Like new VPI HR-X with the 12 inch Fatboy (gimbaled) arm. Must be one of the last ones made. It was unpacked and has never moved from its current position. It has lived in a very clean environment, non-smoking and protected from "the maids". I'm the original owner and it was purchased through an authorized dealer. The Hyperion cartridge is not included nor are the Synergistic phono cables. It does come with the ADS speed controller, the record ring, and weight. Plus everything else that came with it originally including all the packing and boxes. The TT is in perfect working and visual condition. The TT is 1.5 years old. Arm is 6 mos. old. All belts were recently replaced. Stereophile class A.

From the website: The HR-X is known to reviewers and manufacturers around the world for it's natural reproduction of scale and sweep, which are two of the things that make us feel like we are listening to live music. With world class detail, low noise, pace, and timing, the HR-X will bring the concert hall into your home. Best of all, it does this without fiddling, tweaking, or constant resetting. The HR-X is a statement among belt drive turntables! The drive system and the periphery clamp result in wow, flutter, and rumble that are all below measurability providing world class sound.

Triple-laminated chassis (Acrylic-Aluminum-Acrylic) is heavy, rigid, and critically damped. Each layer is machined separately and then assembled before being combined with the corner assemblies to produce a uniformly aligned system. A periphery ring clamp centered by the platter, not the record, provides vacuum-like hold-down without the problems inherent in a vacuum system. Stainless-steel HR-X center weight. 40-pound separate machined drive system uses two low-powered 24-pole 300RPM AC synchronous motors driving a 12-pound flywheel. The drive unit is machined from a solid block of aluminum, its accuracy assured by using only one piece, giving the lowest-possible wow and flutter from a belt drive. Flywheel spins at 300RPM and has 62 times the inertia of a 25-pound platter. The combination of flywheel drive system, inverted bearing, and accuracy of machining leads to extremely low levels of wow, flutter, rumble, and FM distortion.
