    The Shirelles and King Curtis Give a Twist Party

    In 1962, the twist was EVERYWHERE. Artists from Joey Dee to Frank Sinatra (?!) were all chasing the craze, feverishly recording twist-able platters to meet the dance floor demand. Saxophone great King Curtis didn't sleep on the trend, scoring a major hit with "Soul Twist" along with several other twist-themed singles. Thus, it was only natural that he should team up with the country's #1 girl group, The Shirelles, themselves in the middle of an incredible run of chart-topping singles. This inspired pairing resulted in the Shirelles' second LP release of 1962, The Shirelles and King Curtis Give a Twist Party.


    And what a party it is! The album's eleven tracks mix scorching instrumentals with vocal numbers, never once stopping for air. Curtis' gritty sax tone combines with The Shirelles' dulcet harmonies for a one-of-a-kind sound that will have everyone in the house on their feet, wearing through shoe leather. Sourced from the original Scepter analog master, this Sundazed reissue is destined to become a "go to" LP for your next soirÉe. Because when The Shirelles and King Curtis Give a Twist Party, the only acceptable RSVP is YES!!!"

    With Ortofon 2M Red


    The most-wanted audiophile design turntable with carbon tonearm, 3 speeds and DC power supply!


    The new DEBUT CARBON ESPRIT SB (DC) has been designed to set new standards in this category for the coming decade - perfectly timed as analogue today is again a respected source, while the demand for good turntables with all speeds is growing fast!


    The CARBON TUBE for the tonearm increases stiffness and decreases unwanted resonance. This material normally is extensively used in high end tonearms, but - because of cost reasons - was never used in products at lower price levels. Together with other improvements like an increase in platter size and weight to realize even smoother rotation, the overall sound quality is greatly improved.
    The approved belt drive design offers low noise AC motor with effective motor decoupling (utilising TPE), ultra precision frequency DC-driven AC generator for ultimate speed stability.


    Ultimate convenience is achieved, because of electronic speed change (Speed Box) and the possibility of playing 78rpm. A simple exchange of stylus to 2M78 (not included) and a drive belt turnover to larger diameter of pulley is required, that's all!

    Crosscheck Level

    VPI


    Leveling a turntable is essential to ensure proper performance. The platter's constant speed, cartridge's tracking ability and the tonearm's smooth motion can all be affected if the turntable isn't level.


    VPI's Crosscheck Turntable Level is an effective, easy to use level, perfect for turntables. The Crosscheck Level allows two axis to be checked simultaneously, making leveling a quick and simple task. The Crosscheck Level's small form factor allows quick measurements to be taken anywhere; on the platter, on the plinth, even on the shelf itself.

    Periphery Ring Clamp


    The Periphery Ring Clamp greatly improves the performance of VPI turntables by flattening the outer edges of LPs, increasing the cartridge's tracking ability, removing resonance and aiding detail retrieval. A massive ring designed to sit just outside the lead-in groove, the Periphery Ring Clamp's weight flattens the record onto the platter, eliminating edge warps and more completely coupling the record to the platter.


    Scout, Aries 1 & 2, HW-19 & older TNT owners will need to purchase the HRX platter and bearing in order to use the Periphery Ring Clamp. Due to bearing height differences between the VPI models, please give us a call if you'd like to upgrade these components and we'll help you get the right bearing for your turntable.

    Standard Black Delrin Clamp



    Standard equipment on VPI's Scout series turntables, the Standard Delrin Clamp does an excellent job of reducing the effects of external vibration from interacting with the stylus. This improves focus and pacing, adding weight and power to the sonic presentation.


    Using the Standard Delrin Clamp, can also help reduce (and in some cases eliminate) record warpage and create a much tighter seal between the record and the turntable platter. The clamp essentially locks the record to the platter, reducing vibration typically picked up by the cartridge that colors the sound.

    Outstanding performance from a compact and luxurious turntable configuration


    The 2Xperience SB is based on the 2Xperience belt-drive concept which incorporates over 20 years of turntable design experience. The addition of a precision motor controller with electronic speed change, derived from the highly regarded Speed Box yields precise speed accuracy and push button convenience. The superb 9cc Evolution carbon fiber tonearm provides superb performance especially with the factory mounted Sumiko Blue Point No. 2 cartridge, while serving as a solid foundation for future upgrades. The heavy chassis is made from MDF using a non-resonant construction technique.


