Pretty cool - the VPI Avenger Reference and JMW 12 3DR tonearm are one of Anthony H. Cordesman's 2018 Golden Ear Award picks in the September, 2018 TAS!

Congrats to all at VPI!

It’s especially cool because, if I recall correctly, a number of years ago Harry and TAS got into a thing, and TAS responded by prohibiting its staff from reviewing or recommending VPI products. Good for Cordesman. Rich

I think Mat mentioned that a TAS writer had completed a review of an Avenger but hadn't returned it yet...Some confusion over whether VPI would get a formal review from them since they aren't going to pay for advertisement, IIRC.

Even if the review never sees the light of day, at least we know it's considered a Golden Ear 2018 product.

The October 2018 issue of The Absolute Sound has Anthony Cordesman's review of the Avenger Reference starting on page 42. It's very complimentary in an understated way, which I prefer to an over-the-top flowery review. Congrats to the VPI team on some well deserved recognition from a well respected reviewer!

The Avenger Reference ended strong this year with a review from TAS and Fremer, both of them rocking 8-)

Congrats Mat that's great news, but where is Fremer's review? I don't see it on AnalogPlanet or Stereophile.

Fremer's hasn't hit digital yet only in paper in Stereophile, should be in digital soon. :D

It’s on Stereophile’s December 2018 digital edition. Just read the very positive review yesterday.
