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.


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

I'm bemused by the fact that keyboard cowboys who have never heard a product know so much about it.  No one has to buy a better turntable.  If you don't want to spend $300,000 don't! 

Turntables, unlike cars, or boats are not mass produced.  Everything on them is expensive.  If you can make one as good, but for less money, put yourself in the upper class building one and then finding someone dumb enough to buy it.


If I had a price no object system I would definitely have a listen to it. Just because you don’t have the money doesn’t mean someone who does is a fool. From their point of view perhaps you are the fool living in ignorance and poverty.
