avid acutus reference turntable reminds me that people do actually make money

This year I've been slowly getting into music production and have been looking for a turntable and thought I'd just go ahead and start out with the Avid Acutus Reference Turntable. It's only $24,000. That's pretty reasonable, right? I was thinking I'd just Danger Mouse it and blow all my student loan cash on it. Who needs education when you got sick beats? The Avid website gives an overview of the turntable:
"Vibration caused by the stylus during playback is transmitted to the subchassis directly through the bearing and not absorbed into the platter. This is achieved using a unique matting material and clamping system. External vibrations are isolated by a unique suspension system, now conveniently adjustable from above. A purpose designed power supply coupled to a unique hand made motor, 10 times more powerful than normally used, drive a massive 10Kg platter. Recently improvements to the suspension, now allows adjustments from above, making set-up easier.

Also the out-board power supply has a cosmetic facelift with universal approval.
Stunningly finished in Polished Chrome or special order plated Gold, this product is the natural choice of equipment for those who demand the best."
Hey, I have no idea what that means, but it sounds bad ass. And that's what matters.
