Since this is the "Weisfeld Corner" here is an update what has been going on. I've learned and continue to learn how drastically different have 3 children can be. Amazing how being slightly outnumbered sets off the balance. That being said, the experience has been the greatest in the world. I'm listening to more music than ever with Shyla and she is emerging into really enjoying this industry and Karate, so she has my two favorite things going so far. I'm constantly trying to give her an "out" to make sure these are activities she actually enjoys and not her trying to make me happy. With all of that, it has been rough firing on all cylinders but we have so many exciting projects we have been working on and getting ready for upcoming shows. Speaking of which we were all over the place at Florida and had I believe 10 different rooms featuring our products. That was an amazing experience especially since Shyla was with me and took her own "Show Report". Actually I'll post some pictures onto this thread sometime tomorrow. Shyla actually semi mounted a "Shyla" cartridge. Shyla asked and I couldn't say "no" so I let her match the colors on the leads and put the screws/finger lift onto the head shell connecting the cartridge. She did it! She really did a fantastic job for a being six. Watch out Michael Tre and Fremer, Shyla is going to put you guys out of a setup job! We will be at Southwest Audio fest with a number of fantastic partners and here are links to those individual blogs. We have one more blog post coming about Acora and VAC who are using a Titan Direct. https://www.vpiindustries.com/single-post/vpi-with-genesis-and-more-at-southwest-audio-2023 https://www.vpiindustries.com/single-post/vpi-with-reference-analog-and-more-at-southwest-audio-2023 https://www.vpiindustries.com/single-post/vpi-with-nexus-audio-technologies-and-more-at-southwest-audio-2024 Also, we are having a Music Event at the VPI Dojo this weekend as well. https://www.vpiindustries.com/single-post/vpi-music-event-with-audiovector-and-more

Well this was certainly a suprise. I was messing with a lot of settings but had frustration since it seem like it was totally working. Today (5 minutes ago) I hopped on the mobile app (which I haven't shared yet) since I wanted to respond to the cleaning post but I'm trapped under two adorable children. The suprise is it seeks all the update and settings applied to the mobile app and (at least to me) seems to be working great. I'm going to look into it more but so far I'm having such an easier time navigating and responding right on the app. I will look into this more after this weekend's event but fir me it was very encouraging to see this. Anyway, stay tuned and I will keep you all posted!

I think I'm going to do a minor pause on the VPI forum. (I'm going to post this same message on there as well) There has been a lot of feedback and requests and I have learned a lot about the backend since it came back this past September. However the overall I want to do gets a bit messy on the back end. That being said, we have actually found a proper developer and over IT guy who maybe joining the VPI team either directly or contractually to help us on all of these aspects for our site and more. In general I want to bring this forum to an informative and functionality wise platform that you all can use as an alternative! Anyway, big shoutout to all of you who continue to inspire and encourage us to bring our best to the table everyday! Happy listening out there and See you all in Tampa!

No matter any situation and what may happen I feel there is never a point to dredge up the negative. But people all need to be talked to with respect. Whether it is me or any of my workers none of us are perfect. We all make mistakes, but no one wants or is motivated by being insulted. All of that being said, everyone who ever has an issue or problem with their VPI table/product their concerns and problems are VALID and deserve to be heard. I just took down a post because it went past constructive education learning and turned into a sling fest. Luckily we are all adults and frankly since having my 3rd child in September the idea of holding onto any negative thoughts is a waste of time. The important thing about that post is in the end the custom part was fabricated in our factory, the correct parts needed were determined, and all were shipped (minor delay because there was confusion on the address). Lets keep it all positive or at least where no one is on the attack or defensive. Thanks to everyone for being part of the VPI family!

