This page is biased towards Thorens turntables, however a lot of other fun links are here for audiophile type gear. Can you say $150,000.00 for a certain high end turntable? Can you say $50,000.00 for a vacuum tube amplifier? These links are for you.
There is some overlap with the Vacuum Tube link page because a lot of sites that deal with turntables (especially vendors) also deal with vacuum tube audio gear. Sites that are essentially only vacuum tube gear are on the Vacuum Tube links page. Other vendors that cover a more broad product offering are on this page.
