It's a bit late to pick up an Angelis Labor 'Gabriel' turntable for tonight's New Year's Eve festivities, but any well-heeled DJ would be proud to spin on this $64,000 piece of Italian craftsmanship.

The Angelis Labor 'Gabriel' magnetic suspension turntable is comprised of bronze and aluminum. According to Luxist, it's made in an Italian Ferrari parts manufacturing factory in Modena, Italy.

Implications - Even though music has gone digital, there are those who prefer the tradition of using turntables. Many bands continue to release records for fans who prefer other mediums to play their favorite songs on. With retro styles catching on quickly, companies have a large market of individuals who stay old-school and are sentimental about the past.
