New VPI Aries 3D turntable


Recommended Posts

Being a staple in the VPI product line, it was time for a facelift for the VPI Aries Turntable! 

 

Customers requested an option for a 12 inch 3D printed arm but with a reasonable footprint. The Aries 3D includes a Classic aluminium platter, periphery ring clamp, HR-X center weight, HR-X mini feet, and Classic 3D extended (12 inch) tonearm.

 

Available to order now at $14,995 (table and arm).

      Item Condition: Excellent Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available. Suburb or Town: Melbourne (Northern Suburbs) State: VIC Payment Method: Cash on Pickup/EFT Reason for selling: NLR Further information:
       
      For sale is my VPI Scout turntable with JMW9 tonearm, Dynavector 20x (VPI) MC cart and made to order acrylic cover.
       
      A great table that has plenty of positive reviews that highlights its price/performance ratio very much in favour of the consumer. The Dynavector 20x cart was custom made for VPI with 1mV output. It combines the speed of low output and richness and low noise of high output. It has been sparingly used by me so plenty of hours still left. The acrylic cover was made to order and still in great condition. Comes with the JMW memorial tonearm alignment jig and spare cart screws/screwdriver.
       
      All in all a great table setup! I am a fastidious person (read anal) with my audio equipment, so rest assured everything is in excellent condition.
       
      I still have the box but l am reluctant to shipat this stage as l think l will struggle on how to pack it all up safely. So local sale is preferred.

      Item Condition: Good Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Woodend State: VIC Payment Method: Cash or EFT Reason for selling: upgrading Further information:
      Originally purchased from another Stereonet member a few years ago.  I added the Phoenix Engineering PSU and roadrunner tachometer to lock in the speed stability (see the photos).  It comes with the VPI record clamp, some spare VPI belts, and some spare magnets for the tacho.  It does not have the anti-skate - could be added. It has the acrylic platter which some claim sounds better.  Its in good condition and also comes with a perspex cover that I had made for it when not in use. 
       
      The Lyra Delos Cartridge in the photos is NOT included.  If you want this it will cost $2600 extra - I intend to keep it and use it.
       
      Before anyone asks NO I will NOT separate the Phoenix engineering PSU and Tacho unless someone says they want the Aries without it.

      After a momentary power outages yesterday my Aries does not now appear to recognise my connected USB portable drive. When I access the addition settings menu the library setup option is available for a few seconds before disappearing to return again for another couple of seconds.
      When I attempt to setup an existing library the scan screen appears briefly before telling me there is an issue.
       
      Anyone experience anything along these lines?
       
      Cheers, Harry

      Two things I need help with. (im not a techie so looking for an expert to help).
       
      Firstly, I'm getting some hum coming from my turntable. I have identified that its coming from the left channel of the junction box (see photo) on my VPI Classic. It seems that the RCA connection is loosened so it might need tightening and resoldering inside.
       
      Is there someone in the Melbourne area that can come around and fix it (in-situ) at my home in inner city Melbourne. I dont really want to cart the turntable around town.
       
      Secondly, I need the same technician, who has experience with the VPI JMW memorial tone arm to tweak the cartridge set-up. Its going well, but I'm sure its not set up optimally so someone with expertise in both these areas who lives locally and willing to come around and do this would be great. Naturally, for the trouble, I'm happy to come up with mutually agreable arrangement in terms of payment.
       
      Many thanks -T

      Item: VPI TNT Mk 2 Turntable with SDS speed controller (reduced price)
      Location: Newcastle
      Price: $2500  (reduced from $3500)
      Item Condition: excellent; see notes
      Reason for selling: downsizing
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal
      Extra Info: 
      Note: This is a reduced-price offer of the turntable and controller only.  The tone arms and cartridges are optional extras.
       
      The TNT series, designed by VPI’s Harry Westfield, is well known for its ability to transform vinyl playback into something very special.  It presents with authority and weight, reveals the all-important midrange magic, and provides plenty of detail and air.  Ambiance retrieval from good vinyl with an accurate setup is excellent.  This TNT Mk 2 model displays all of these qualities.  The package includes the following:
       
      - Turntable, platter, motor, drive bands, and spring-loaded footers
      - VPI SDS speed controller (33 rpm only)
      - Tone arm board (this is reversible with two mounting holes, one for flush mounting and the other for elevated mounting)
      - VPI record clamp
      - replacement drive bands
      PRICE: $2500 (reduced from $3500)
       
      -  Audiomods Classic 2 Tonearm with adjustable VTA mounted with an Ortofon Bronze MM cartridge (as seen in photos) - additional $350
      -  Rega RB250 tonearm with Origin Live adapter, Origin Live VTA adjuster sleeve, with Clear Audio Aurum Beta S Wood MM cartridge - additional $200
       
       
      Note that this controller/motor/drive band combination does not have the torque to start the platter spinning.  A slight manual spin by the user, using the record clamp, is needed as you press the motor’s power button.  It takes only one second.  This solution has worked for many years and has helped preserve the motor.
       
      The turntable is available for a no-obligation audition at residence in Newcastle. Shipping to Australian destinations is possible at buyer’s cost.  Set up by an experienced enthusiast or professional is required.
