Metallica release limited edition Pro-Ject Ninja Star turntable record player

"When you rock vinyl on this deck, nothing else matters."

Metallica have teamed up with Pro-Ject Audio to bring us a sleek, top-of-the-line turntable.

The Metallica x Pro-Ject Ninja Star turntable record player features the Metallica Ninja Star design by James Hetfield, and has a bunch of sexy features.

The turntable is made with a heavy zero-resonance designed glass platter, damped and height adjustable metal feet, a Pro-Ject MM cartridge for precise and dynamic sound, and a pre-adjusted Pick it S2 C cartridge & SME headshell. 

She was handmade in Europe, and features a unique Metallica design -  the s-shaped tonearm is fitted with a detachable SME headshell to allow quick cartridge changes. Have a watch of the unboxing video up top. 

But like any collectors item, it comes at a cost. You can snag one for US $1,599 which is roughly $2700 NZD, before shipping. 

If you’re looking to add a bit of flare to your audio system, and you have a cheeky $2700 to spare, you can buy yourself the turntable here
