Another audio transfer device
ION has been on hand at CES and has rolled out some interesting stuff at the show. One of the oddest products that the company has is a small audio conversion device that is called Vinyl Forever. You can see in the photo how small the device is and it is styled to look like a little turntable.
The device connects to turntables and tape decks using normal RCA cables. The other side connects to a computer using a USB port. That allows the transfer of analog recordings to the computer as digital files. The device comes with the RCA inputs and has a line selector and volume control onboard.
It comes with software to optimize the music. “Lots of people have vinyl and cassette collections that they’d like to preserve but they’ve put off converting them to digital music files,” said Fred Galpern, Brand Manager, ION Audio. “VINYL FOREVER makes it incredibly simple to get started. Just connect and click and your whole music library can be converted easily.” You can pick one up this year sometime for $34.99.
