Turntable Can Be Mounted On a Wall For a Completely New Listening Experience.

Cumberland, R.I. (Jan. 6, 2011) – ION (, a leading manufacturer of consumer electronics and entertainment technology, announces VERTICAL VINYL, a unique, wall-mountable turntable. ION will exhibit this new turntable at the 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), booth #12638, in Las Vegas, Nevada from January 6 – 9.

The ION VERTICAL VINYL wall-mountable turntable offers a new spin on the act of playing records. VERTICAL VINYL is a great way to save surface-space in a living room, office or dorm room with its wall-mount design. A fun, new way to experience your records, VERTICAL VINYL will also impress friends and guests by defying gravity when playing records sideways.

Available in multiple colors, VERTICAL VINYL looks as good as it sounds. VERTICAL VINYL has an integrated speaker with volume control and battery power to avoid any wires scaling up the wall for a clean, modern appearance. VERTICAL VINYL plays any record by choosing between 33 or 45 RPM platter speeds and also accepts a 7” adaptor. Records are fastened to the platter with an easy-to-use locking device, which ensures safe and secure use.

“VERTICAL VINYL lets you hear your music from another angle, literally,” said Gregg Stein, Managing Director, ION. “ION has been making turntables for years, but we feel that this may be our most fun creation yet.”
