(… wanna put one-a these in my stocking?)

Saw this over at The English Guy’s What’s Hot blog and I started drooling over just how cool it is… yeh, a physiological reaction to a too-cool technotoy:

Ion iTTUSB Turntable with USB Record

“…the world’s first USB turntable allowing you to convert your old vinyl collection directly to CD or MP3 with the included recording software. (NO SPECIAL DRIVERS NEEDED) The ION USB turntable includes Audacity software for Mac/PC for recording as well as a trial of Bias Soundsoap 2 for cleaning and restoring vinyl. This turntable also has line level output for connecting to any home stereo with CD or auxiliary (AUX) inputs. This product is compatible with any software that supports USB audio input sound cards.”

I’ve been good. No! Really I have! Santa! Hey, you: fat guy! Where you going?
