Design

The natural wood finish helps to achieve the natural look and it will blend perfectly with any room. The construction is very strong which enhances the performance level and helps to assure the properly balanced output sound. It has feet which make it stand still. It has a small volume knob which is easy to reach. The straight tonearm guarantees the highest precision level. The belt drive assures the stable playback with speed consistency. The ports are easy to access – there is a special section that has a USB and the standard RCA ports. The weight of this model is 5.9 pounds, while the dimensions are 3.4x16x13.7 inches.

Setup

The setup process is straightforward and you will have zero problems even if it is the first turntable you use. All the ports are labeled – you can use either a USB port to use it with a PC (the manufacturer provides you with the audio recording software) or a common RCA port. The ports are built properly and they produce no noise. Using this model is easy – it has a small volume knob and even the built-in speakers can be quite loud. The perfect grip is guaranteed by a plastic platter.

Features

The ION Audio Archive LP specs prove it to be a reliable complete solution – it uses the moving magnet cartridge type. The included diamond-tipped stylus can be replaced. This model supports three-speed modes – 33.3, 45 and 78 RPM (however, 78 RPM requires using the special stylus which is sold separately). It also has the “autostop” feature. The built-in speakers’ power is 1.5 W per channel. The tracking force is 5 grams nominal.

Conclusion

The ION Audio Archive LP is the model for people who look for a good solution that looks nice with the clear output sound. This model is versatile due to various ports and it also allows you to record the music using the provided converter software (it is precise – you get not noise). The built-in speakers may be not too powerful but they are enough to provide you with stunning sound. Therefore, it has everything you need to enjoy your favorite music.
