My friend’s new HR-X

My friend’s new HR-X

Postby 930turbo » Sun Sep 13, 2020 9:08 pm

Hi guys ,

My friend sold his old HR-X that he had since 2012 . This is the HR-X in w/c we mounted a FatBoy 12” gimbal tonearm and it trounced his other turntable the Kronos Pro w/ the upgraded power supply w/ a Kuzma 4 point tonearm and a Koetsu White Coral Stone w/ Diamond Cantilever .
He was able to get a VPI HR-X w/ the Magnetic Drive Platter upgrade , w/ the Avenger Feet and a 12” FatBoy Gimbal tonearm. Cartridge was still the Lyra Etna that was once mounted to his old HR-X.
After nearly 3 months of waiting because of the pandemic we were able to assemble it yesterday , and to make a long story short it massacred the Kronos again . Again my hats off to the VPI Team
Here are some pictures.

Stay safe guys ,

Awesome, another mag drive HRX member! Did your friend opt for the Avenger dual motor-drive or are they all out of the HRX dual motor?

Thanks for the nice words guys .

Brf ( 997C4S) the HR-X came w/ the dual motor drive of the Avenger . I was surprised as well that it did not come w/ the dual motor flywheel assembly of the HR-X/ TNT 6
