The Atmo Sfera Platterless Turntable ($1010) was designed by a team of Italian Engineers who wanted to take the smooth, warm sound of vinyl to the next level.To start, they took a classic design and revolutionized it by concentrating on only the vital components and by using the highest-quality materials.The focus of their design was to reduce energy stored into the turntable base and platter. Energy that can impact the sound of the audio by causing buzzes, noises, and muddiness.They did this by creating a tiny, light platter and combining it with a low-torque motor. This leaves the record almost floating in air and generating almost no energy back to the record.The integrated design includes everything you need. You don't need to buy a phono pre-amp or an amplifier. Everything is included.Additional features include a carbon fiber, static balanced tonearm, two speeds (33/45), a small, low torque bipolar motor, driven by a synthesized, very pure sinusoidal wave, and Bluetooth stereo connectivity with an embedded RIAA preamplifier.If you're interested, the Atmo Sfera Platterless Turntable is available now from the companies Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign.

Most audiophiles know the more rigid the speaker case, the less resonance you get, leading to a neutral sound that replicates the audio as the artist intended. The Master & Dynamic MA770 ($3600/pr) takes this concept all the way with a case that's built from a hand finished concrete composite. But you need more than a 35 lb case made out of concrete for great sound. You need great drivers.

Additional features include a 100 watt class d amplifier, a magnetically attached stainless steel grille, built-in 4.1 Bluetooth connectivity, and auxiliary analog and optical inputs.