    The mat is created from a recycled vinyl record bonded to the platter and precision machined to create an ideal turntable/record interface. A custom light-weight record clamp reduces unwanted record vibration and ensures a tight coupling of the record to the platter. The audio performance of the final product benefits from the resonance-free platter, avoiding the ringing effect of common metal and glass platters. Available in a variety of beautiful finishes, the 2Xperience SB looks as good as it sounds and with the highly regarded Blue Point No. 2 included, represents a superb value.

    Have a question about this product? Please email our audio advisor or call 1-877-929-8729 with any questions or concerns regarding your equipment purchase.


    The starter turntable of choice for audiophiles the world over!


    The new Essential III builds on the successes of the Essential II. The Essential II is a fabulous sounding turntable. It's the least expensive turntable on the market that includes both a high precision main bearing and a solid, adjustable tonearm that's based on the award winning Debut design. It's become the starter turntable of choice for audiophiles the world over.


    The new Essential III adds some nice upgrades compared to the Essential II. Cosmetically, the Essential III takes a cue from the award winning Debut Carbon DC, with a lustrous high-gloss finish that's available in Black, Red, or White. The platter also gets an upgrade: it's constructed of a dense MDF for minimal resonance and finished in a high-gloss piano black. The visual effect is striking, especially on the Red and White tables where the high-gloss platter contrasts nicely with the plinth. It looks really spectacular if you display it with some fun colored vinyl to accentuate the colors! The adjustable 8.6" one-piece aluminum tonearm is significantly more sophisticated than anything close to its price range, and utilizes sapphire bearings for minimal friction and many years of reliable performance. The Essential III also includes a factory mounted/aligned Ortofon OM10 cartridge. You won't find a better performing, better matched cartridge/tonearm combination in this price range.


    The main platter bearing is precision machined high grade stainless steel and the drive pulley is crafted from aluminum. A new DC motor speed controller board regulates the platter speed and the Essential III now includes Connect it E interconnect hardwired directly to the output.


    *Not compatible with Speed Box S or Speed Box DS.

    High-end audiophile turntable with fully adjustable 12 S-shaped tonearm, dampened sub-chassis, continuous speed control, and mass-loaded plinth


    The Signature turntable is Pro-Ject's all-out assault on the analog high-end.

The main plinth also houses the touch screen that allows control of all operational parameters and variable speed adjustment. The second plinth is made of aluminum sits beneath the platter and is responsible for supporting the magnetic suspension. Sorbothane Pillows isolate the entire assembly and further reduce unwanted disturbances and vibration. The flywheel belt-drive system employs two motors and ensures vibration and noise-free mechanical operation for all moving parts.


    The advanced single-pivot 12 tonearm can accommodate virtually any cartridge due to its wide range of adjustment possibilities and selection of different counterweights. It is even possible to adjust the VTA while the record is playing!

    **All Cartridges Installed Free Of Charge**


    The Scout 2 features a 1 7/8 thick aluminum platter (with a stainless steel damping plate) in place of the Scout's 1 3/8 acrylic platter.


    The result of mating a great platter to a simple good looking design! In only seven years, the VPI Scout has become the industry standard as the best-reviewed turntable on the planet! For 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.


    For maximum stability and speed accuracy the platter is made from 1 7/8 thick machined 6061 aluminum and is attached to a nonmagnetic 303 stainless steel damping plate. The entire piece weighs in at an impressive 18 pounds! Because the aluminum is grounded to the steel, there is virtually no static buildup or sonic degradation. What's in the grooves is what comes out of your speakers.


    The VPI Scout II's plinth is made from 1 1/8 thick MDF bonded to a 12 gauge steel plate giving a rigid, non-resonant plinth. The massive platter sits on chrome-hardened ball bearing held by a 60 Rockwell-hardened shaft, below which is a black delrin nut.


    The VPI Scout II generates absolutely no additional noise for a pristinely quiet spin. The AC synchronous motor is contained in a separate steel housing and drives the platter via an Aries belt. This combination produces quiet yet stable running with extremely accurate speed. Speeds are 33 and 45 standard, while 78 is optional.

    Inspiration Information

    This beautiful Shuggie Otis album went largely overlooked at the time of its release in 1974. Which is a shame, because it's one of those albums that you hear new things in every time it's on the platter. Shuggie played every instrument himself here, giving us a look into his psyche: soothing, subtle, harmonious and elegantly funky. Some say the album is ahead of its time - so much so it would t into the Trip Hop genre with ease. We'll let you decide. All we know is we can't stop playing it!
