This, here, is a turntable "re-imagined": almost every single element of it.

The whole shebang costs $1,000/pound ... really, no reason to discuss MSRP but it has a 3-digit weight.
I am betting that it comes with RCAs. If at that price; it comes with an arm at all.
Chickens are smarter, maybe this is the egg!
One of the thing that has always disappointed me about most turnables is how many must be designed by people who are not well conversant with the dynamics of vibration and how the transduction works.
Loads of static statements are put forward by people selling what is a dynamic transducer and loads of schoolboy errors being made in the design.
There are 6 degrees of freedom. It would be ideal to isolate the record surface from all of them but persistently a huge chassis with springs very far apart is used which is capable of adequate isolation in 1 or 2 maybe 3 of them definitely way out too high a frequency of rocking isolation.
The original Edgar Villchur design was done well understanding the basic physics of how a record player works.
It was built to the sort of budget people spent at the time and was way more effective at isolating the playing transducer movement from the environment than anything that came before.
There were several record players using the same concept subsequently with Ariston, Linn and Pink Triangle selling quite a few.
All these massive decks with widely spaced suspension towers, including my Goldmund Reference unfortunately, will not be able to isolate rocking modes down to the lowest audio frequencies - however reassuringly expensive and astutely marketed they are
They may look impressive and work reasonably well but their isolation can not be ideal.
Sorry, nothing to do with phono stages but it is infuriating how expensive some items with fundamentally flawed conceptual design are.
