1. The first product Motorola started
to develop was a record player for automobiles. At that time
the most well-known player on the market was the Victrola so
they called themselves Motorola.
2. From The Book of Useless Information.
The TechDAS Air Force Zero turntable weighs
750 pounds and costs $450,000. It features air suspension for
both the turntable and the platter(s) bearing, and new old stock
Papst syncronous motors originally used for the Revox tape recorder
capstans. There is an optional 50 pound titanium top platter
for $50,000. Michael Fremer concludes For those who can
afford such an extravagance, I say, why not? And while youre
at it, feed the hungry. --Stereophile Sep 2021
