VPI Scout Jr. with
Ortofon MC Quintet Red cartridge
This is our demo unit, and has been carefully handled within the store. It’s complete with all original packaging. It originally came with an Ortofom 2M Red cartridge, but we've bumped it to a nice Ortofon MC Quintet, a $346 value.
The VPI Scout Jr. is a ready to use out of the box high-end entry level turntable, complete with a pre-mounted Ortofon cartridge. The new tonearm is 9 inches long with a Yoke type vertical bearing and damped turntable like horizontal bearing, it is the perfect solution to enjoying your music! The arm is damped in the horizontal plane and free in the vertical plane, this combination breaks up resonances and ads to the enjoyment of the sound.
The Scout Jr. uses a 600 RPM (500 RPM overseas) AC synchronous motor to drive the turntable. This is a precision device that is mounted in a separate box on rubber feet for the ultimate in motor noise isolation.
