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.$4,200.00Scout 2 - Classic Signature ArmBuy 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.
