The LP12 is cool.

LP12
One of the 10 coolest things in the world this week according to GQ. Personally I just think it's one of the best things to own and to use ever!

So according to GQ the best bit is that it is modular and can be upgraded. Whilst I agree that that is a significant benefit, surely the best thing about it is it's audio performance. :D

Well TBH it's not difficult to find the LP12 being the coolest thing of that bunch of efforts shown -
most of which look complete pants :g-giggle:

With a lifetime exception to the 1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing! [albeit in naff colours with Rupert bear trouser seat covers]

I've always adored that car, ever since watching one of the best films ever; “Ascenseur pour l’échafaud” (1958)
