ION Audio Vinyl Motion Air tooth-Enabled Ultra-Portable Three Speed : Nostalgia got a little techy

Much easier than firing up the hi-fi system. Have not used the connection to pc yet but all other features are good, including the blue-tooth connection. As others have mentioned it is a bit of nostalgia with some modern technology thrown in.

‘does what it says on the tin’ – and sounds like it. But actually, as a bringer of a little nostalgia, i think it represents very good value for money. If i fall in love with my ‘lp’s all over again, maybe i’ll go a little upmarket, but till then, i’m happy.

Really good, bluetooth connection works well although can be used with in built, small but acceptable speakers if required.

Excellent when paired via bluetooth.

  • Nostalgia can be what it used to be
  • Ok for evenings playing old vinyl
  • Decent player for a budget

I bought it for my partner for a valentines gift. He has now plugged it into his speakers and loves the sound. He definately had trouble with our flip bluetooth speaker (it still hasn’t managed to connect) but it does want to connect to the tv. ) love that it’s portable, that it came with a charge, and there has been no jumping or sliding on the vinyls. The sound through the internal speakers is sufficient but plugging in speakers made all the difference. Still i’m thinking summer in the park. The quality of the box and external fittings looks of a fair quality. Overall happy as it felt like a minefield picking one.

Quick delivery product as describe. Works well added bonus got blue tooth.

Bought for parents – ok quality and does the job for listening in the house. I’m sure there are better if you want to spend more money but this does the trick for a budget.

Spends ages trying to decide on player – replacing a poor cheap one – this has amazing sound with and without bluetooth- absolutely love it and loving listening to ella fitzgerald – buy it.

Both the ones we purchased are working fine, and the ability to bluetooth output to a remote speaker is very useful. Steve riches, northampton, uk.

Great little piece of kitspeakers are ok but bluetooth speakers is the way to go.

Good sound blue toothed to portable speaker. Bought for son to take to uni.

Bought this for my husband for christmas he has a lot of 60&70 lps which have not been played for many years the sound quality is good evan were there is a small scratch on the record it is light and portable it’s now his best friend very good choose worth paying a bit more as there is a wide price range for the same looking items.

An attractive retro suitcase look with this compact turntable design. I was initially a little disappointed with the sound quality from the internal speakers. But put it through some decent bluetooth speakers, and it sounds great. I love the ability to listen to my vinyl collection in any room of the house. It even reaches into the garden. The software disc to digitise your records was missing and i will need to chase that up, or look online. There are several similar products on the market some at half the price, but the reviews for these were not so good. At just under a hundred pounds, i think this is good value for money, if it lasts.

Excellent product and service.

Excellant value for money, for £99. The quality of the player is good i have paired it with a cambridge audio g2 bluetooth wireless speaker & it works ok using bluetooth, but for much better sound quality connect it using a phono to jack plug option.

This was delivered very quickly, which was a relief because malcolm, my hamster, really is getting awfully fat. It works perfectly at 33 rpm and he trots along nicely; the arm is perfect for attaching his fishing-line leash. I tried at 45 and 78 rpm – total disaster. Malcolm’s leash broke and the centrifugal force flung him across the living room whereupon he landed in uncle bevan’s fish supper, cushioning his fall. It will be 33 rpm for fat malcolm from now on, and i’m hoping he will be lean and buff in no time. Haven’t tried playing any cds on this yet.

Positive:- fantastic product. Good combination of features. Connects over bluetooth (takes a bit of time to pair first, so be patient) to any speakers or sound system and has it’s own loadspeakers (of course, as they are tiny, not the best quality, but usable on travels)- is really small to transport and lightweight- has an integrated rechargeable battery. Perfect for travel or for grazy people listening to vinyl on the beach, on a mountain top- overall quality is fine. Sound is good, features are nice. – finally the best part, this little inexpensive player got me back into vinyl. Now every second hand or vinyl shop i see anywhere, i go in, search and often find treasures. – uses a standard needle that can easily be ordered over amazon from several suppliersnegative:- n/a (of course, better hifi players exist on this earth, but not portable, not in this price range, so in its product range this is excellent).

Perfect for me with a stylish case and perfect functioning with my bluetooth earphones.

Prefer the sound when hooked up to my bluetooth speaker but it took a while to pair up.

I spent hours, if not days researching portable turntables before finally deciding upon this one. It is a present for my daughter who is off to uni and wanted something she could take with her. Firstly, this is not suitable for an audiophile, you cannot expect to get the same quality sound out of something like this compared with a proper turntable with external speakers and the full set up. The sound is fine, we haven’t had any problems with the records skipping etc, the build quality is what you would expect for the price, it arrived on time, it’s neat, easy to transport and this particular model comes with bluetooth connection so you can use external speakers if you wish – probably useful if it was to be used at a party etc. I wouldn’t want to play collectible vinyl on something like this but then that’s not what this was bought for.

Very happy with this record player i bought for my son. Chargeable battery makes portability very handy and bluetooth also useful – it looks cool as well.

Son is very happy that he can now play my vinyl records.

One thought on “ION Audio Vinyl Motion Air tooth-Enabled Ultra-Portable Three Speed : Nostalgia got a little techy

  1. This review is from : ION Audio Vinyl Motion Air Bluetooth-Enabled Ultra-Portable Three Speed (33 1/3, 45 and 78 RPM) Briefcase Style Turntable with Built-In Stereo Speakers, Rechargeable Battery and USB Conversion, Black

    A real shame about this turntable. Out of the box, it’s nice, robust, ready charged, good to go. Yes, the sound from the onboard speakers is a bit boxy, but that’s to be expected in a unit of this size. The sound through headphones is great. And it paired to my bluetooth very quickly. And bluetooth is the problem, because that’s really how i want to use a modern turntable, through my high-spec soundbar. This was the first of two ion audio vinyl motion airs i’ve had from amazon over the last couple of days. On this machine, there was what i can describe as like a bow-wave of hiss from the soundbar when the stylus dropped into the groove, and this persisted during playing. If you ignored the hiss, the playback sound over the bluetooth connection was decidedly harsh. When the stylus was lifted, the hiss persisted for a couple of seconds then died away.
