VPI Prime 21 Turntable with JMW 10 3D Gimbaled Tonearm
Upscale Audio is the only VPI dealer in California that is VPI Trained & Certified to handle all of your VPI needs!
VPI listened to you and engineered a number of refinements into the award-winning Prime, offering a facelift and sonic improvement for 2021
With a fresh look, improved isolation, improved resonance cancellation, and a focus on gimbal tonearms, the VPI Prime 21 is also available in a package as the Prime 21+. The 21+ offers a mounted Shyla cartridge ($1,750), and Weisline phono cable ($700), but instead of selling for $6,950, you save $450.
As with the Prime, the Prime 21 and 21+ ship with a stainless-steel/Delrin record clamp.
Upgrades over Prime
- HW-40 feet for improved isolation and a lower table profile
- Machined metal top plate for improved chassis bracing
- 3D-printed gimbal arm as standard (unipivot can be requested at no price difference)
The HW-40 feet have proven to be VPI's best isolators without breaking the bank, the lower profile also makes the table look cleaner, and is easier to fit into a shelf.
Moving the bottom plate to the top and adding more metal to wrap around the posts braces and makes the chassis more rigid. Grounding is better since all assemblies are mounted to that metal top plate.
