VPI Aires Scout Turntable JMW-9 Tonearm Excellent! [Expired]


no longer for sale

This is a fantastic, entry-level turntable from VPI in excellent condition. There are more reviews, awards and comments available on this little gem than Carter has pills. (Does that date me?) The VPI Scout also has a worthy upgrade path, virtually from foot to platter to junction box, should someone want to pursue that course. I am the second owner of this turntable. This offering comes with: Turntable Complete; Stand Alone Motor Assembly; Unused New Belt; VPI Record Clamp; VPI Alignment Jig, Dustcover; and All Paperwork. Sorry... No Original Box. Overall, the table is in fantastic condition - not a blemish. There are, however, two small issues to note that leave this offering less than "perfect": 1) The cueing mechanism is "sticky." It operates perfectly in the UP position, but it needs a little help going down. 2) The dustcover has plenty of little scratches and scrapes and get this... the former owner drilled four tiny, little holes and had installed a wooden handle on it! I removed the handle, but the holes remain. You can see them on the dustcover photo. This turntable functions perfectly and sound great to boot. I will pack it extremely securely for shipping, and local pick-up is welcome. I am a trusted and active Audiogon Member with perfect feedback. Please contact me for any questions. Rating is for cueing mechanism only. VPI quoted $55 over the phone for a replacement. It wasn't worth it to me, as the mechanism is not really "broken." I cue mostly by hand anyway Price: $1,100 plus shipping and PayPal Fees. Zip Code 62901
