Ion Vertical Turntable

The Ion Vertical Turntable from Hammacher Schlemmer is for people who still have vinyl records but don’t have a lot of room.  Although it can be used on a flat surface, the Ion Vertical Turntable is designed to hang on the wall to save space.   A locking mechanism holds your albums firmly in place while they are played with the ruby-tipped stylus.  The two-speed belt drive plays 33-1/3 albums or 45 rpm singles, and 5W speakers produce clear sound.  The record player (to use an old term) turns off when the disk finishes playing to save battery power.  The device requires 4 AA batteries, and your first set is included.  The Ion Vertical Turntable is $69.95.

    This is going to either gouge those precious grooves or accentuate any issues that bent records are going to have.
