$7,960 Gold-Plated CD Player a Total Waste of Money

Oh boy. This stupid CD player combines the overpriced marketing BS that audiophiles love with bling for the sake of bling to make one seriously overpriced piece of antiquated technology.

The Vamp NOS CD player is covered in gold, which supposedly "renders an extra sense of polish in high frequencies." OK. It also just plays the CD out in the open air, exposing the laser to dust and all sorts of things like that. But hey, gold! That means it must be good! And only $7,960? Where do I sign?
