no longer for sale

I am selling my VPI Classic 1,  30th Anniversary Model which I can find no fault with what so ever. I am downsizing my home and need to sell 2 of my 3 systems so I am keeping my Super Scoutmaster Reference and letting someone else enjoy my Classic. I am including the Ortofon 2M Black that is currently mounted and in excellent condition. This cartridge has been called the finest MM available on today’s market.
 
This sale also includes the deluxe heavy center cap weight but I have a VPI periphery ring clamp available for an additional $450. These cost 1,000 new.
 
Everything will be shipped in the original factory boxes which are in excellent condition.

 

The VPI Classic was originally made as a limited edition 30th anniversary table.  However, it caught on so well that it found a permanent place in the VPI line.  It went through an evolution over the years from style of the wood finish as well as the location of the motor.  The Classic was Harry's hat tip to the original HW-19.  Originally when it was made the top steel was separated into two pieces with a strip of rubber in between.  In time and after vibration tests it was discovered there was no sonic difference between the separate triangular shape over the motor and having one solid piece of steel stretching across the entire table.

The VPI “Classic Turntable” comes standard with the unipivot JMW-10.5i tonearm Special Edition in rigid mount mode.  The “Classic Turntable” uses new VPI pure copper wire, a solid plinth with black oak or walnut finish (at no additional cost), a solid mounted AC synchronous motor, new cast aluminum platter, silent inverted bearing, and new isolation feet derived from the HR-X.

The sound of the “Classic Turntable” is fast, clean, wide open, with deep powerful bass, and unequaled in speed stability.  The “Classic Turntable” gives any turntable made regardless of price a serious "run for the money."

This completely new design has produced the simplest and one of the best sounding VPI tables to date.

 

“The Classic, in my opinion, exceeds the performance of [VPI’s] ScoutMaster series and breaks new sonic ground… at a breathtakingly low price. I think this is Weisfeld’s best sounding design. If ever there were a best buy in ‘tables, this is it!” 
– Harry Pearson, The Absolute Sound, Golden Ear Award Issue, June/July 2009
