"The Classic 4 is a precision measuring device in its own right; as well as telling you what’s in your records’ grooves, it will also tell you just how competent your setup is." - Roy Gregory
The Classic 4 is really, chief designer and former co-owner, Harry Weisfeld's table. He didn't design this table for the consumer, he designed it for his own personal us so he could listen to a 12 inch arm on a Classic table (Classic 1-3 do not have the space to properly mount a 12 inch arm.) We presented the table at the 2012 New York Audio Show to make a statement while also announcing the VPI Traveler. It wasn't intended to bring into the VPI line but the positive feedback and interest immediately made it a staple in the production line.
Identical build as the Classic 3 but with a larger size chassis, plus having a 12 inch arm gives you more stability, lower tracking distortion, and additional low level resolution from your records. Having the additional size gives the listener a chance to mount a second 10 or 12 inch tone arm in the rear. Why would you have two arms? This lets you have both a stereo and mono cartridge set up at the same time.
The Classic 4 features a ˝" thick machined aluminum plinth bonded to a 1/8" steel sub plate with dampening fabric in between. This is then bonded to 2" of MDF creating a plinth which is so massive and well damped it virtually eliminates resonance. The Classic 4 can use either an extended Classic Signature arm or an extended Classic 3D arm.
The custom nature of this table comes from the numerous options you have. You can mount 1 or 2 tonearms, 10” or 12” arms, any arm made by almost anyone, it is all customizable and affordable.

Wood-encases ferrous metal blocks the DB-5s were designed to absorb stray electromagnetic radiation from electronic components. >From there Weisfeld developed VPI manufacturing bases for both the Denon and JVC direct drive motors. As VPI Industries continued to experience much success the HW-19 turntable was introduced, quickly followed by the MK2, the MK3 and then the MK4. By 1985 Weisfeld had introduced It was the TNT Turntable and the PLC, or "power line conditioner". As time went by, Weisfeld quickly became aware of the demand for a state-of-the-art turntable for something less than a state-of-the-staggering price. Inspired by this promise, VPI turntables rapidly replaced the competition, becoming the new industry standard for high-end performance at an affordable price.
After the unexpected death of their oldest son Jonathan in a horrible auto accident in 1995, Weisfeld once again took his passion for audio and introduces the “JMW Memorial Tonearm” tonearm, a project that he and his son had been working on prior to his death.
A percentage of every tonearm that is sold is put into the "Jonathan Weisfeld Memorial Fund" with the funds being used to further Arts and Music.
Dedicated to constantly creating new opportunities to catapult us into new business areas and manufacturing, VPI Industries increased sales with the introduction of the VPI Aries, the Scout, the Scoutmaster, the Classic 1, 2, 3, and 4, and the Classic Direct. The VPI Classic series has become some of the most popular additions to the VPI family.
