Listening to your vinyl on a speaker made from your vinyl collection!?!

Is this the ultimate in hi-fi or what???

    Yeah I don't know about that
    Oh, Listen here mister. We got no way of understandin' this world. But we got as much sense of this bird flyin in the sky. Now there is a lot that bird don't know, but it don't change the fact that the world is happening to him all the same. What I am tryin to say is, is that the course of your life, well its changing, and you don't even see it- Forest Bondurant

    Being a DIY guy, I can't bring myself to spend this much money on a novelty. Now, I would make something similar for fun. Pick up a D-class amp with bluetooth for about $30 and a Pyle Blue Label coaxial (like the one you can see in Halo's pic) for $16. Then, make a horn from an old album by forming it over a metal bowl in the oven. Could be a cool project. I just think listening would get old quick.

    some resonance damping would be required, I'd think.
    Maybe 180g, or heavier, pressings would be better.

    I'd also think about adding supertweeters made from 7" 45s, you know?

    Why not just use the shaped 45s as whizzer cones? :)

    I think it's cool from an artistic standpoint, if nothing else a conversation piece..

    I would bet one could make their own though..
