Cool Turntables! No, That's Not An Oxymoron.
For those of you old enough to remember vinyl records (the big, round black disks made of plastic - the prehistoric CD) probably recall there was a big market for high end, esoteric turntables. The turntables are the platter on which the record sits, and which typically holds the pick up arm. I am feeling old just describing this! Anyway, they are still making cool looking - and I'm sure hideously expensive - turntables for those audiophiles who just can't go digital. I actually used to own one that looked very similar to the Thorens model in the article below (it was NOT a Thorens, I must emphasize - that probably costs more than my car).
