Swarovski bus runs over your LPs

Self-running player for $487

Red Ferret

It's apparently not enough for Swarovski to ruin good taste . According to Red Ferret, it wants to play a part in trashing vinyl records as well.

Swarovski has taken its crystal-making juggernaut to this self-running record player, aptly named the "Vinyl Killer," complete with its own needle, speaker and amplifier. But even though its VW bus design would seem perfect for playing your old LPs, we wouldn't recommend using it on your Stones collection. (Get it? Stones?)

Besides, if you're willing to shell out $487 for this thing, you might want to keep it on display somewhere. Or, in our opinion, hidden away in the closet.
