VPI HR-X Turntable With JMW 12.7 Tonearm

Golden Ear Award-Winning and U.S.-Made VPI HR-X Turntable With JMW 12.7 Tonearm Delivers Explosive Dynamics, Pinpoint Accuracy, and Phenomenal Detail

Explosively dynamic, supremely musical, incredibly accurate, and infinitely adjustable: The VPI HR-X turntable just might be the last ‘table you ever purchase. A winner of a Golden Ear Award from The Absolute Sound, the U.S.A.-made HR-X runs on an inverted bearing and features an acrylic platter cut to tolerances within five ten-thousandths of an inch (we can't even imagine the microscopic detail involved). This reference-caliber component also includes the LP-flattening VPI outer ring clamp. It also comes backed by our 60-Day Satisfaction Guarantee.

Plus, there's more. A superb-sounding JMW 12.7 tonearm is directly mounted to the plinth for added rigidity, giving HR-X increased speed, wowing dynamics, supreme bass definition, and inimitable musicality. As for what's inside? Two ultra-low-powered motors drive a seven-pound, center-mounted flywheel that spins at 300RPM. Get ready for analog bliss!

No Stone Left Unturned on Reference Design
Every aspect of HR-X is optimized for maximum performance. The acrylic platter is cut to tolerances within five thousandths of an inch and sits on an inverted bearing for lower noise and lower rotational inertia. The JMW 12.7 tonearm is mounted directly to the HR-X plinth for exceptional rigidity. The HR-X drive system consists of two ultra-low powered motors on either side of a seven-pound, center-mounted flywheel that spins at 500RPM.
“Harry Weisfeld can’t stop upgrading this combination and each generation is just a bit better. Total reliability and consistency. Amazing detail without any loss of warmth and deep bass. Not a trace of wow and flutter or bearing noise. An arm that works superbly with any modern moving coil or moving magnet cartridge.”
- Anthony Cordesman, The Absolute Sound, Golden Ear Award
 
Triple-Layered Plinth
VPI HR-X's triple-layered X-shaped plinth has a gorgeous, glossy black finish with aluminum accents, an air bearing suspension, an ingenious motor and flywheel combo, and arrives equipped with VPI's phenomenal tonearm, JMW 12.7. Amazingly, HR-X only takes up 25” x 19” of space.
 
"What you get with the VPI TNT HR-X, however, is as close to the sound of silence I have yet heard. This is not just a matter of the best signal-to-noise ratio I have ever heard from an analog front end. There is an amazing lack of low-level coloration to the sound." 
- Anthony Cordesman, The Absolute Sound, Product of the Year Award
Features:
  • Triple-laminated chassis (Acrylic-Aluminum-Acrylic) is heavy, rigid, and critically damped. Each layer is machined separately and then assembled before being combined with the corner assemblies to produce a uniformly aligned system.
  • Stainless-steel HR-X center weight.
  • 40-pound separate machined drive system uses two low-powered 24-pole 300RPM AC synchronous motors driving a 12-pound flywheel.  The drive unit is machined from a solid block of aluminum, its accuracy assured by using only one piece, giving the lowest-possible wow and flutter from a belt drive.
  • Flywheel spins at 300RPM and has 62 times the inertia of a 25-pound platter.
  • The combination of flywheel drive system, inverted bearing, and accuracy of machining leads to extremely low levels of wow, flutter, rumble, and FM distortion.
  • The isolation system built into the feet allow it to be placed very close to 4 -15” woofers with no noticeable effect.
