Stereophile Magazine's Analog Component of the Year!

**All Cartridges Installed Free Of Charge**

The only entry level high end turntable that is made in America!

The new entry high end level turntable featuring a new incredibly low friction in the spring loaded sapphire Gimballed bearings! This table was inspired and in memory of Sheila Weisfeld cofounder and owner of VPI Industries for 35 years.

The Traveler is the culmination of VPI refined engineering and technology providing quality sound and easy usability at a more affordable price.

"I can't imagine a happier way of listening to LPs than with the VPI Traveler. ...The Traveler isn't merely reasonably priced - it's a remarkable bargain, built to last a lifetime. And it's made with love, right here in the US."
- Stephen Mejias, Stereophile Magazine, November 2012, Vol. 35, No. 11

Positive Feedback - Mike Mercer

"...the Traveler's sound... had the confident, relaxed fluidity of open-reel tape. Whenever I've heard reel-to-reel tape, I've been impressed by the format's drama, impact, immediacy, presence, and, most of all, its seamless fluidity. Music simply flows into the listening room undisturbed, with no hint of mechanical edge or artifice. ...with the VPI Traveler leading my system, I wouldn't need a open-reel player: I could get a taste of that smooth, easy fluidity right from my LPs. "Intoxicating, almost magical," Indeed."
- Stephen Mejias, Stereophile Magazine, November 2012, Vol. 35, No. 11

"...the Traveler's more leisurely, deliberate way of making music - its smooth, easy sound and steady, confident pace - kept me listening longer, wanting and needing to listen to LP after LP after LP."

Review By Werner Richter

VPI Traveler

What a 'table!! When coupled with a moving COIL cartridge, (I used the dynavector 10x5) It had a very sweet sound at startup. I am a true believer in break-in periods so an update will follow. You WILL need to take your time setting this baby up. The packaging is first rate, which means unpack slowly!! The tonearm is separately packed with the turntable. As is the platter and associated hardware. Instructions that come with the unit is adequate, but is straightforward, read it first. You would benefit with a strong base for the Traveler as with ANY turntable. This Vpi has great feet and sticks well to any top. As the instructions spell out the installation process, I will skip to the sound. I use a separate phono preamp to connect the leads to. Use a ground wire to prevent hum between the traveller and the preamp. If your preamp has a dedicated phono input, make sure you know what type cartridge you are using. MM or MC and just plug in the leads. Caution! Balancing is
