As you can see from the images, the HW-40 is a tasteful combination of aluminium, stained solid black walnut wood, and the new Fat Boy 3D printed tonearm. Naturally, the turntable's main feature is an updated and upgraded version of VPI's award-winning direct drive motor.  

As well as the JMW-12 Fatboy Gimbal gifted with Nordost Reference wire, you also get the new VTA Base on the Fly and a dust cover.
