New to me HW-19 Mk3

Postby MCM_Fan » Sat Nov 21, 2020 6:42 pm

I drove 4.5 hours round trip to pick up this beautiful HW-19 Mk3 from the original owner. It has an AudioQuest PT-6 tonearm and a Dynavector 20x2L installed. It looks like new and sounds great! This is my first VPI turntable. I heard the newer ones are supposed to be pretty good too.

Very nice! Almost all VPI owners have a soft spot for the HW19.

Thanks! It's my first VPI and I'm loving it. The Dynavector cartridge also sounds amazing.

It really is. I'm very grateful to the original owner for taking such great care of it. You'd never now it's almost 25 years old. It looks brand new.
