Expert review

The Ion Max LP is a reasonably priced record player that comes with a USB connection, allowing you to convert your vinyl collection into a digital format through your computer. It also features built-in stereo speakers and a headphone output so you can listen to it without needing to connect to anything else. With these useful looking features, the Ion Max LP record player looks like it could be a bargain, but how good is its crucial attribute - sound quality?
