Bergmann Tangential Arm Turntables - Magne
There is no question in my mind, this is THE turntable, the one I would trade my wine collection for, if I had one worth that sort of money...
It is a beautiful (Danish...) object, timelessly elegant and minimalist, and the design principles behind it are flawless.
For me, it is a modern version of Pierre Clement's latest product with a hint of Braun aesthetic, the inspiration behind all John Ive designs at Apple.
At 12000$, it is certainly more affordable than even a second hand Clement contraption, if you can find one ! Not quite a bargain, but still accessible. and this is their entry level!
