no longer for sale

New VPI Aries 3 reference turntable with JMW 12.7 metal tonearm, factory A stock, sealed in original factory boxes and purchased from VPI authorized dealer.  This is the latest iteration of the Aries 3 reference turntable and was made by VPI in January 2016.  Will ship in 2 factory boxes.  The Aries 3 approaches the performance level of the HR-X reference turntable but with a smaller more manageable footprint.  Retail price for this Aries 3 was $8000.  I'll also include a new Gingko custom tabletop dust cover made for the Aries 3.  The Gingko cover is new and still sealed in original factory box.  A $400 value for this custom cover.

I've included a stock photo of the Aries 3.  Please note that the turntable for sale has the optional longer JMW 12.7 metal tonearm, a $2000 upgrade over the standard 10 inch metal tonearm.
