Why is it that we started to shy away from playing records? It’s many reasons of course, but listening to your favorite song and having it interrupted by scratches and distortion is a major annoyance. While most have moved to a digital way of storing music, there are those of us who enjoy having a collection of vinyls laying around.
If you’re really passionate about keeping your records, but wish you could enjoy it without all the extra sound-fuzz, you might want the World’s Only Counterbalanced Turntable. It has three platforms, silicone/Viton O-rings, twin plinths made of a material that doesn’t transfer sound, and a machined aluminum platter. While the top spins clockwise, the bottom spins counterclockwise to cancel anything that may hinder your tunes. While this $28,000 turntable has the works, you will need to provide your own tonearm. This is the price of beautiful sound…well, from a record anyway.
