Elsewhere though, the chrome shininess of German turntablism shone through, in brands like Transrotor, Acoustic Solid and Clearaudio. Transrotor may be new to many audiophiles in North America, but it has been around for quite some time in Germany. It has currently more than 20 turntables in its product line, and they all look pretty.
The look of the Transrotor line either replicates the look of Clearaudio's or vice versa. Rumor has it that Clearaudio replicates the JR Transrotor line. Performance and preference aside, they are all beautiful turntables to look at, and great sounding turntable to listen to. However, the price is not cheap on these toys. If I remember correctly, this is a $140,000+ Euro turntable from Transrotor.
