2009 Golden Ear Award Winner from Harry Pearson in The Absolute Sound!
VPI's new Classic Turntable is an homage to the incredible VPI designs that have made VPI synonymous with state of the art turntable design for the last 25 years. The VPI Classic comes standard with the incredible new stainless steel version of the JMW-10.5i unipivot tonearm in rigid mount mode. The Classic Turntable uses new VPI pure copper wire, a solid plinth with either a black oak or walnut finish, a solid fixed mounted AC synchronous motor, silent inverted bearing, and new Mini HR-X isolation feet.
The sound of the Classic Turntable is fast, clean, wide open, with deep powerful bass, and unparalleled speed stability. The Classic Turntable gives any turntable made regardless of price a serious run for the money. When we heard this table being played at the 2009 CES Show in Las Vegas we were all bowled over with its incredible bass definition, soundstaging and incredible pace and timing.
This completely new design is an incredible deck with an even better price... the easiest to use and set-up and best sounding VPI turntable to date.
* Speed stability on par with a master tape.
* Noise rejection that lets the Classic Turntable sit near four 15” subwoofers cleanly.
* Lack of random motion between the motor, platter, and tonearm giving the ultimate in low level resolution.
* Absolutely solid, non-resonating laminated one-piece chassis holding all components.
The Classic Turntable is 20.75 wide by 15.75 deep, and weighs 45 pounds.
