Price drop to $999 - FIRM
It seems like the Audiogon communication system is not working well. If you want to buy, make offer, or ask a question, please contact me directly at 213-915-8768 or Howard@Audioguy.net. I have made several offers on other units to multiple sellers this memorial day weekend and have not received a response from anyone. This leads me to believe Audiogon is having issues.
VPI HW-19 Junior, with AudioCraft AC-300C single pivot design tone arm, and Audio Technica AT150MLX cartridge. Everything works 100%. The cartridge has played about 200 albums and 75 7" 45rpm records in the past year. Although I'm not the original owner of the turntable and arm, I bought the cartridge brand new and am the only owner. The only purpose was to digitize my albums.
Everything is in excellent condition. There is a minor flaw/scratch in the front face of the wood which is visible in the pictures, and this is why I'm rating it as a 6. I would rate the dust cover 7/10 as it's in great shape, but very minor signs of the swirls.
The tonearm is just amazing. If you've never experience a single pivot tonearm, you have to try it out at least once in your life. It's the absolute best tracking arm I've ever used. This is a vintage arm which currently fetches between $600-$1,000 in the used market.
I don't have the original box for the turntable, therefore I don't want to ship. Local pick-up only. I do have the original owner's manual for the VPI, the original box and owner's manual to the AudioCraft arm and Audio Technica cartridge.
Pick-up in the W. Los Angeles area only - near Santa Monica. To be paid in cash at time of pick-up. Please call 213-915-8768.
