    Looks great.

    Personally, I would go the VPI direct drive option.

    Re: VPI Titan has landed

    Very interested to hear your thoughts on how this compares with Kronos Pro. I think Myles Astor has the direct drive version of this (Vanquish) at present so will hopefully do a full review at some point

    I don't see that happening. Different cartridges, different tone arms, different phono cables (going with all WyWired Diamond for the Titan thanks to the suggestions here on AS), different phonostage (DSA), different platforms, even different power sources.

    To be honest, I needed to bring in a Reference level VPI table and I bought it to listen to.

    I thought about the direct drive tables, but Mat explained there is really only one guy who knows how the DD motors are built, work, etc. and he's quite old. They are working on a new solution for DD motors, but it's a ways off.
