We've seen turntables designed especially for digitising your crusty old vinyl for years, but ION's LP 2 Flash deck one-ups all that I've seen by recording straight to an SD card or USB thumb drive for quick transferring to a computer or recording straight to your PMP. And if you get tired of being so retro, it'll reverse the flow and play any MP3s you have on your cards or disks, outputting to your stereo via standard RCA jacks. It's a UK import for now, at a price of £130 (US$228).
