TW Raven GT would be much better than VPI it does cost more but it would be your last TT.Look on Audiogon sometimes you see used TW tables.Enjoy!

Sounds like you are headed in the right direction with the Prime and since you own VPI now you have an idea of their ease of setup. I own a Prime, it was the cheapest way to get the 10inch 3D arm and have to say I am staying put with the Prime/SDS/perifial ring. Go ahead and purchase your Mint Best Protractor for setting the arm and enjoy your vinyl.
I currently run a classic 1 with a 10" memorial. I can say imo almost any table in the price range is going to show a noticable improvement all the way around a traveler, the prime is the bang for the buck table at vpi currently imo
I am considering a prime also and on that list is also the tw raven gt( used if i could find one they are pricey in comparison) and also the trans fi table from vic .
All three are very different beast. and the latter is a finiky tt but from what i hear sounds way out of its price range .Tough to hear the gt or the trans anywhere near me.I personnally would spend you max on the tt tonearm set up and upgrade a cart.later.
good luck any will outperform the traveler if set up properly
