This is a near-mint VPI Classic 3 'table, featuring a JMW Memorial Tonearm and a brand new VPI Branded Grado Gold Phono Cartridge.

This listing includes the official VPI metal tonearm calibration tool, as well as the anti-skate mechanism and record clamp (not pictured).

Working perfectly, and looking near mint all around.

Weighing in at close to 60 lbs, this is a well built table. The platter alone is nearly 3" thick! We'll mount and calibrate the Grado Gold phono cartridge prior to shipping. You can also provide your own cartridge and we'll professionally prepare it for you on this 'table at no cost (about a two hour process).

We have all the original and very high quality VPI packaging, so this piece should travel safely anywhere in the world. VPI sold this for $6700 MSRP including the cartridge.

This table was purchased by the original owner from us around 2014.

"It is a work of art, Harry Weisfeld's best. Amen! Five Stars." - Harry Pearson 

The Classic line pays homage to the great turntables of the past that have been synonymous with state of the art turntable design. The Classic has been the best selling turntable VPI has ever made and is still outselling production. The sales and rave reviews from around the world are based on the glorious sound and the incredible speed stability, speed stability normally associated with $10K plus designs. Our top of the line Classic 3 represents a significant step forward in both performance and aesthetics pushing the envelope as far as we can to deliver the best sounding turntable VPI has ever made.

The Classic 3 features a ½" thick machined aluminum plinth bonded to a 1/8" steel sub plate, bonded to 2" of MDF creating a plinth which is so massive and well damped it virtually eliminates resonance.

For the Classic 3 we updated the arm with a new stainless steel arm-tube, bearing assembly, base mounting, and Nordost Valhalla wiring from cartridge to RCA (or XLR) output jacks.

To maintain the amazing speed stability of the Classic design we include the extremely popular Periphery Ring Clamp and HR-X weight. New feet were designed for greater stability, better isolation, and a matching look to the larger chassis.

To complete the visual aesthetic of this state of the art design, we chose a deep Piano Black finish to perfectly counterpoint the silvery sheen of the top section. Gorgeous and glorious, the Classic 3 is an absolute triumph!

Manufacturers who have received there Classic 3 are using adjectives like "Gorgeous", "Quietest table I've ever heard", "How could it be so inexpensive", "Speed stability like my digital masters".

VPI Classic Turntable Features:

A large knurled VTA tower with a smooth precise feel makes it easy to set VTA during play.

A secondary mounting with underbase has been placed between the arm rest and the arm lift to greatly improve the arm's rigidity literally making these the only arms that can do VTA adjustments while listening and then be locked as rigid as a solid mounted arm.

JMW-Classic 3 damped stainless steel tonearm

New investment machined aluminum high inertia platter with precision inverted bearing.

Speed stability on par with a master tape: Due to the rigid mounting of motor - platter - tonearm there isn't any random motion to cause speed instabilities.

Noise rejection that lets the Classic Turntable sit near four 15" subwoofers and having virtually no feedback

Lack of random motion between the motor, platter, and tonearm giving the ultimate in low level resolution. Not only does this rigidity improve speed stability, it also allows the retrievel of low level information with the world's great turntables and pushing against master tapes.

Absolutely solid, non-resonating laminated one-piece chassis: This is not a wooden frame; it is a solid laminated 2.5" thick MDF block with 11 gauge steel attached to the top with silicone and long bolts through all the layers. The chassis weighs 30 pounds and is totally non-resonant.

RCA jack termination so you can use the interconnect of your choice.
