The Re-Birth of the Scout!

Celebrating over 10 years in production! The Scout 1.1 is an upgrade from the previous version, featuring a new aluminum platter.

"Rather, this is a flat-out, unconditional, "Holy Mother of Crap, I can't believe how good this thing is" recommendation. It's hard to imagine another way of spending $****.** that will add this much to your system." - Art Dudley - Sterophile

“The scout brought a soundstage that was far more precisely defined. Bass was tighter, with less mud and boom. Treble was more extended and detail retrieval was clearly superior. Music, which was very entertaining and listenable on the *******, simply sounded clear on the scout. Insert your favorite cliché about “veil removal” and “inky-black backgrounds,” but that’s what it sounded like.” - Scott Hull TAS

The SCOUT has become the worlds best-reviewed turntable! The SCOUT is the lowest priced turntable in STEREOPHILE'S Class "B" and has attained high performance records worldwide.

The Scout 1.1 Turntable with a new version of the iconic 9” JMW Tonearm and new aluminum platter is a world standard at its $2,000 price.

Reviews:
"The thing that impressed me most about the Scout was its effervescent character. Perhaps its low mass and acrylic platter are responsible for the sense that it just wants to boogie. While the less expensive 'table doesn't convey a feeling of grandeur like the HR-X, which does a magnificent job of conveying hall space, I couldn't help feeling that the Scout might be nimbler than it big brother. The notes just popped out of it with no sense of delay."
- Jacob Heillbrunn, The Absolute Sound, June/July 2007, Issue 172

"What the Scout does show, however, it that, yes, more costly innovations are indeed filtering down to budget 'tables. The result is that audiophiles have more options than ever before. And without a doubt, the Scout is a fabulous one."
- Jacob Heillbrunn, The Absolute Sound, June/July 2007, Issue 172

VPI Knows What They're Doing

First of all thanks to Seth from Soundstage Direct. He was an incredible resource as my sales consultant. Seth had to put up with my crazy indecision. But he didn't blow a gasket and guided me to getting the best turntable I've owned.

I've had a few different Technics, a Rega RP6 and a Pro-Ject RM 5.1 SE. The Scout 1.1 is a much better turntable without a doubt. The sound this table produces will have you tapping your toes and smiling.

If you are thinking of buying a Scout 1.1, just stop thinking and buy it. You will not regret it. And buy it from Soundstage Direct. This company aims to please and they hit the mark.
