VPI - Classic 2 Turntable

VPI Classic 2


"If ever there were a best buy in 'tables, this it it."
- Harry Pearson

The VPI “Classic Turntable” comes standard with the unipivot JMW-Classic 1 tonearm Special Edition in rigid mount mode.  The “Classic Turntable” uses new VPI pure copper wire, a solid plinth with black oak or walnut finish (at no additional cost), a solid mounted AC synchronous motor, new cast aluminum platter, silent inverted bearing, and new isolator feet derived from the HR-X. .

The sound of the “Classic Turntable” is fast, clean, wide open, with deep powerful bass, and unequalled in speed stability.  The “Classic Turntable” gives any turntable made regardless of price a serious "run for the money."

This completely new design has produced the simplest and one of the best sounding VPI tables to date.

VPI "Classic Turntable" Features:

  • New investment cast aluminum high inertia platter with precision inverted bearing.

  • Speed stability on par with a master tape - Due to the rigid mounting of motor - platter - tonearm there isn't any random motion to cause speed instabilities.

  • Noise rejection allowing the "Classic Turntable" to sit on a wood shelf near four 15" subwoofers and having virtually no feedback.

  • Lack of random motion between the motor - platter - tonearm gives the ultimate in low level resolution. Not only does this rigidity improve speed stability, it also allows the retrievel of low level information with the world's great turntables and pushing against master tapes.

  • Absolutely solid, non-resonating laminated one-piece chassis holding all comonents. This is not a wooden frame; it is a solid laminated 2.5" thick MDF block with 11 gauge steel attached to the top with silicone and long bolts through all the layers. The chassis weighs 30 pounds and is totally non-resonant.

  • Real black oak or walnut wood veneer finish.

  • RCA jack termination so you can use the interconnect of your choice.

  • Tonearm anti-skate - For those that require the fine adjustment of anti-skate, it is standard on the JMW-10.5i SE.

  • Optional lift off full dustcover is available.

  • Optional periphery ring clamp.
  • Optional SDS power supply.
