Re-introducing the audio world to the best-selling VPI table of all time - better than the old one, better than it should be at this price! The Scout has become one of the world's best-reviewed turntable! The Scout is so simple to set-up, you can have the table up and running in just minutes. The sound is fast and detailed, deep and wide with a natural midrange worthy of the world's finest cartridges. And one of the easiest tables to upgrade! The VPI Scout has become the worlds best-reviewed turntable! The Scout is the lowest priced turntable in Stereophile's Class B and has attained high performance records worldwide! For improved stability and damping, the Scout's chassis is made from 1 1/8" thick MDF bonded to a 12 gauge steel plate giving a rigid, non-resonant plinth. The AC synchronous motor is contained in a separate steel housing and drives the platter via an Aries belt, speeds are 33 and 45 standard. This combination gives quiet, yet stable running with accurate speed.

The Scout with its outboard motor is rock-solid and provides excellent speed control. Sound quality is disconcertingly good for the money. It is not necessarily an entry-level 'table at this price' nonetheles, you can and probably will (at some point), spend far more and get less. The challenge you'll find, however, is to spend more and actually get a significantly better-sounding turntable. It's not as easy as it sounds - which is precisely why it is a TAS Product of the Year
-Scot Hull, The Absolute Sound, July/August 2013, Issue 234
The scout brought a soundstage that was far more precisely defined. Bass was tighter, with less mud and boom. Treble was more extended and detail retrieval was clearly superior. Music, which was very entertaining and listenable on the *******, simply sounded clear on the scout. Insert your favorite cliché about "veil removal" and "inky-black backgrounds," but that's what it sounded like.
-Scott Hull TAS
Rather, this is a flat-out, unconditional, "Holy Mother of Crap, I can't believe how good this thing is" recommendation. It's hard to imagine another way of spending $ that will add this much to your system.
-Art Dudley, Stereophile
