High End 2011

No, the idea was not to torment you, but I couldn’t resist a shot of this, one of the world’s most coveted vintage turntables -- outside the US at least, with NOS models exceeding $10,000.

Maybe if enough hardcore vinylphiles beg him to bring it back. . . . After all, he already makes the tonearm, cartridge and a killer phono stage.
