VPI Super Prime Scout Limited Edition

We did it again! 

 

The Prime Scout is an amazing turntable. But leave it to Uncle Kevvy to stick his nose into business to grind out something truly amazing. Look at any VPI turntable as the sum of parts. The plinth, tonearm, tonearm base, motor, platter, and feet. So look at this as a Prime Scout or Scout II, with the following options:

Instead of the much cheaper 9” arm and lower-end base, we are giving you the upgraded 10.5” JMW-10 aluminum tonearm. Pretty cool, eh? What's better than getting a longer tonearm with better tracking? Well… we also included VPI's VTA on-the-fly tonearm base! This means that you can fine-tune VTA while you listen, which is critical to eliminate top end sibilance. This is a big deal. The tonearm and base by themselves are $2200!!

Next up: The platter. This isn’t the same platter you see on the Prime Scout. This is the MASSIVE 20-pound platter you find on the Prime and Classic series. And a massive platter is CRITICAL to isolate the record, as well as providing inertia for consistent speed. It sells for $1000.

There's more??? The feet: These are not the same feet as the Prime Scout... though they look similar. These are the bad-ass mamba-jamba Classic Feet. They sell for $400.

Last, but not least, you also get VPI's Deluxe Delrin/Stainless steel screw-down record clamp. Then, we had the plinth finished in white, rather than black. It's absolutely stunning!

Now…all of these upgrades add up to $58,997.32 as far as we can see. Your price my brutha or sista? $2799!! Get down with yo’ bad self!!
