Vinyl isn't Dead.

NEAT-O. New record player from Japan. H/T: Toms Hardware.

Japan-based ELP Corporation has released the LT-1LRC laser turntable which uses not one, not two, but five lasers to read the pits and grooves on records. Record collectors shouldn't have to worry about any damage because the lasers harmlessly bounce off the pits and grooves of the record - something that can't be said for the traditional record needle.

Three models are offered for LPs, 45 RPM and 78 RPM records with prices starting at $15,000

BTW, This is post #900 for this blog.
