Nice looking table.

One thing that interests me is why they decided to go with the MDF sandwich over the acrylic sandwich plinth on the higher end models. At this price point...

I like Mark Levinson gear. They have had a unique place in the audio market from their conception, but I don't think I would be inclined to purchase a Mark Levinson turntable any quicker than I would purchase a VPI integrated amplifier. That's just me. .

It appears that the only thing on the table not "made" by VPI is the power controller

This is the TT that VPI hinted at on FB that I mentioned in the Avenger thread. I really like the looks of this one, though at $10k I won't be making a move from my classic 2. As mentioned in other threads, I'm happy to see new turntables being released.

At $10k I'd probably go ahead and do the VPI Avenger!
