The VPI Cliffwood Turntable featuring an Aluminum Platter, 600rpm Motor, 9" Gimbaled tonearm, VPI/Grado Green Cartridge & Cliffwood MM Phono Preamp!
For 40 years VPI has built turntables in America and kept it in the VPI family. For almost 30 of those years VPI has built their turntables in Cliffwood, New Jersey. With VPI reaching a more entry level market they are still able to make their products in Cliffwood, New Jersey. Most companies when making entry level products source their components outside their country of origin. This is why VPI is celebrating their heritage and own VPI workers by naming this turntable after the place they are built!
VPI is also excited to be teaming up with their friends from Brooklyn, New York, Grado Labs! VPI engineered a cartridge shell specifically for the Grado to make it easier to mount and contribute to the sound signature. The VPI/Grado Green will be the factory standard mounted cartridge on all VPI Cliffwood turntables.
The tonearm is a 9" machined aluminum gimbal both easy and robust to use while providing top level sonic performance.
The VPI Cliffwood MM Phono Preamplifier is mainly designed to get music listeners equipped with a turntable into entry-level high-end analog in fast, simple fashion. Proudly built in the U.S.A., the Cliffwood MM Phono Preamp features the same electronics inside the VPI Player turntable and functions as an ideal companion to the VPI Cliffwood turntable. When paired with the latter, you'll have instant access to detailed, warm, and dynamic vinyl playback and none of the hassles that come with set up or equipment matching. This low-noise, op-amp component also includes a regulated linear power supply to ensure accurate, clear sound. With the VPI Cliffwood MM Phono Preamplifier in tow, you're mere steps away from discovering all the unique pleasures of LP playback.
