Goldmund's $300k Turntable

I couldn't resist posting this photo, not of a product, but of photos of a product, just to get Mikey Fremer all riled up about the fact that the Continuum Caliburn turntable, for which he forked out mucho dinero, is no longer the Big Dog of LP playback.

The Goldmund Reference II celebrates 25 years since the introduction of the original Reference. Just five will be made each year, according to Goldmund's Michel Reverchon when I spoke with him at the company's Bellagio suite, and 2007's production has already been spoken for. And yes, it will cost $300,000.

The Reference II, which, like its illustrious ancestor, includes a high-mass plinth, will accommodate three conventional tonearms. However, Goldmund is working on an optical pickup/arm, which will incorporate a high-performance A/D converter at the headshell. This will not be available for some time, probably not until 2008.

Whether one is rich or poor, one only has one life to live. Music is a profound experience, and it isn't always possible to attend live performances.

For those who have such money available to them, and to whom the finest in sound quality makes a difference, purchasing such a turntable may not be unreasonable. In any case, this sets a goal of quality towards which makers of much less expensive turntables can aspire and approach.
