Considering the 10K price point for this venture, VPI's own TTs seem more compelling.

I totally agree, but if money was no object, I'd probably go the ML route. It's a great looking table.

This may better explain one reason why VPI no longer produces the HRX, as it would be considered a price/performance competitor to the ML. Better to be immediately paid for every one of these manufactured. Business is Business!
