free app for converting vinyl records into digital music. ION will exhibit iLP in four colors, red, white, blue, and natural, at Central Hall Booth 11604 at the 2013 CES show in Las Vegas from January 8-11.
The USB conversion turntable, a concept pioneered and expanded upon by ION, has given vinyl enthusiasts all over the world an easy way to update and enjoy their vinyl library. Now, with iLP, vinyl lovers have the easiest way to transfer music directly from their records to iPad, iPhone, or iPod.

With iLP's built-in dock and included EZ Vinyl and Tape Converter app the conversion process is simpler than ever. The app even automatically separates the tracks, and for iOS devices with Apple's new Lightning Connecter, iLP works with Apple's Lightning to 30-pin Adapter (sold separately).

iLP is the perfect centerpiece for a home music system. It has a contemporary low-profile design, making it ideal for those who want a turntable that looks as good as it sounds. Connection to a home stereo system is easy using iLP's standard RCA outputs. Music can be transferred to iPad, iPhone, or iPod while you listen. For those who want to store music on a laptop or desktop computer, iLP can do that, too, by simply connecting it to a Mac or PC with the included USB cable.

At CES, ION will also unveil Pure LP, a USB conversion turntable identical to iLP, but without the iOS dock. Pure LP will also be available in a range of vibrant colors. "We're proud to be at the front of the vinyl revolution," said Wendy Fortin, ION Product Manager. "Our goal with our conversion turntables has always been to help our customers embrace the past and the future and to empower them with the flexibility to enjoy their music in a variety of formats."
