VPI HW-19 MkIII/MkIV

 

 

VPI HW-19 turntable MkIII version up-graded to MKIV. Features Oak base, stainless-steel plate with the two-piece acrylic top plate, motor unit from a late model MKIV, TNT platter from a MkIV and a rebuilt-upgraded platter bearing.

.....

Platter/spindle bearing was disassembled, degreased, cleaned and the old flat-spotted ball bearing was removed and a new ceramic nitride ball bearing was installed for the next 25 plus years of spinning vinyl. The combo of the heavy VPI TNT platter and the improved bearing result in a major decrease in the friction in the bearing. The rebuilding of the bearing with the ceramic-nitride ball bearing is a small part that brings a very large level of improvement to the performance of the TT.

 .....

Also included is a VPI motor controller/power line conditioner. This small box lets you set and adjust the actual speed of the platter to your actual home/power line conditions. Simply plug the TT motor into the motor controller, plug the controller into your AC mains supply (or better a power regenerator) and then set the speed of the platter using a strobe and speed disk on the platter. The two adjustment knobs on the motor controller are set for 33.3 and 45 RPM. This very important piece of equipment enables your HW-19 to maintain proper pitch during playback.

 .....

The motor unit came from a late model HW-19 MkIV that was removed from the MkIV years ago and has been sitting in a sealed box. The original motor in the TT was starting up slow and it was a no brainer to install the newer motor unit.

 .....

A new, uncut blank arm-board, with brown paper still attached is included. Rather then saddle the new owner with some old broken down cheap tone-arm I opted to let the new owner supple their own arm or source a new good quality arm. This TT will support and deserves a much better arm then you see on the vast majority of used HW-19s. Think high model Rega, Origin Live Encounter or Illustrious, SME IV etc., coupled with a good quality cartridge. This rebuilt and upgraded HW-19 with a good arm and cartridge will compete way above its weight class!!!

 .....

Turntable base unit shows very well with some small marks as expected for its age. Platter and dust cover also show very well with the expected signs of use, but no abuse. Dust cover has no cracks and works well.  Please refer to the attached pictures.
