This is the story of Ken Fritz, who spent decades and $1 million on his custom home stereo.

His custom-built floating turntable alone weighs 1,500 pounds and uses three separate arms for alternative audio tone. The Washington Post quoted someone who heard the stereo as calling it “very scary and very realistic.”

But the Post story also covers heavy personal costs extracted by the project. A 2021 documentary from his son offers plenty of detail about the stereo.
