    I was wondering if anyone knew what brand,

    or has any info on the turntable that was

    in 'Lara Croft-Tomb Raider'.

    Its only shown for a brief second when she is doing her

    'bungie ballet' in her house.

    Just curious...

    It was the Clear Audio Master Reference table, a very nice piece of gear!

    Max - Thanks for the help! [​IMG]
    Iain - Side note: In reading some of the history of Michell Engineering, they mentioned that one of their turntables was featured in Alex's bedroom in 'A Clockwork Orange' .
    Thanks,
    Sean

    I saw that particular turn table in a little shop on the island of Okinawa. It had a barricade around it with signs in Japanese and English saying "standback" "admire from afar" and "do not touch!" It was a real beauty.

    Wow. I could make one from scratch for less.

    Neat, though.
