VPI HW19 with Outboard Speed Controller 

This is one of the classics in turntables and a best seller in a crowded field.  It is visually stunning and will outperform just about anything in this price range. 

 It includes the VPI outboard speed controller capable of precisely managing the motor speed by fine tuning the speed.  It also provides a simple push button method of changing speeds from 33 to 45. 

The cabinet is a beautiful and rich walnut finish which is in perfect condition.  Not a single noticeable scratch or any discoloration to be found. 

The motor is housed in a large and heavy detached motor pod which sits under the table without touching it.  It looks like it has been upgraded from the original as the casing is much heavier and larger. 

The plinth is made out of polished and brushed acrylic.  The tonearm is a highly regarded and rare Alphason Xenon.  It has a removably tonearm cable which gives you lots of upgrade options with regards to cables. 

The platter also looks to be upgraded as its 1.5” in thickness and weighs in at a whopping 16lbs.  There is a hollow section on the bottom that is filled with some sort of damping material.  The bearing is the non-inverted type which any believe is a better sounding bearing system although you’ll need to lubricate it with a few drops more frequently.  

Although not pictured, I will include a anti-scate weight if you like to use one.

As a nice bonus it includes the upgraded VPI record clamp worth an additional $200. 

The acrylic cover is in nice condition free from any cracks but it does have an occasional and inevitable scratch here and there. 

There is no cartridge included but we can fit it a the following options which will include calibration (about a 2hr detailed process of perfectly setting an calibrating many parameters to ensure highest performance). 

   1. New ClearAudio Concept $250

  1. New Sumiko BluePoint #2 $449
  2. New Sumiko BluePoint special Evo 3 $549
  3. New ClearAudio Virtuoso V2 Ebony $899

  5. Pre-Owned Van-den-hall MC10 MC Cartridge ($1500) for $900
  6. Grado Black 2. $125

To purchase any of these just send an offer for the asking price of the table PLUS the cartridge cost above.  It will take about a week to process and install. 

The table will be professional packaged for safe arrival. 



Skyfi.nyc is a small startup business specializing in the purchase, reconditioning and reselling of select high end audio equipment.  We only buy equipment the we admire and are passionate about.  No mid-fi, no gimmicks and no junk.  

Each piece of equipment is cosmetically restored and fully tested in our well-equipped lab by an engineer with 30+ years of experience in the Hifi world.  If it does not meet or exceed the original manufactures specifications, it will not be sold.  We are select about the equipment we purchase, focusing on mostly analog, high-build quality, American and European built units.

Through our sister company, which is an authorized dealer for McIntosh, Audio Research, Sonus Faber, ClearAudio, Project and Sony ES, we have access to OEM parts and service support.  If you are local and are looking for any new equipment for the above mentioned manufacturers, please drop us a line as we can arrange both sales and professional installation in the tri-state area


If you would like to make an offer, please don't email or message us unless you are looking to trade something in.  

If we are accepting offers, you will see a button on the listing page to do so.  Please use it, as it is very hard to track offers through email or messaging.  This way, we are all also better protected.   If you don’t see a “offer” button its because we are not taking offers on this item.  Please don’t bother to make one.  


We prefer working through PayPal, which allows you to use a credit card or bank transfer.  We do not charge extra for any payment fees.  You can also send us a personal check (which will need to clear before shipping), certified check, money order or wire transfer.  International clients without access to PayPal should use a bank wire transfer. 

If you are picking up an item, we don not accept PayPal, you must pay in person with cash, certified or bank check or wire transfer.  If you make a PayPal payment it will be returned. 


We accept trade-ins of equal or lesser value under certain conditions.  Simply ask and let us know the exact model, condition and what accessories are included such as a box, remote, manual, etc.  We will only consider high-end equipment from mainstream manufacturers such as McIntosh, Mark Levinson, Audio Research, Krell, etc. and will typically pass on displays, projectors, receivers, dated processors and mid-fi equipment of any type.  We will offer a fair value for your equipment, but keep in mind we are running a business and will need to be able to sell the equipment at a profit after investing a great deal of time and resources in testing, certifying, repairing, cleaning and packaging the incoming equipment.  If you are looking for top dollar we suggest attempting to sell it directly to an end user.  

SELL US YOUR GEAR (Working or Broken)

We will also purchase your used or broken gear and arrange pickup if you are in our local market.  Just drop us a note for a quote, but be sure to include the condition and what is included.  


We are currently operating from a residence in Ridgewood, NJ.  You are welcome to make an appointment if there is a piece of equipment you would like to see in operation before or after purchase.  We have a well-equipped, dedicated listening room with tons of equipment of all makes and models.  We are not a store, so please don’t make an appointment if you are just curious as to how a speaker or piece of equipment sounds.  In essence, no tire kickers please.  

If you are in NYC and cannot make it out to Ridgewood, we can arrange pickup in Union Square (14th Street) after the purchase.   You can call or text  (646) 852-2073 with any questions or to schedule an appointment.  We can also arrange to install, calibrate and tune the gear in your listening room if you are in the local area.  This is super useful when purchasing large speakers or heavy amplifiers.  It is also great for ensuring your new turntable is setup correctly in its final resting place.
