Today’s turntables are designed to take your dusty record collection into the digital age. Numark’s newest incarnation of the old favorite adds a spot for your iPod—so it can laugh in the face of your aging technology.
The TTi turntable not only allows you to rock out to your old Aerosmith albums, but it also throws in a little something extra via a Universal Dock for the iPod. Other features include a USB audio interface, a metal platter and 10 percent pitch control, which allows you to adjust playback speeds. As is, the unit supports 33 and 45 RPM playback; 78 is possible, via included software.
Speaking of which, there’s also software that can record the music to your iTunes library, in case you want to multitask. It can also take the pops and other noises out, as well as any other sentimental feelings you might be having.
The TTi also comes with EZ Vinyl Converter software, for recording directly to a PC or Mac. It also features Gracenote MusicID technology, which means you won’t have to manually input every album, artist and track title.
Numark’s TTi turntable is available now for $449.
