Vinyl Meets iPod
Remember all those vinyl records in your basement gathering dust? Finally, there’s an easy way to transfer all those musical memories. LP DOCK has an innovative USB turntable that allows you to convert old vinyl LPs directly to your iTunes or iPod. What’s more, it easily archives records to a computer for transfer to CD or MP3 player and cleans up noisy pops and clicks inherent on some old vinyl recordings. How cool is that?
