$125,000 record player runs on Mars Rover motor

Behold the Clearaudio Statement. If you listen carefully you can hear the sighs of a thousand audiophiles at the sight of this incredibly excessive record player. The $125,000, 770-pound unit -- based around the same motor that they used in the Mars Rover -- turns a platter to such exacting specifications that, well, we're not really sure why it needs to do that. But suffice it to say that there isn't a lot of vibration or unevenness up in here. Neither does common sense reign. Be sure to follow the link for more audiophile porn.
