VPI Prime Scout

cert15.jpgUpscale Audio is the only VPI dealer in California that is VPI Trained & Certified to handle all of your VPI needs!

 

Re-introducing the audio world to the best-selling VPI table of all time! Better than the old one, better than it should be at this price! The Scout was one of the world's best-reviewed turntable! The evolution to the Prime Scout drives to push the envelope a little further with a cleaner sense of build and branding. The Prime Scout is simple to set-up, you can have the table up and running in just minutes!

"Rather, this is a flat-out, unconditional, 'Holy Mother of Crap, I can't believe how good this thing is' recommendation. It's hard to imagine another way of spending $****.** that will add this much to your system."
– Art Dudley, Stereophile

Please note that while the feet on the Prime Scout look similar to the feet on our Hyper Scout II, the Hyper Scout II features Classic feet which are an upgrade w/ ball-bearing vibration isolation.
