$77,000 CD transport is one expensive way to spin your discs

If you need to burn through $77,000 before the year ends for tax purposes or something, you might consider the new Kalista Ultimate SE CD transport from Metronome Technologie of France.

We've seen plenty of wild high-end audio gear in the past, but this one takes things to a whole new level of craziness. Remember, this is only a CD transport, you need to add a separate digital to analog converter to get something you can connect to your amplifier. If you don't already have one, Metronome will be happy to add in one of their C2A models for about $20,000.

All the various parts of the Kalista Ultimate SE weigh in at around 181 pounds, so I would also recommend a strong floor if you're considering this.
