Teac Esoteric is celebrating 20 years of semi-high end stuff with the VRDS X-05, a Super Audio CD player that boasts all sorts of sexiness—well, the sort of sexiness that only comes with CD players. For example:

Its high-precision loading mechanism gives you, says Teac, an altogether quieter, smoother CD experience, while the aluminum turntable reduces vibration to a minimum. Output is two-channel, this is its backside...


... and this is what you'll have to pay when the X-05 comes out in the US, probably in January — $4,350. [Teac Japan via Akihabara News]
