I'm particularly impressed with the pure copper wiring and the plastic controller.

I'm sure YAWANKER will love it!

Does not his personally designed record support (on his personally designed TT that's so much better than anything else) feature a series of "pins" contacting the record label thereby raising the record off the platter by a few mm. Why didn't he simply just throw the platter away? I bet he's kicking himself now!

This made a degree if sense as a portable https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fcse8veYxVU

Or this from Sony https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6qQwiaZdP0k

And of course this is the ultimate hi-fi https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jwZE6hWsPMg

Do any of these jokes cost £1700 as that Elite Audio joke does - Nope!
