Ion Duo Deck record player and cassette deck

Ultra

If you thought converting your old vinyl and cassettes to MP3 was a pain, it might be easier than you think with the Ion Duo Deck.


At its heart is an easy way to play the formats you might have stashed away in a cupboard, with power via batteries, mains and USB and a built-in speaker, along with a 45 adaptor (it also plays LPs too). It's incredibly small too, so easy to transport around with you.

But if you want those old tunes on your modern-day computer, the Duo Deck is good for that too. Plug it into a computer using the USB cable provided and let the self-installing software convert your records and tapes to MP3.

It sells for £59.99. If you don't want the cassette functionality. Firebox also has the LP 2 Go, which is cheaper at £49.99.
