VPI TNT 4 Table, FLYWHEEL, 300 RPM MOTOR, SDS & JMW 12.5 Tonearm:
PRICE REDUCED FROM $4,300 TO $3,900. INCREDIBLE VALUE!!!!!
Original owner selling longtime reference table quasi VPI TNT
4/flywheel + tri-pulley; with the TNT 4 platter (25 lbs. composite of
Aluminum, cork, lead and derlin) and upgraded TNT5 bearing assembly, upgraded stainless/derlin clamp, upgraded 300
RMP motor, SDS speed controller, strobe disk and upgraded JMW 12.5 tone arm+counter
intuitive & VPI silver/copper wire, optional blue isolator feet for motor (see
photos). I started with the TNT Jr. and
upgraded over the years to this configuration. I reverted to upgraded elephant feet combined with brass footer and maple blocs to act as vibration sinks (see note 2). This set-up is incredibly musical yet detailed, with a big soundstage,
deep-full bass, liquid mid-range and extended highs. It is detailed without the edginess of lesser
tables. The set up has been well cared
for and maintained in a non-smoking dedicated sound room however, there are
minor cosmetic blemishes on the plinth and tone arm from use/age, which I
conservatively rate as 7/10. All 6-factory
boxes, manuals, set-up tools included. You will be hard pressed to find a
better sounding table under $8K. Average
Blue book list at $4,300 without tone arm, so essentially you are getting the
JMW 12.5 tone arm and more for free!
Note 1: The cartridge
and brass footers are NOT included.
Note 2: The table
does NOT have the air bladder supports.
As mentioned, I upgraded the table over the years and got rid of the air
bladder system as I did not like the fussy upkeep and blurriness imparted on
the image. I reverted to the upgraded TNT jr elephant feet combined with brass footers and maple blocks to act as vibration
sinks which provided an impressive improvement on clarity, bass punch –
tightness. As shown in the photos this
tweak is recommended for best performance.
Note 3: Buyer pays transaction fee; seller will split cost of shipping if full asking price is paid.
