When you're trying to get away with charging an exorbitant amount of money for a piece of antiquated technology like a turntable, you've got to make it look unique. That's probably the most important thing you can do to convince people that your turntable is worth the price of a luxury car.
That's what DaVinciAudio Labs has done, with their crazy-looking AAS Gabriel turntable. With three separate elements designed to reduce any noise or vibration, it looks like it should be in a laboratory or a museum. And the price? Well, for you cheapskates out there the regular version goes for $35,400. If that's not quite enough for you, there's also a luxury version with 24-karat gold accents, and that one runs a solid $41,250. Totally worth it.
