VPI er en nestor innen HighEnd plateavspilling. Nå lanserer dette amerikankse selskapet to nye platespillere, og de blir vist frem for første gang nå i helgen på Hong Kong HiFi Show. Det er også en helt ny arm som lanseres.
VPI Avenger er en spiller i de øvre sjiktet, og er forberedt for montering av tre armer samtidig. Den andre nykommeren hører hjemme i VPI sitt innstegssegment, og er en Limited Edition av Scout Junior i Freedom Red. Produsert i en farge som matcher den medfølgende Ortofon 2M red…
Armen er den minst ruvende av de nylanserte produktene. Den er ifølge VPI den første 3D-printede 12-tommersarmen, designet av Jonathan Mathew Weisfeld.

VPI Industries is a family own American Made company that takes pride in its work and its workers! Every member of the VPI team is part of the family! After almost 40 years of design and engineering VPI pushes the limit of technology and music by incorporating 3D printing into their turntable designs on another level.
The VPI Avenger: Magnetic Drive Turntable with the ability to mount up to 3 tonearms of any make and size. This statement turntable has a built in upgrade path making it accessible both in its complete form and with the option to build it up over time. The VPI Avenger will be a statement by original owner and designer Harry Weisfeld.
The VPI JMW 12-3D Tonearm with Nordost Reference wire: VPI has been on the cutting edge of 12″ tonearm design, now they are the first to 3D print a 12″ arm! Totally dampened, heat resistant, and ridged, this new design lets people listen in “3D”! The 3D arm was first developed over a year ago by VPI but now has been joint with Nordost wiring with their superb reference wire! The arm is a tribute/memorial to the contributing designer and son Jonathan Mathew Weisfeld (JMW).
The Limited VPI Scout Jr. in Freedom Red: The Scout Jr. has taken off as an entry level statement turntable which includes the Ortofon 2M Red. For a limited time/while supply lasts, the Scout Jr. will be available with an Ortofon Quintet Red in a matching Freedom Red chassis.
All three new products will be available for purchase by September 1st. All products have been proudly designed and made in America by the VPI team!
