British Hi-Fi company
I recall a work of art. Not on canvas, more a mobile sculpture. It was a turntable, back in the day when there was little choice of real high-fidelity music reproduction. It wasn't just any turntable, it was designed to work with the acoustic properties of the vinyl disks it was playing. The whole design ethic was to use materials in such a way to extract the best sound and make the equipment beautiful into the bargain.
The Pink Triangle Partnership company was founded in London, UK in 1980, manufacturing hi-fi audiophile turntables. They were responsible for many innovations, including an inverted sapphire main bearing and acrylic turntable platters. The company are famed for their products' excellent sound reproduction, innovative design and good looks.
Surprisingly, in the age of the CD and DVD, they still make a player for vinyl records (you do remember LPs, I'm sure). The Tarantula has received rave reviews in Europe and America, and supports their line of more conventional modern hifi.
Update: Sadly, the company appears to have ceased trading, in the face of a falling vinyl market.
