The future of vinyl

turntableo.jpg

If you’ve watched Pink Floyd and thought, “Which one’s Pink?” then you don’t love music enough to spend £13k on this beautiful EAT Forte turntable.

It features mind-boggling tech to ensure your vinyl won’t rumble like the giant boulder in Raiders Of The Lost Ark.

The standalone, low-torque twin motor prevents vibrations from reaching the platter, which is powered by a diamond-cut sting belt providing both 33 and 45rpm. That platter is suspended on a magnetically-attached ceramic ball — meaning that despite its 20kg weight, it spins freely. Oh, and hi-fi guru Osamu Ikeda dampened the 12in chrome tone arm to minimise vibration.

Pink would’ve loved it.

£12,900; absolutesounds.com
