In the world of luxury turntables we recommend the award winning, American made VPI Traveler. At $1500 the Traveler is a marvel of engineering from the VPI team, makers of great turntables for the last 35 years. You’ll not find a better combination of tonearm bearings, speed stability, and isolation in this price range.
Stereophile honored the Traveler by including it in its “Recommended Components” list for 2013, saying: “The Traveler combined delicate highs, a clean midrange, outstanding low-end control, and awesomely silent backgrounds with overall ease and fluidity.” Audio Advice can help you pick the right cartridge to complete your Traveler. (And with any turntable purchase, set up and calibration in the store is absolutely free.)
