The portable 'suitcase' record player has grown up, with the Ion iPTUSB portable vinyl-archiving turntable offering both the looks and the option to convert your vinyl to MP3 easily.
It's an update, but still packs in the retro looks and of course, is primed for your old school vinyl. But it's also a modern piece of kit, powered by mains or battery, you can take the turntable anywhere, using the USB connector to hook up to a PC or Mac to transfer that vinyl to MP3 and/or your digital player. Or simply use it to play your vinyl, either through larger speakers or via the small built-in speaker.
See over the page for the turntable in 'suitcase' mode and if you like what you see, the Ion iPTUSB is available at Urban Outfitters for £90, complete with cartridge and stylus, 45RPM adapter, cables, slipmat and software for converting your files.
