Reading the question (What do you think the 40th will be?) Sounds like they have made a decision what it is going to be already .... I do like the look of brass ,,that would be nice ,,

A year ago Harry said this (the unipivot but will use a gimbal yoke like the Scout JR. Sorry this has taken so long but I am working on three projects at once, one being the 40th Anniversary Direct Drive which will actually use the Fusion arm.

We have a few ideas locked in and I forgot about that video... so that might be giving away some of the goods. We have narrowed it down to two options... if I'm going to be direct one option would be a bit more pricey and a true limited run. The other option when left in idol hands with the right control would be a touch more affordable and a better long term option as a long term new product. :P

I promise I'll post all of the epic napkin like drawings my dad and I have been working on when everything is all out there. Our official Anniversary starts in December so we plan to have it fully done and one active display at Capital Audiofest in November :)

The next riddle may be in the same message..."long" mentioned twice. New tonearm?

I'd say the clue for the second option is the "...when left in idol (sic) hands...". Idler drive?

You can share them with us Mat! Just clearly set expectations that it’s only a concept and everything may change. The concept may benefit from the forum’s feedback.
