Product Description

This unique mint-condition VPI Nomad has just become available for sale. It's ready-to-go and will work with any amplifier.

The Nomad includes an in-built headphone amp and phono stage. The previous owner has had a profesionally-installed terminal block installed so that you can also bypass the phono stage should you wish to run an external one. This is a fantastic mod for this table! 

The tonearm is brand new, as some changes to the original arm were not to spec so we decided to install a fresh one.

Ths table is supplied with a brand new Ortofon 2M Red MM cartridge which was also standard, and the cartridge that the inbuilt phono stage is designed to match.  

The VPI Nomad is the first all in one high-end entry level turntable.  Complete with a headphone amplifier, phonostage, and pre-mounted Ortofon 2M Red cartridge on a 10 inch Gimballed / Yoke bearing tonearm, it is the perfect solution to enjoying your records!  It also has standard RCA connections providing the ability to connect to a standard amplifier and desktop/floor standing speakers. The Nomad turntable is a precision instrument that has been thoroughly tested to create the musical experience you're looking for!

VPI has just engineered the best-sounding, most unique under-$2k turntable we've ever heard. After more than 30 years in business, VPI sets a new analog benchmark with the Nomad. Not only is the VPI Nomad completely designed and built here in the USA, it betters many models priced well over $3,000. 

Spin any LP, and the Nomad will leave you stunned. Backgrounds are dead silent. Bass is thunderous and completely controlled. Soundstaging sounds remarkable. We're so astonished by the utter simplicity and stunning sonics, we could go on and on. But nothing we can say fully captures the thrilling experience we've had playing the Nomad. If you are in the market for a 'table (even a more expensive one), we highly encourage an in-home audition. After all, it's a no-risk opportunity. If you are not as impressed with the Nomad as we are, we'll take it back. Guaranteed.

The advanced technology inside Nomad speaks to its excellence. VPI engineered a new gimbaled-bearing tonearm with no-nonsense looks and form-follows-function design. It's utterly a great-sounding arm: nothing more and nothing less. And the newly designed platter/spindle/bearing assembly was tested, tweaked, re-tested, and improved until company founder Harry Weisfeld was satisfied. Given his perfectionist mentality, that's saying something!

The Nomad also includes an attribute we've never seen in any 'table: a built-in headphone amplifier--one specifically designed for Nomad, to boot. Feel free to plug in any pair of 'cans and listen through the night without disturbing anyone. But please do us a favor. Since you'll likely be on the move or dancing around to the sweet sounds of Nomad, get a headphone extension cable!

A built-in phono preamplifier and Ortofon 2M Red moving-magnet cartridge round out the Nomad's other unique features. They work in literal harmony to provide the best-possible sound from the Ortofon and make the 'table sing. Plus, the phono preamp is built to perfectly complement the Ortofon 2M Series. So if you want better performance, simply upgrade the stylus.We have them all available here.

NOTE: The output of the Nomad is line-level only (plug and play); the built-in phono stage cannot be bypassed and you cannot use an outboard phono preamp.

Nomad is simplicity personified! Once you get your Nomad, just open the box, put the platter over the spindle, and plug in the turntable. That's it. No additional work is necessary. Everything has been done at the factory. The alignment is completed; the tracking force is already set. You'll be spinning tunes in under a minute.

The VPI Nomad is bound to make serious waves in the audiophile community and with analog lovers the world over. Call Music Direct now and hear why for yourself.
