** New Lower Price *** $1150.00
VPI HW 19 III turntable in optional piano black finish and high dust cover (no cracks).
This heavy steel plinth is suspended from wood chassis via 4 springs (springs replaced 5 years ago)
All is perfectly level once feet are threaded in (feet includes foam dampeners).
Includes $400 SAMA (Stand Alone Motor Assembly) not seen in pictures ( it sits underneath plinth).
I have the SAMA wired to the normal on/ off button on front left side of wood chassis.
With SAMA positioned correctly, motor vibration on plinth and platter is reduced to zero.
Includes WT Classic Tonearm just back from $250 service from Audio Connection.
Also includes $150 upgraded VPI heavy screw down record clamp.
According to Nick at Audion Connection, this setup, esp. with the WT arm, offers a more sophisticated sound than the current popular $2700 non-suspended, non-motor isolated, aluminum platter VPI Classic table.
Like many other Well Tempered tonearm classifieds, local pickup is greatly preferred. Free heavy silestone base for motor included in local pickup. Silestone base can also be shipped, but weighs 20 lbs. I do have VPI SAMA motor and WT tonearm original boxes, but if shipped,can not supply silicon fluid for the WT tonearm. Will send link for ordering the 100,00cST viscosity silicone fluid online ( $10 to $20 cost) Photocopies of both the turntable and tonearm instruction manuals and Well Tempered Arm Protractor will be included. Complete shipment would consist of two or three boxes if shipped. Phono cartridge and record lift device not included.
