Orbe SE
Orbe SE $4,695
By eliminating much of the expensive acrylic, the Michell Orbe SE offers most of the Orbe’s qualities in a cheaper, smaller, and to some people aesthetically more pleasing package. An Orbe SE can always be upgraded to a full Orbe by purchasing the double plinth and dustcover. When teamed with an RB250 or RB300 tonearm, the Orbe SE is a surprisingly affordable entry to the Orbe-class of performance.

SG2
SG2
$15,000*
*Price does not include tonearm
Mechanical isolation contributes an additional measure of control. Motor, tonearm, and platter occupy discrete layers within the platform, a tactical separation that prevents noise generated by one mechanism from contaminating another. This strategic alliance — rigidity, compliance, and isolation — lays the groundwork for one of the quietest and most responsive turntables on the market today.

Rock 7

Rock 7 $3,200
*Price does not include tonearm
The Rock 7 has evolved from a number of earlier turntables from Townshend Audio all featuring the famous front end damping trough. The turntable is an open frame basic two speed belt drive mounted on unique Seismic Load Cells. It can accommodate most arms, but ideally our Excalibur arm.The unique trough is a rigid curved piece with a bath containing viscous silicone fluid and associated with this is an extension piece attached to the end of the pick-up arm with a small paddle extending down. After the record is placed on the platter, the trough is swung over the record and the stylus is placed on the record and the paddle immerses in the trough fluid. 

Classic 4
Classic 4
$8,000
VPI took the design of the Classic 3, made it a little larger, and added an HR-X 12.7 arm as the primary and the Classic 3 arm as the seconadry arm for the debuing Classic 4! A secondary mounting with underbase has been placed between the arm rest and the arm lift to greatly improve the arm's rigidity literally making these the only arms that can do VTA adjustments while listening and then be locked as rigid as a solid mounted arm.  

Classic 3
Classic 3
$6,000
The Classic 3 features a ½" thick machined aluminum plinth bonded to a 1/8" steel sub plate, bonded to 2" of MDF creating a plinth which is so massive and well damped it virtually eliminates resonance.To maintain the amazing speed stability of the Classic design we include the extremely popular Periphery Ring Clamp and HR-X weight. New feet were designed for greater stability, better isolation, and a matching look to the larger chassis.

Classic 2
Classic 2 $3,500
Piano Black $3,700
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.

Classic 1
Classic 1 $2,800
Piano Black $3,000
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. 

Scout 1.1
The Scout 1.1
$2,000
For improved stability and damping, the Scout's chassis is made from 1 1/8" thick MDF bonded to a 12 gauge steel plate. The massive platter is composed of 1 3/8" acrylic and is mounted to an inverted bearing of Teflon and brass on a 60 Rockwell case hardened shaft. The 600 RPM AC synchronous motor is contained in a separate steel housing and drives the platter with smooth, quiet operation.

Scout II
The Scout II
$2,400
In only five years, the VPI Scout became the industry standard as the best-reviewed turntable on the planet! In 2009, we saw fit to bring some big improvements to its best-selling turntable. You may recognize the outboard motor and the plinth, but you will do a double take at the exquisite platter and tonearm.Every VPI Scout II comes standard with the JMW 9T! This incredible tonearm features a redesigned armtube that is tapered and filled with a proprietary damping material. This revolutionary design greatly reduces internal resonance, yielding a full and rich sound, with a vast soundstage and increased resolution and detail. The added mass also produces deeper bass response and fantastic compatibility with moving coil cartridges. 

Scoutmaster 2
The Scoutmaster 2 $2,700
The Scoutmaster combines key features from several of VPIs' most successful turntables. It uses the Aries 3 platter and inverted bearing, a larger version of the steel Scout motor assembly with fused IEC socket and 300-RPM 24 pole motor, and a dual Scout chassis with a steel center. The Scoutmaster comes with the JMW-9 standard or the 10.5i and as an option. The table stands 19" by 14" and weighs 48 pounds.

Aries 3
Aries 3 $4,000
The 1.75"-thick platter is comprised of non-resonant acrylic and incorporates an inverted bearing similar to that used in the HR-X. The bearing shaft is 60 Rockwell hardness, ground and polished, and the platter rotates on a Teflon/Delrin composit thrust plate for ultra low noise. The solid stainless steel motor assembly is almost 15 pounds and contains a smooth 300-RPM synchronous motor with Delrin motor pulley. This is a very low noise system with the fundamental resonance of the motor at 5 Hertz which is well below the frequency a cartridge can reproduce.
