Further information:

Up for sale the latest release of famous Prime model: VPI Prime 21 which made VPI known as one of the best performance turntable per dollar on the market, dynamic, explosive and accurate are my picks with American handsome looking. VPI offers high-end performance in reasonable package price.

 

 

VPI Speed Controller ADS Drive is a must upgrade, using a class AB circuit with isolation transformer to generate stable current to provide constant speed, the motor speed is more statable and more immunity to voltage fluctuation of home electric (better speed, aka better timing , aka better performance in analog setup). The class AB circuit of isolation transformer also reduces harmonic kickback from spinning motors which is the secret sauces in high-end turntable design. VPI makes those feature accessible as an upgrade option instead of built-in to turntable package.

 

 

I am first owner, Prime 21 was purchased from authorised Australian distributor Krispy Audio in April 2021. All VPI Turntable and parts have three years manufacture warranty, so rest assure you are in a  good hand.
