After 27 years in the turntable business and the release of the VPI HR-X, Harry Weisfeld thought that they had seen and done everything. Then one day while listening to the VPI Scoutmaster and enjoying its glorious sound quality, a question popped into Harry Weisfeld's head: "What could we do to make it better?" Thus came the epiphany. The end result was to cross the VPI Scoutmaster and the HR-X thereby producing the VPI SuperScoutmaster. The Super Scoutmaster uses the most accurate motor drive in the business, the HR-X system. The massive flywheel and dual motor drive controlled by the revolutionary SDS power supply gives the smoothest rotation in the business. You can almost say that if your expensive table doesn't have a flywheel driving it, why is it so expensive?

The finishing touches are the specially designed, totally non-resonant laminated chassis and the periphery ring clamp. The ring clamp lowers warp induced speed variaions to near zero making the combination of HR-X flywheel drive and perfectly level record sound like a master tape.

Before you purchase any expensive table you must compare the facts. Does it have a flywheel drive? Does it have a warp flattening system? Does it have an inverted bearing running on a silent Teflon surface? Does the speed control come from a state of he art power supply? The VPI Super Scountmaster turntable has all of these and more.

See Harry Pearson’s rave review in the Dec/Jan 2005 issue of The Absolute Sound.

“Now here is a surprise. This, the third generation of Harry Weisfeld’s “Scout” series, borders on greatness! In its first form, it was certainly the best buy among American LP playback devices. And if you consider what you will get for extra money in this hot-rod version, the “Super” makes a fine long term investment!” — Absolute Sound Editor’s Choice Award Winner, Issue 150.
