When it comes to the very finest device in audio luxury, this MBL gold-plated CD player is a strong contender.

At a cool $27,000, the MBL gold-plated CD player represents a pretty spectacular combination of opulent gaudiness and superb audio quality and playback. Meant to exude an outward appearance worthy of its serious interior hardware, the CD player's exterior features 24-carat hard gold plating on its switches and buttons, and a sleek and futuristic design that would seem more at home on a souped-up luxury vehicle than for an audio device. Nevertheless, the finished product is a seriously fancy piece of audio hardware.
