Witches' Brew: Tech Talk: Portable Turntable

Tech Talk: Portable Turntable

As I sit here and watch the VH1 Hip-Hop Honors recognize the legend that is Def Jam, I'm longing for the days of yesteryear when DJs actually cut and scratched records instead of plugging up their Mac computers.

Well, there's a way to throwback to the 80s. Enter: the Ion USB Portable Turntable. It's a blend of retro and 2009 technology. It hooks up to your computer with a USB port, so you can turn your vinyl records (if you still have some) into MP3s. Light bulb moment: convert all your old music collecting dust in the basement to portable music!

The red version retails for $140 at Urban Outfitters but there are more options on the Ion website.
