Has anyone seen the VPI Prime Signature Rosewood up close and personal ?

Does it sound as good as it looks ? I am looking to upgrade from my Clearaudio Concept, and man, i think that Rosewood might be the one.

Anyone else upgrade from a Concept to a Prime Signature and can to offer an opinion ? thanks,

I have a black Prime Signature on order. I am hoping for a mid December delivery. I will be pairing it with an Ortofon Cadenza Bronze. It will be a nice step up from my Scout 1.1

Very nice. Am a big fan of the Cadenza line of cartridges from Ortofon. They do everything so well.
