Three guesses to identify this gadget

Hint: It's not a kitchen appliance.

Hint: It's not a kitchen appliance. Another hint: It's not military equipment. And it's not both.

If you guessed turntable, you're either a true audio aficionado or a cheater. We thought it was some kind of high-tech meat slicer.

Modestly dubbed the "Work of Art" by Basis Audio, the player in question boasts a list of technical specs as long as long as the title track of "Layla" by Derek and the Dominoes. Among its many attributes is an anti-vibrational technology called a "Resonance Annihilator," which makes us think that perhaps we weren't too far off in our rendering-plant guess to begin with.

Not since the "Transrotor Artus" have we seen a vinyl player as elaborately designed (or disguised). BornRich says Basis systems aren't intended "to make a hole in your pocket," which is a good thing--the Transrotor, by contrast, goes for $150,000.
