Today I am giving a thumbs-up to the Ion Audio Max LP 3-Speed Belt Drive Wooden Turntable with Built-In Speakers.
Iain recently purchased this turntable, because, in the entire 15 years he's known me, I've had a record collection but no record player. It's been really nice to be able to listen to my vinyl again, and there's a neat record store in town with cheap used records, so it's been fun to do some browsing for weird and wonderful records, too.
He did a bunch of research and decided on this model, which wasn't super fancy but also wasn't bottom-basement, and it's turned out great. I love the look of it, and the sound is fantastic. Highly recommended if you're in the market for a turntable.
Anyway! Give us your thumbs-up or thumbs-down in comments!
Just to be abundantly clear, I am not affiliated in any way with ION Audio, nor am I receiving any form of payment for recommending them. It's just a thing I've personally found super useful and am happy to recommend.
