I am reminded of a purchase I made back in the early 70's. It was a set of
the 16 inch discs in the series, Masterworks from France. I paid a radio
station $25 for the 300 or so programs and for $5. they included a Gates
turntable. As I recall, the turntable was heavier than all of the
discs...and, as noted, the rumble was unbelievable.
