Okay - 'fess up! Most of us have a stash of vinyl housed in an out-of-the-way place where nostalgia reigns, not wanting to damage these relics from our lives as young adults. If you have been waiting for the day when these treasures can be safely played without the prospect of damaging the precious vinyl, you are in luck. ELP has released a turntable that plays standard analog discs optically, and performs to a high audio standard. Although this technology was first announced in the early 1980s it was overshadowed by the rise of CDs; now at a more affordable price, this turntable will give audiophiles renewed listening pleasure.
