VPI has never made a more musical and involving turntable at such a bargain price. Consider the Scoutmaster a Scout with a shot of testosterone for a more complete musical experience.
For improved stability and damping, the Scoutmaster's chassis is made from two 1 1/8" thick MDF sandwiched between a 12 gauge steel plate giving a more rigid, non-resonant plinth. The HRX platter is 1 7/8" thick of finely machined Acrylic and has a largerdiameter than all previous VPI platters. This improves speed stability and allows for the use of the New HRX Stainless Steel Outer Periphery Ring Record Clamp.
The Black Knight solid aluminum motor assembly with a new fused IEC socket with new 300-rpm motor is contained in a separate steel housing and drives the platter via an Aries belt, speeds are 33 and 45 standard, 78 is optional. This combination gives quiet, yet stable running with accurate speed.
VPI's Scoutmaster turntable is in every way, shape and form, simply a stunning accomplishment. Don't be fooled by the 'table's diminutive 19 x 14-inch footprint. Don't be fooled by its lack of bells and whistles. Don't be fooled by its price. This muscular and compact 48 lb. package is a heavyweight contender in every sense of the word. The Scoutmaster could be the ultimate - and even last turntable--for many analog music lovers.
