Other Notes: "I’ve heard several direct drive turntables but the HW-40 Anniversary surpasses them all. It’s simply glorious. It’s the best direct drive design that I’ve ever encountered. It’s also quite possibly the best turntable I’ve ever heard. Firstly, because it offers authority with a light hand. It’s not a bully. It offers maturity and restraint. There is no sense of wanting to dominate the music here. This turntable is not ‘flash’, in terms of showing off or exhibiting itself. It never tries to impress.
Because of that one factor, I know that the VPI HW-40 Anniversary is a piece of true high-end hi-fi equipment. Only quality high-end hi-fi refuses to try. It wants you to come to it. To examine the music in detail and to rediscover the wonders within each song. If you don’t want to listen, really listen, then the HW-40 Anniversary doesn’t mind and won’t bother you. But if you pay attention and allow yourself to be drawn into this VPI design then it will reward you with an abundance of sonic treasures. The HW-40 Anniversary is an instant classic. In my eyes it has already attained legendary status." - The Audiophile Man
