ELP Laser turntable http://www.stereoti...om/turn030300.shtml
The reverse of this idea, kind of. A turntable which plays records by reading them optically - only $13,500
And thanks [bristolz] for a picture of a turntable which has the same arm as mine. [hippo, Oct 17 2004, last modified Aug 01 2007]

It would look really cool playing one of these [krelnik, Oct 17 2004]

       Especially if it were all geegawed out like some of the really high-end audiophile turntables.

       [hippo] the turntable just above the one you mention in your link is $20,500. Goodness.
bristolz, Nov 02 2002
  

       I assume the "tone arm" would just be for show and the actual laser would be underneath, for various mechanical and reliability reasons. If so, this player would look really cool playing a CD burned onto Verbatim's new novelty media. (See link).

       Just *try* to read the label as it spins at 200-500 RPM! (recovering from blur-induced prototype headache)

       Is it possible to read one at 33 RPM?
krelnik, Feb 04 2003
  

       um...let me check...this one says... Possibly...If...You...Tilt...Your... Head...At...The...Right...Time...

       Nice turntable, [hippo], but for that price you should at least be able to listen to King Crimson records as well...

       Have a little strobe light to illuminate the label, making it appear stationary (or rotate slowly).

       I was only thinking, the other day, that the sound effect of a soothing piece of music ending with the sound of a needle scratching across the grooves to signify the end of someones day-dream would be of no meaning to the younger generation.   

       This device would need to have that sound effect, and then the world could rest easier.

       I want that ELP - I've recently had to transfer a variety of 33's, 78's and unidentified shellacs and acetates to digital. This would have helped a lot. So would [Ling]'s mod.

       [Ling] - see link
hippo, Aug 02 2007
  

       Yes, that one, too!
