LASER TURNTABLES? Sounds futuristic and all kinds of sexy! The first laser turntable was designed and engineered at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) in Pittsburgh.  The project was abandoned in the early 90's because CD's took over the music market and left the record industry in the dust, literally...

The project was later taken over by a Japanese company BUT the newest models cost between $5,000-$10,000!  Why pay all that money for one of these spacey contraptions? The audio quality is immaculate because five lasers read and produce the sound as opposed to one stylus. Warped records can be played without sub-sonic interference or tempo distortion, your records won't wear out no matter how many times you play them and even the worst scratches are tracked over without all that hissing or skipping! As soon as you hit the lottery I suggest picking up one of these bad boys!
