roksponsmallAs the demand for vinyl grows at an extraordinary pace, the VPI team continues to develop its turntables to produce, they say, “a revelatory level of audio reproduction”. After the success of their award-winning Prime, VPI has launched the new Prime Signature turntable.

This new super table is the result of VPI’s thirty-five years of audio design know-how and has been lovingly engineered in New Jersey. The all new Prime Signature is part of an evolution of turntables from the US masters of vinyl replay. VPI wanted to get back to their roots with the Prime series by creating tables that offer quality high-end sound while taking advantage of improvements in technology.vpi_prime-signature_turntable_hifi_news_dec_2016-hi-res_ol1


Backed by VPI’s improved abilities with 3D printing and design, the Prime Signature features a black speckled gloss finish JMW 3D 10 Reference arm with a Nordost Reference wire. The plinth is composed of layered gloss MDF and machined aluminium together with a stainless-steel motor housing, corner posts, bearing nut bell and arm board. The Prime Signature rests upon custom-designed HR-X (Hot Rod Extra) isolation feet.The Prime Signature improves upon the VPI Prime by featuring improved bracing in the main bearing and arm through the aluminium sandwich construction of the plinth and improved mechanical grounding. There is better resonance damping of the motor as the stainless-steel housing weighs twice that of the of the original Prime. The new tonearm also delivers better aesthetics and damping.

VPI has of course not forgotten that there is a simple and beautiful tactile joy of playing vinyl – press the start button, move the tone arm into position and then lower it using the lever. The needle will then softly drop into the groove and the VPI Prime Signature performance will begin.

RRP: £6,000

The Prime has been designed to have a curvier and more attractive appearance than other turntables and yet has the footprint to accommodate a 10 inch 3D printed tone arm. The Prime…
