While the return of Technics SL-1200 may have cast a shadow across all other turntable news at CES last week, the prize for the loudest on show definitely goes to Ion. And we’re not talking about volume.
The Photon boasts a garish array of colourful lights beneath its platter that shine through the clear plinth and respond to the beat of the music, potentially a bit like integrating a Windows Media Player visual equaliser into your deck.
Even more sophisticated, the lighted base on the Spectra comes with a remote control allowing you to mix the colours to reflect the feel of the music like a true bedroom VJ. [via Yahoo]
