"By getting out of the way entirely, the VPI Prime simply let the cartridge do its intended job. Most other turntables make this music ‘fall’ out of the speakers, but with the VPI it just sang!" - Alan Sircom, HiFi +
The past 3 years VPI has been focusing mainly on new/entry level audiophiles and getting them to embrace vinyl for the first time. With the Prime we wanted to get back to our roots and focus on the existing audience with a table that offers quality hi-end sound while taking advantage of our improvements in technology. Also, it was important to show the industry that we will still be making new turntable and designs whether Harry is in the factory or poolside! The Prime is Mat Weisfeld's first solo design on a table with Harry's approval as well as input from the rest of the VPI staff. The shape of the Prime is meant to have a curvier and sexy look compared to the "classic" look of our tables over the past 10 years. At same time having the footprint to accommodate the space needed for a 10 inch 3D arm.$5,999.00VPI Prime Signature Turntable - No CartridgeBuy Now
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.
