Laser turntable plays records like CDs

this is really cool (Via Boing Boing.)

The ELP laser turntable reads LPs with lasers — the manufacturer claims that the lasers can read ‘virgin’ parts of the grooves that haven’t been touched by needles and produce a better sound, and that the five laser read-head lets you skip forward and back across or within tracks as you would with a CD.

I don’t own any LPs, but this looks like a great way to preserve old LPs by avoiding wear every time they’re played.
