RE: Only ask TAS or another review publication? What about the manufacturer? Its a two way street. nt

Well it is a two way street - I have been offered free equipment and turned it down because the price was too high.

I don't want to have to put something in my equipment list or stand by unless I actually stand by it.

I am not going to buy something only because I could get a discount on the item. 4everyoung below indicated that VPI didn't want to give out more "free" turntables. Which suggests that a lot of reviewers got free ones.
And it probably worked given how big VPI is in the field - some manufacturers view giving stuff away as a cost of marketing. In Hong Kong they view it as a bribe.

If the thing is being offered for free - it probably isn't worth having.
