Kronos Demos New $21,500 Sparta Turntable

Though the Sparta AXPONA demo unit was still a prototype, a company spokesperson claimed the unit was "a few weeks away" from going into full production. The $21,500 'table was demoed with the company's $6500 "Black Beauty" carbon fiber tubed arm. Analogplanet hopes to snag one for review later this year.

The 'table uses two, counter-rotating platters to cancel out "suspension-rocking".
