Nice move and congratulations!

IMHO, that was smart move to act fast, as IMHO, the majority of all HW-40 will be pre-sold and no longer available prior to full production being realized.

The launch and everything worked out better than expected! It was tough to keep the lid on all of this and it was even tougher prepping everything. We will have our first public demo at CAF in two weeks and at some dealer events. Also we will have listening sessions here in Jersey :D

The VTA dial had no numbers for the first one because we ran out of time to make it for the launch. Should have them on there in time for CAF.

The software question goes a bit more into Mike and Harry's realm but we will have the ability available for all DD owners to update their tables as the technology continues to improve. 8-)

Is the ADS needed, or recommended for the HW-40? Would an SDS work, too?

The simple answer is no. Although the DD motor is AC driven , speed stability is servo-controlled via an active feedback loop that directly measures and controls the speed. I believe that the HW-40 samples 2500 x per revolution. I would imagine that there is some form of power filtration/regeneration going on internally.
