For Vinyl Fetishists
McIntosh MT5 Precision Turntable

There's nothing retro about the technology behind the MT5 Precision Turntable from legendary hi-fi audio company McIntosh. First, you'll notice the magnetically suspended, glowing, aqua-blue platter, which is driven by a stable and silent belt-drive motor. It spins thanks to advanced magnetic bearings—and looks damn cool. Bringing the music alive is a tonearm that won't skate or hop; it glides on records with minimal friction. Perhaps the best part: It's easy to install. Just unbox it, connect it to your amplifier, and prepare to be blown away.
