Every new digital audio player that comes out gets slicker than the previous one, but there is still something to say about the beauty of the old analogue machines of yore. The Gakken Premium Gramophone Retro mechanical record player is one such an example of a piece of practically ancient equipment that you’ll want to use nowadays, even in a world of touchscreen PMPs and smartphones. The record player is nearly an exact replica of the gramophones that were used in the early 20th century and it comes complete with a bamboo needle and a hand-cranked mechanical action. The player also supports all record sizes and even lets you record music. You can pick up the Gakken Premium Gramophone Retro mechanical record player at Japan Trend Shop for $143.
