To be perfectly honest, I'm more of a home theater enthusiast than an audiophile. But the latest NBS universal phono preamplifier really caught my attention with its extravagant finishing.

You see, this is one of the rare hi-fi components cast out of solid copper right down to the knobs for a combined weight of 66 pounds. While I'm not exactly convinced by the $30,000 price tag, this is what NBS has to say about the unique choice of material: "The solid copper chassis provides exceptional shielding and grounding. A generous grounding post is provided adjacent to the inputs. Not only that, the copper enclosure is also beautiful to look at."

Still, the universal power compatibility is a welcome feature for vinyl heads around the world to pair this 6.35mm-armored kit with their turntables.
