These turntables remind us of those stone wheels on the cars they drove in the Flintstones. Why? Take a closer look at the photo. The base is made of "non-resonating stone."

Combined with the super-thick synthetic platters on top of them, the stone plinths and supports are designed to reduce vibration and improve contact with the vinyl, according to Audio Junkies. Like the Flintmobile they're lovingly handmade, by Italy's Thesis Audio, in three models. (The full stone chassis pictured here is available only on the top-of-the-line Amalthea.) Foot brakes not included.
