VPI Nomad V2
The VPI Nomad V2, unlike it's predecessor, was fully up-gradable. Originally when making the V1 Nomad we did not expect the table to be upgraded and viewed as an all in one solution that would be passed down when the owner upgraded. Instead the DIY mayhem began! To accommodate we made adjustments to the table making it both adjustable, up-gradable, and def-eatable electronics. However, the timing of this was too soon and confusing and eventually led to the re-launching of the product as the VPI Player.
The VPI Nomad is the first all in one high-end entry level turntable. Complete with a headphone amplifier, phonostage, and pre-mounted Ortofon 2M Red cartridge on a 9 inch Gimballed / Yoke bearing tonearm, it is the perfect solution to enjoying your records! It also has standard RCA connections providing the ability to connect to a standard amplifier and desktop/floor standing speakers. The Nomad turntable is a precision instrument that has been thoroughly tested to create the musical experience you're looking for!
