VPI’s new­est en­try-level turntable, the VPI Player, which takes over from the VPI No­mad and comes with a car­tridge, a built-in phono stage and a built-in head­phone am­pli­fier, has in­creased in price, to $2,395. The VPI Player has an alu­minium plat­ter, which ro­tates on an oil bath bear­ing with a PEEK thrust disc and ma­chined graphite im­preg­nated brass bush­ings us­ing a Thomp­son En­gi­neer­ing 60 Rock­well case hard­ened shaft. The plat­ter is belt-driven by a 24V syn­chro­nous a.c. mo­tor. The phono stage was specif­i­cally de­signed for the Orto­fon 2M Red phono car­tridge that’s pre-mounted in ton­earm. The head­phone am­pli­fier has its own vol­ume con­trol, so you can plug a pair of head­phones di­rectly into the turntable, and lis­ten direct from vinyl. The VPI Player turntable is avail­able in two finishes: Hard Rock Maple and Mocha Wal­nut and sells for $2,395.
