A new turntable accessory- your search for Valhalla is over!

I keep saying I'm no longer shocked by some of the ridiculous prices popping up in the audio world every day. With this new accessory, I take that back. What looks very much like a record clamp or weight is instead called a record STABILIZER! It's intended purpose is to control resonance and improve playback performance. And all this for the bargain price of 6,700 euros! The manufacturing process is described in some detail and sounds like something akin to fabrication of the James Webb Telescope (ok, slight exaggeration). However there are enough words like argon ions, Polyoxymethylene, and particle accelerator presumably meant to impress one with the amazing technical innovations built into this new product.

Of course, the reviewer was highly impressed with this product though he never really says it is worth the lofty price. The last line of the review however gave me a chuckle: " the T2S represents the highest level of achievement from an accessory, one where return on investment should be measured in emotions rather than dollars." What an interesting comment and a philosophy guaranteed to send many of us to the poorhouse!
