ION's Max LP Puts a New Spin on Traditional Turntables

ION's newest turntable is the ideal fusion of vintage design and modern performance thanks to its digital conversion capabilities, built-in speakers, and integrated headphone jack.

Cumberland, RI - December 3, 2014 - ION Audio, a leader in lifestyle consumer electronics, today announces Max LP, an all-in-one turntable with an integrated suspension speaker system for vinyl playback and conversion.


Max LP features a revolutionary speaker suspension system design that allows its built-in stereo speakers to play with no distracting audio feedback. Vinyl listeners new and old can enjoy records in any listening environment, minus cumbersome speaker wires.

For the passionate listeners with large vinyl collections, Max LP is the ideal solution for record conversion and archiving, since its built-in speakers allow you to monitor the progress of digital conversion and transfer in real time. The turntable supports all 33 1/3, 45, and 78 RPM records, and connects to any Mac or PC directly using the included USB cable. ION's exclusive EZ Vinyl/Tape Converter software also makes conversion a snap, not only guiding users through the conversion process with step-by-step instructions, but also automatically separating tracks.

"The physical nature of vinyl makes designing an all-in-one turntable very different from designing a portable CD or MP3 player," said Wendy Fortin, ION Product Manager. "Turntable makers have wrestled with designing speakers built-in to turntable models for years and feedback has always been a major problem. Until now, that is. Max LP's innovative speaker suspension system eliminates feedback and offers vinyl listeners an all-in-one solution for digital conversion and audio playback."

In addition to its integrated playback capabilities, Max LP can also be paired with a separate stereo system via its RCA outputs, and the included headphone output can also be used for private listening sessions, without the need for a separate dedicated headphone amp. If you're looking to digitize music from other sources such as a CD or cassette, you can connect and convert via Max LP's 1/8-inch auxiliary input.

Max LP is $129.99 MSRP and is available now at national retailers and on IONAudio.com and comes in a natural wood finish complete with a dust cover. For more information on ION, please visit www.ionaudio.com or follow on Facebook, YouTube, or Twitter.
