The VPI Avenger table was originally a project started by Harry over 12 years ago. In the process of the design, the project was dropped in mid-production due to excessive demand by HR-X customers which left the design and proto-type chassis to be mothballed. The good news about the abandoned design is Harry instead shifted his focus into starting and completing the VPI Classic Turntable.
Shortly after the development of the Prime, and while cleaning out the warehouse in preparation for a dealer training event, the forgotten Avenger and its designs were re-discovered! The working name was the "Tri-Pod Project". Being newly motivated, Harry has finally put in motion the table that will be his masterpiece!
The Avenger chassis is three layers of bonded acrylic/aluminum/acrylic with damping material between layers. 3 stainless steel corner posts for both isolation and tonearm mounting and for mechanical grounding (up to 3 will fit). The 300 RPM, 24 pole, AC synchronous motor is capable of high torque and quiet operation. The motor is installed in a separate aluminum and steel machined assembly The Inverted bearing features a hardened stainless steel shaft, 60 Rockwell chrome hardened ball, spinning in a phosphor bronze bushing and sits on a PEEK thrust disc. The belt side load is placed at the center of the spinning bearing for zero teeter-totter effects The 20 pound 6061 aluminum platter has an accuracy of +/- .001” in a 39” circumference The motor pulley has an accuracy of +/- .0005” when leaving factory JMW 12-3D with VPI pure copper wire.
