ION Audio Air LP tooth Streaming Vinyl Record Player Turntable – Great bit of kit

Able to plug in to our bose speaker and blue tooth to a speaker in another room all at the same time if you want to.

Great sound when paired with some nice speakers.

Problems connecting to amazon echo dot. . I bought this on recent prime day for a £60 – bargain – but, i couldn’t get it to connect to any bluetooth devices initially. I was on the verge of returning this but after 2 calls to uk support (the 1st of which they told me it was faulty and 2 return it). I’ve managed to get this to work. Top tip here is if that you are connecting to a speaker / device that has others stored in it’s memory – wipe the memory and connect only this (to start with). The turntable uses up a lot of memory on amazon echo or other speakers and so you will need to do this or it won’t work. I was connecting to an echo dot (in turn connected to powered speakers) and had to wipe previous connections to phones, headphones etc. The bt name to look for when searching for the turntable is ‘csr audio dongle’ – hardly straightforward and a sign of how much effort / money has been put into this product. Once set up the sound is tinny yes, i’m sure a more expensive turntable would provide a ‘richer’ sound – but this has maintained the life of my old dads record collection and my dodgy 80’s & 90’s 7′ singles and my 5 year old now has the wonder of vinyl johnny morris stories and crackly records to dance to – so – job done. Here are the specifications for the ION Audio Air LP tooth Streaming Vinyl Record Player Turntable:

Decent quality for a decent price but flaky bluetooth. Quality is fine, it looks quite nice but the bluetooth function is pretty poor. It often doesn’t connect and when it does, it often cuts out. It could be just the particular bluetooth speaker i’m using (a sony one) and overall i think you get what you paid for, so i can’t really complain too much. I just use a cable to connect to the speaker now.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Vinyl revisited.
  • great quality sounds great
  • Fantastic with AirPods too!

Arm a bit plastic-y but i guess most are now. I was spoilt with the balanced steel s arm of yesteryear. Sound not fantastic, but to be fair it will depend on the speakers/amp you connect to. Invest in tidy speakers and i’m sure it’ll sound great – that’ll be our next step.

So easy to install and sounds brilliant played through the soundbar.

It’s ‘normal’ size turntable for those of us of a certain age it’s great to hear the crackle of a vinyl album. If i had to find a fault it would that you have to lift the needle arm on and off the record. It does however have a lever to lift the arm up. Recording to your pc is easy with the enclosed software and cables. And it is totally portable just requiring power. For us oldies to be able to play our long lost and lonely vinyl that has been stuck in the garage or the attic for many years. I’m going to guess that as soon as ion realise how cheap it is they will increase the price. Only time will tell how durable it is.

Very pleased with this item. Connects to bluetooth soundbar easily nb bluetooth 4. Sound is good, look is very good and modern. Old lps sound as good as new. Software is ok but a bit limited for transferring to pc but i mainly bought it for playing old records and it does that well.

Great sound when paired with some nice speakers.

Great quality sounds great, connects easy.

Nicest design i could find and is perfect for everyday vinyl listening – only downside is you have to use bluetooth to play via speakers and it needs to be in close range. I’d go for the one with built in speakers if i had the choice again but it doesnt look as nice.

Slow to connect, but good sound quality. It takes an age to connect to my bose bluetooth speaker, i have to reset it several times to get it to connect (don;t have similar problems connecting other devices to the speaker, so can only assume it’s the record player. In fact i got so frustrated that i ended up buying an amp and speakers, and now it works well. The sound quality is good- although i needed to connect it to the aux input on the amp, not the phono input.

      1. Great reintroduction to playing vinyl. Really good price for wire free reproduction and surprisingly good quality, depending on the speakers.

    Wonderful starter turntable. Looks good, works well, good enough sound for price and has some nice features. We’ve bought one as a newbie to vinyl (well, since we were kids anyway) and it works a treat. Some people have complained about the tone arm but i did play with other brands that were much more expensive and the tone arm was comparable. Love the soft drop of the tone arm onto the record. I have mine connected by a lead to the soundbar which works very well – not attempted the bluetooth yet but if you read some of the other reviews – the issue sounds to be easily sorted if it’s not pairing correctly. I will be getting a designated speaker for this and it won’t be used on any other device which should prevent any issues. Overall, for just under £100, you’ll be getting a good sound experience, a piece of kit that will look great into your living room and a way to enjoy the more organic sound of music.
