ION Audio



ION designs innovative products to simplify life and energize entertainment. ION was created in 2003 out of the desire to bridge the gap between the classic and the cutting-edge, between the timeless and the revolutionary. The USB turntable, invented by ION, gives vinyl enthusiasts the power to bring their music forward even as the music brings them back. Here at CES, ION is showing off All-Star Dance, a lighted and wireless dance mat for iPad. It promises to do for aspiring dancers what ION’s most recent innovation for iPad, All-Star Guitar, has done for guitarists: empower them with an inspired, unique, and fun way to interact with their music. Best of all, there are no messy cables or complicated setup. All-Star Dance connects wirelessly via Bluetooth technology for hours of dancing fun with many great dance games, as well as a library of over 500 ION Arcade compatible games. ION is also displaying Job Rocker and Party Rocker, two new all-in-one speakers systems with Bluetooth wireless technology built in. The five models that make up the best-selling Block Rocker Series have become standard additions to backyard parties, game-day tailgating, and even city nightlife at sports bars and restaurants. The company is also showing off Call Center, a tabletop Bluetooth speaker system that turns virtually any mobile phone into a high-quality conference phone. With society’s ever-increasing dependency on smartphones for everything from watching movies and playing games, to instant business meetings, email, and trading stocks, ION’s Call Center seeks to be the solution to a chronic smartphone problem: frustrating speakerphone conversations. ION is also showing iLP, a digital conversion turntable for iPad, iPhone, and iPod, which includes a free app for converting vinyl records into digital music. The USB conversion turntable, a concept pioneered and expanded upon by ION, has given vinyl enthusiasts all over the world an easy way to update and enjoy their vinyl library. Now, with iLP, vinyl lovers have the easiest way to transfer music directly from their records to iPad, iPhone, or iPod.
