    To eliminate vibration in the Goldmund Eidos Reference Blue (www.goldmund.com), the manufacturer encased the 66-pound Blu-ray disc player in brass and aluminum and attached it to four spring-loaded legs. The legs rest atop an even weightier 2-foot-tall stand, which further prevents interference. The $141,000 system is also available as an upgrade (for $67,500) that allows owners of its predecessor, the Eidos Reference, to view Blu-ray discs. Goldmund plans to build only 50 of the players.
