Genesis will be proudly presenting the VPI Avenger Direct turntable, equipped with the state-of-the-art Hyper Sonic X4 cartridge, alongside an impressive lineup of other high-end products as shared by CEO Gary Koh:

“Looking forward to the first SouthWest Audio Fest next week. I'll be showing with two old friends Brian Tucker and Bob Clarke. They are both importer/distributor of some great brands - so we'll have an interesting international system.

Representing the best of U.S. design and manufacturing will be the Avenger Direct from VPI Industries. From far away New Zealand, we'll have The Wand Tonearm and turntable. The Hyper Sonic X4 cartridge precision assembled and built in Switzerland will extract music from the grooves.

France will be there with the Analog Audio Design TP-1000 reel-to-reel machine which will be extracting music from magnetic tapes. Electronics are Hungarian from Heed Audio. Puritan Audio Laboratories from England will be conditioning and cleaning-up the hotel power supply to feed it all and Lateral Audio equipment racks will be holding it all up.

And finally, converting electrical signals into sound - two transducer companies, Austrian Trenner & Friedl and American Genesis Advanced Technologies, Inc.

VPI Turntables have long been celebrated for their exceptional build quality, precision engineering, and outstanding audio performance. Each turntable is meticulously crafted with a deep commitment to delivering the most immersive and authentic vinyl playback experience possible.
