Also, there's the exacting level of craftsmanship that's gone into creating such an object. As the listing puts it: "The daunting task required for a company to develop, test and produce a direct-drive turntable possessing a similar level of comprehensive engineering in today's marketplace would be, in a word, cost-prohibitive."

It describes the turntable as "in essence, the company's crown jewel professional studio direct-drive model."
