The Prime Signature is the next step up from the Prime, which took the world by storm 2 years ago during its initial release. It features an upgraded VPI Fatboy Tonearm Armwand resulting in better sonics, a 3D printed armtube with new triangular to circular resonance canceling taper, Nordost Reference wiring and easier, high-precision counterweight adjustment. The chassis consists of an aluminum plate sandwiched between a composite material for improved dampening. Due to the additional weight of the table, VPI has upgraded the feet to their Classic Signature feet. In addition, both the motor housing and all Delrin posts and armboards were upgraded to a heftier stainless steel.

Looks like VPI has another winner on its hands, and the Prime Signature comes very highly recommended indeed!
- Alan Sircom, HiFi +
It takes everything the standard model does and builds on it. There's more insight, stronger dynamics and a lovely stability.
- What HiFi
Solid as a rock, oozing detail but blended successfully with clarity. All I can advise, in my simple, innocent, yet hopeful way is to tell you to buy this deck.

Ask them to play that Dead record on their VPI Prime Signature turntable... flat out stunning.

Achieve Sonic Superiority, Increased Dynamics, Deeper Bass, Tighter Midrange, Lifelike Highs, the Fatboy is a Significant Upgrade from VPI!

The VPI Fatboy Tonearm Armwand features better sonics, a 3D printed armtube with new triangular to circular resonance canceling taper, Nordost Reference wiring and easier, high-precision counterweight adjustment! The VPI Fatboy Tonearm Armwand offers the perfect balance of precision and fine tune adjustments. Featuring even more detail, superior soundstage, low resonance and excellent musicality, the Fatboy greatly improves the overall sound of your VPI table!

The Fatboy adds a new level adjustment to the VPI-type tonearm. On the Unipivot version, you can adjust azimuth using the side arm tube setscrews, the adjustable side weights...By having the combination of a 3D printed-tube with the finely machined back-stock, it creates the perfect balance of precision and balance for your tonearm. The fine adjustable counterweight makes cartridge set-up easier than ever.
