Turntable prices. Is my mind going?

Stereophiles Recommended components offerings at $300,000 Plus!  And weights of many hundreds of pounds? Is quality now by the pound? Audiphools exist- just like Saquatch.


While I'm not going to buy a $300,000 turntable (or a $1000 turntable for that matter) I am not going to call somone an fool for buying something that I've never heard.  

That thinking could apply to a lot of threads here, often bashing equipment that isn't nearly as expensive.


I would draw a parallel to automobiles: a $2,500 car will get you most places you need to go, but there are cars for sale at $25,000, $100,000, $250,000, $2,500,000, all the way up to $25,000,000.  Where do you draw the line?  It’s different for each person.

If I could afford a 2 million $$ car I wouldn't be looking in these forums for advice.
