It’s a steam-driven turn-table. I wonder how good it is. You see, I have an audiophile speaker business and I’m always into the high-end stuff. I’d like to hook it up to my tube-amp and my Brodmann Acoustics Vienna Classic VC7 speakers ($26,000/pair).
Built by a New Zealand based steampunk artist called Asciimation, the turntable features a a small steam engine he built from spare bits he had in his garage, The platter speed is controlled by a servo which uses a coil to read six magnets under the platter, with everything controlled by an Anduino processor.
Somebody buy it for me and I’ll hook it up to my stuff and let you know.
