I don't care what you trendy kids say, it is still hip to use vinyl. And this damned expensive gadget makes the passion for vinyl a little easier and more modern, to boot. The ELP Laser Turntable is essentially that. Rather than dealing with the hassle of placing the needle on the record, just pop the baby in and let the lasers do all of the work for you. Unfortunately these cost a whopping $15,000. It sure it expensive to be vintage.
