What product (not necessarily a turntable) are you interested in seeing featured next at the VPI House? If you cant make it to the house, what product/brand would you want to learn more about?

I'd love to hear one or more entirely "Made In NJ" systems: VPI turntables, Merrill or VAS electronics, VAS cartridges. I'm stumped on loudspeakers, though. Who makes loudspeakers in NJ?

There is Mike Kalelis, I dont remember his company name off the top my head but he has some amazspeakers. My dad has a pair in red at his home.

If we expand to Brooklyn there is always DeVore.

His company is Arion Audio. It began in Mountainside in 2004 but moved to Charlotte, NC in 2013 according to his website.

Not New Jersey, but I vote for Von Schweikert speakers. Since Albert Von Schweikert started in New York I'll say it's close enough. :)

YES! Arion Audio! We have those at the house, although Harry grabbed the woofers :|

Van Schweiker would be interesting!

We have been talking to YG Acoustics and might have a pair of their speakers over soon. 8-)

If you go YG, get the Hailey 2.2’s. IMO they are the best bang for the (in this case, considerable!) buck currently available from YG.

I've heard that about those YGs, I believe those are the models we were talking to them about getting over to the house. Great minds think alike.

We will be having a lot of Modwright equipment over for February after the Tampa show, I'm REALLY looking forward to that!
