It also weighs over 100 pounds.

If an audiophile turntable made out of wood isn’t sturdy enough for you, then this cast iron model from US design house Fern & Roby might be more suited to your tastes.

The 70-pound base supports a 35-pound bronze platter, built to reduce resonance and cradle the platter with a little vibration as possible. It’s not all made of heavy metal though – the turntable also features a Rega 303 tone arm and real-time digital speed control.

The catch is that it’s $6,500 – enough to buy every model on our list of the eight best budget turntables that won’t ruin your records. [via The Vinyl Factory]

This cast-iron and bronze turntable will set you back $6,500
