I'm selling my beloved VPI Scoutmaster. The only reason for this sell is that I recently puchased a VPI Aries 3 w/ JMW-10.5i tonearm. I purchased the Scoutmaster new in June of 2009. It is in excellent condition with no scratches, dents, dings, or imperfections. There is the usual wear on the tonearm from where it rested in it's cradle. The mounted Dynavector cartridge in the photos is NOT INCLUDED.
This Scoutmaster has the upgraded 300 RPM motor and includes the JMW-9 Signature tonearm with the Nordost Valhalla wiring and the VPI anti-skate device. I have the original box, manual, and accessories. Retail for this Scoutmaster would be around $3000!!
The Scoutmaster combines key features from several of VPIs' most successful turntables. It uses the Aries 3 platter and inverted bearing, a larger version of the steel Scout motor assembly with fused IEC socket and 300-RPM 24 pole motor, and a dual Scout chassis with a steel center. The table stands 19" by 14" and weighs 48 pounds.
The Scoutmaster is a Scout with a shot of testosterone for a complete musical experience.
Several upgrade options are available from VPI such as JMW-10.5i tonearm, periphery ring, the SDS power supply, center weight, new Aluminum platter/bearing assembly, and HR-X Minifeet.
1 7/8" thick acrylic platter
2 1/4" thick MDF/Steel center chassis
Solid aluminum motor assembly with 300-rpm motor in isolated steel housing
Beautiful black satin finish
