I have had 3 VPI tables and currently have a Prime. I had an original Scout and the new Scout Prime is a huge upgrade. The VPI tables are reliable, heavy and sound excellent on all types of music. I will admit I am not a fan of a turntable whose arm uses a fishing line and a golf ball in the design. Reminds me of a home brew garage project. I wonder if the Titleist golf ball sounds better than another brand of golf ball?
The VPI is a table you can use for 20 or 30 years and then pass it down to another family member where it will keep on working.
