"if you're just starting out in analog or upgrading an existing front-end, and if you can spend $1500 on a turntable and tonearm, here's some advice: Go hear VPI's new player right away." - $850 (turntable) $1500 (with arm) Stereophile 2003

"The Aries lack of coloration across the frequency band, coupled to its standard-setting background silence and ease of set-up and maintenance, make it an easy recommendation for those who would rather listen to music than adjust springs, pumps or attempt to defy gravity."
