The rising yen isn’t hurting every Japanese gadget manufacturer.
Japan’s ELP Corp. just announced that it’s dropping the price of its Laser Turntable, an outrageous device that I’ve mentioned here before.
“These revolutionary capabilities for vinyl playback are now available for under $10,000,” the company said today.
Its new price: $9,900.
Even bigger price cuts were made in the higher-end models that also play 78s. They now start at $13,000, down from $17,000.
