This beautiful one-off fire-red turntable was a pet project hand-assembled with great care at VPI HQ by an analog guru that knows what he’s doing. HRX feet, JMW-10 aluminum tonearm, deep custom platter and an upgraded 300 rpm motor are some of the enhancements to this "cherry" table. Included in the deal is a custom made MyAudioShield clear acrylic plinth cover and a clear Gingko Audio Cloud vibration control platform ("handballs" the shelf floats on are not included). These two items total north of $500 when purchased new. Note: cartridge is NOT included in this sale. Will pack and ship in original carton and packing materials. Manual included. Freight includes insurance for bid amount. I rated a conservative 8/10 but you’ll probably give it a 9/10! Email me with any questions. Good luck!
