Product Description

VPI have just announced the brand new VPI Prime turntable. Priced between the Classic 1 and 3, the Prime offers you an evolved Scout-type plinth, Classic 12" platter (which can accommodate the VPI periphery ring), newly designed feet, the award-winning 3D printed tonearm with an on-the-fly VTA adjuster. This table takes the great features of all the other tables and bundles them into one. 

"It's not even funny how f***ing incredible this 3D arm is." - Joey Weiss, Harry Pearon's Apprentice

The shape of the Prime is meant to have a curvier and sexy look compared to the "classic" look of our tables over the past 10 years. At same time having the footprint to accommodate the space needed for a 10 inch 3D arm. We were able to get the price lowerfor the 3D arm because of our improved technology and increased volume in printing and supply.
