Retro tech: Acoustic Signature Ascona turntable

Retro tech: Acoustic Signature Ascona turntable

If you're going to listen to an LP, do it in style. Preferably on something that's worth more than your car.

Introducing Acoustic Signature's new 15th anniversary Ascona turntable from the legendary German engineering team at Acoustic-Signature.

Weighing in at a whopping 80KG and featuring a 50mm thick solid aluminium platter with a 350mm diameter, the Ascona also has solid brass silencer inserts to reduce audio resonance. Chuck in some ultra-low noise and low friction self-lubricating bronze inserts and you have yourself a turntable that will be spinning records perfectly, long after you've passed on.

On the downside, it costs US$34,000. Sure you could just stick to your iPod, or you can take out a second mortgage and treat your ears and eyes to some class. Just remember to get a sound system to go along with it, lest you end up with a very expensive potter's wheel.