Back in the day Harry would get bored with the standard production line and sometimes make a change or special edition table just for fun. He would put the design together, build it, work with Leo and they would make 5 or 10 of something. Now year later we have Harry and Howie, a newer member ot the VPIfamily repeating history with Harry & Howie's Workshop. Check out what the latest limited runs are or even request a crazy design of your own. https://www.vpidirect.com/collections/harry-howies-workshop

So far it is looking like we will be rocking the Adams room with Prima Luna, Nordost, MC Audio Tech, and our Classic Signature and Signature DS! We will have records, swag, and other fun items as well. We also will be having a whole bunch of fun events including the return of our Casino night! More news to follow in the next few days. Any suggestions for other fun things you'd like to see at CAF? 😀

As we are one week until Capital stay tuned for a lot more information to be posted and shared with an upcoming product newsletter within the week. In the Jefferson room we will be featuring the Latest and Greatest in the Acora Speaker line as well as Audio Research electronics. It will be the same electronics we brought to CAF last year but they have all been upgraded to the latest specs. In general I'm also excited to see what is planned for AR in the future and the announcements that will be tied in. CHanging it up a bit by running Cardas cable for the system with the VPI Titan Direct leading the charge. At the moment the cartridges that are 100% are the VDH Frog Gold, VPI Shyla, VPI Goldy, and more than likely the Audio-Technica Anniversary cartridge. We will also be showcasing our new isolation platforms for both turntables and electronics. More information to come but I hope you all are excited about the lineup so far.

THe word is out! This is another reason I've been MIA recently. The email on this one came in not too long after the baby was born and we honestly thought it was fake. The White House followed up with a phone call and after a long process we made this custom beuty!

I've been blown away by the quality of the recording for the sound track of an anime I watch, Attack on Titan. The idea to get the sound track loosely came from Fremer when he was telling me about how wildly impressive Japanese recordings were, especially soundtracks. I didn't get deeper into that conversation or which soundtracks, but it led to me searching! I've always enjoyed this music and was happy to see it available on vinyl.  Now I have friends who want to buy it as well.  What is something weird or soundtrack that really hit everyone else? https://www.amazon.com/Attack-Titan-Season-Exclusive-Soundtrack/dp/B09YVSLN71/ref=asc_df_B09YVSLN71/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=564678144897&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=2096626736775403610&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9003680&hvtargid=pla-1655876464056&psc=1(https://www.amazon.com/Attack-Titan-Season-Exclusive-Soundtrack/dp/B09YVSLN71/ref=asc_df_B09YVSLN71/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=564678144897&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=2096626736775403610&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9003680&hvtargid=pla-1655876464056&psc=1)

Something I used to do pre-COVID was provide a weekly to bi-weekly update to the dealers and sometimes with blogs and forums about what the heck is really going on behind the scenes. Communication and information is always the best so here we go! Yesterday we launched our Dealer Newsletter about our End of 2023 celebration. Let's be honest, 2023 is another one that could have gone better, but here we are! There are 4 main products at drastically different price points that will be the main focus at CAF. One of these, since it was already leaked I'll share more, will be the Signature DS. Originally dubbed the "Mini" from a prototype code name standpoint, the Signature DS takes the design and engineering of the Signature 21 and distills it down to a more affordable package.  The detailed pages will be live soon. Below is a cleaner proffesional shot. We will be showcasing our VPI Titan Turntable as our main high-end source but will also have the other tables active and on live display and demo. In the office we have had some minor delays. A number of us on the team have been having poor personal issues at the same time. If you haven't heard from us please be patient or feel free to give us a poke.  The whole VPI team has been staying on point with stepping up our own QC process, testing, and prototyping for new products to come. There is one table that we will be looking at differently as Harry fast tracked a smart design.  40+ years ago if Harry wanted something he would work on a napkin, then go into the workshop and turn that napkin drawing into a product.  He wanted an affordable turntable that could house a 12” arm.  He also wanted a simple design that could house 2 tonearms.  Well Harry did exactly that.  He made, the "Harry". I'll post pictures of that as soon as Harry actually shows up on the forum! 🤣 I'll leave it at that on the updates for now. 😎

Well everyone, I'm home with the little man, life is getting a bit more stable, and I've continued to work and improve the backend of our site. Some improvements are more obvious, some more subtle. Nonetheless, while it is still a work in progress it seems like we are ready to open the flood gates and make this forum a bit more public and accessible. Thoughts all?

We are finally home and readjusting to having another resident at the Weisfeld's! Honestly it has been fantastic! Jane's family has been beyond helpful, Shyla has turned into a little mommy, and Goldy... she is like the baby protector! Lots of positive thoughts all around and excitement for the future.
