Goldmund's Eidos 20 BD Blu-ray player costs $17k

At first glance, we didn't really believe anyone would create a Blu-ray player with a $16,900 sticker. Then we saw it was produced by Goldmund. Continuing its long heritage of offering up grossly overpriced wares for those with more money than sense, the firm is now trumpeting a Blu-ray player more pricey than most low-end automobiles -- and we're not even sure it's Profile 2.0. What we do know is that the Eidos 20 BD includes an AC-Curator power supply circuit, the outfit's own Magnetic Damper for lowering read errors and a chassis only a mother could love. To each his / her own, we guess.
