What else to know about the Prime?

VPI simultaneously returns to its high-end, high-performance roots and embraces cutting-edge technology with its striking Prime Signature turntable. Designed by Mat Weisfeld and overseen by VPI founder Harry Weisfeld, the *Hi-Fi+* Product of the Year Award-winning Prime Signature sports modern, curvaceous looks that wouldn't be out of place on an elite supercar. Most importantly, this state-of-the-art analog instrument delivers gorgeously transparent, grandly dynamic sound that reaps all the unique advantages offered by vinyl LPs – and then some. We're talking about intricate, physical details that place the instruments in the room. Warm, rich, luscious tonalities and vast openness that encourage you to spin record after record. Rhapsodic, front-to-back soundstaging that allows the musicians to appear feet away from your listening position. Dead-quiet black backgrounds, reference-grade imaging, and unshakable speed stability that nails the pacing, timing, and balance with spot-on precision. Fine-tunable, calibrated, "on-the-fly" VTA adjustments while your LP is playing to give you maximum information retrieval and convenience. The U.S.A.-made Prime Signature is an engineering revelation – and a conduit to gripping emotional satisfaction. In this age of experiences, Prime Signature will reward you with countless unforgettable musical adventures. Available with either a 3D-printed JMW 10-inch Reference unipivot tonearm with Nordost Reference wire or a VPI Fatboy 10-inch tonearm (Red Rose only, select from the drop-down menu above), Prime Signature comes loaded with features that directly impact fidelity and performance facets. Consider: A quiet, 300RPM 24-pole AC synchronous motor installed in a separate, aluminum-and-steel assembly for stunningly high torque. A MDF chassis bonded to an aluminum plate for extraordinary damping and resonance control. Classic Signature feet for unstinting support and four stainless-steel corner posts for mechanical grounding. Prime Signature also touts an inverted bearing with a hardened stainless-steel shaft and Rockwell chrome-hardened ball subbing in a phosphor bronze bushing, all sitting on a PEEK thrust disc. Further contributing to Prime Signature's premier sonics are the 20-pound aluminum platter (+/-0.001" accuracy in a 39-inch circumference) and customized motor pulley. You can also add VPI's standout ADS speed control and Periphery Outer Ring Clamp to Prime Signature at any time. For now, we just want you to hear everything this ‘table can do for your LP collection and your peace of mind.
