The VPI Scout turntable is one of the best-reviewed turntable on the planet! The lowest priced turntable in Stereophile's Class B, the VPI Scout has broken price to performance records all over the world.

For improved stability and damping, the Scout's chassis is made from 1 1/8" thick MDF bonded to a 12 gauge steel plate. The massive platter is composed of 1 3/8" acrylic and is mounted to an inverted bearing of Teflon and brass on a 60 case hardened shaft. The AC synchronous motor is contained in a separate steel housing and drives the platter via an Aries belt for smooth, quiet operation.

The JMW-9 tonearm is the perfect complement to the Scout, offering all of the advantages of a unipivot tonearm at a bargain price. The arm has a low friction bearing mounted on a solid stainless steel rod with a knurled ring to set VTA (Vertical Tracking Angle). As with the more expensive JMW-10 and JMW-12 arms, the tonearm wand assembly of the JMW-9 can be removed and replaced in seconds, allowing instant cartridge changes with multiple armwands. An RCA junction box allows any RCA-terminated interconnects to be used.

The VPI Scout turntable and JMW-9 tonearm are offered as a package. It has a retail value of US$1600.00 ($1650.00 with cover) for a savings of $200. The Scout turntable and JMW-9 tonearm are available separately for $900 each. Options are SDS power supply and phono cartridge.

We would be happy to assist you with best pricing and phono cartridge recommendations.
