I know that there are already turntables out there with USB ports, and other ways to transfer your vinyl to digital, but this actually has an iPod dock. Just drop your iPod on there and don’t worry about wires at all. Of course, it apparently only works with a 5th generation iPod or 2nd generation iPod Nano. Pretty stupid, maybe just getting one with the USB would be better. So you can see that below.
A vinyl collector’s dream come true, a Turntable with Universal iPod Dock converts your vinyl records into digital, portable music. This USB turntable records directly to a fifth-generation iPod, a second generation iPod Nano, or to your home computer. A great gift for any music lover – including yourself. Built-in sync dock lets you transfer recordings to other iPod models through your computer. Recording software is included for archiving record to other MP3 players or CDs. Supports 33-1/3, 45, and 78 RPM. Professional features clean up tracks for the best possible sound. Adjustable anti-skate control for increased stereo balancing. Software analyzes your vinyl and automatically retrieves album, artist and song information (PC only). Connect to any home stereo with an AUX input for everyday use as a great turntable. Mac and PC compatible. iPod not included. Requires Windows XP or Vista to run on a PC; OS X 10.3.9 or higher to run on a Mac. Read more technical specifications.
I know that there are vinyl purists out there who will say that these turntable are a sacrilege; that if you claim to be an audiophile, you should never use the digital format. Although I think that there are less of the absolute purists than ever. The fact is, I can’t carry my album with me, whether on trips, or to a friends house. Also, when I am working, I don’t like to be bothered, (which is why I don’t use Twitter) so I end up using my iTunes for my MP3’s rather than getting up every so often to change sides or albums. Not that I don’t like to do that, but not when I’m working. (Yes, I work from home, haha suckers).

Also I have included the Stanton T.90. I haven’t actually used the Ion turntables, so I can’t guarantee their quality. However, Stanton is pretty good, so you would be safe with it, although it is a lot more money.
