Shinola’s first audio product is The Runwell Turntable, designed inside and out for the discriminating audiophile and easy to use by any music enthusiast. Featuring a built in phono preamplifier and a belt driven pulley with speeds of 33 1/3 rpm and 45rpm.
Shinola partnered with VPI founder Harry Weisfield and his son Mat Weisfeld (President of VPI), the premier American maker of turntables for 40 years.
After two years of work, blood, sweat, and tears our collaboration with Shinola has come to light,” said Mat Weisfeld, President of VPI Industries. “This has been a labor of love to create an easy to use high end product with the quality and performance of a VPI and with the style and dedication of a Shinola product. The shared value of both companies is love for an American Made product and opportunity for the American worker.”$2,500.00Runwell Turntable - 3 Colors AvailableBuy 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.
