VPI Industries Super Scout Master

"With the Super Scoutmaster the music doesn't seem to play so much as it just happens"

Super Scoutmaster Turntable Manual (Word Format)

In 2005, after manufacturing turntables for 27 years, we thought we had seen and done everything. While listening to the Scoutmaster the thought hit us "If this sounds so good what could we do to make it sound better"? Combining the DNA of a Scoutmaster and an HR-X produced the SuperScoutmaster or SSM as it is called. The SSM uses the most accurate motor drive in audio, the HR-X system. The massive flywheel and dual motor assembly controlled by the super accurate SDS power supply gives the smoothest rotation for tape like sound. 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 variations 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 the art" power supply?

The SSM has all of this and more.

Read 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

The SSM comes with everything you need to play your records at the state of the art.  The only option is the Mini-TNT feet, everything else is standard.

The SSM Reference is only available with the JMW 10.5i Tonearm, textured black motor housing, and the 26 lb. super platter.
