Who says a turntable needs to be round?? Just cuz the vinyl is, doesn't mean a turntable has to conform and the pure rebellious nature of this instrument of amplitudinous torture made me drop my c-net article. Well almost, I broke my screen a few weeks ago and that shit aint cheap so check out what it is that rocks harder than any turntable I've ever laid eyes on in this article from c-net BTW..it made me look up the word PLINTH so I can get into heady tech discussions about who's PLINTH is better. flippin' bad ass!!
