High Notes

World's Best Reviewed Turntable

The original VPI Scout received more positive reviews than any table near its price. Now improved and the least expensive Class B Stereophile rated table, the Scout is a steal and simple to set up. Just be ready to lift something heavy as it weighs in at 54 pounds in the box!

JMW Uni-Pivot Tonearm

A truly classic tonearm from VPI; the JMW unipivot is fully adjustable for precise cartridge alignment.

Options to Fully Upgrade

You'll have a hard time outgrowing your Scout with the ability to improve to the Prime Platter, VTA on the Fly, Stainless Steel Counterweight, 3D printed arm, and external ADS drive system.

  • The 600 RPM AC synchronous motor is contained in a separate steel housing and drives the platter with smooth, quiet operation.
  • The tonearm wand assembly of the JMW-9 can be removed and replaced in seconds. 
  • The Scout's chassis is made from 1-1/8" thick MDF bonded to a 12 gauge steel plate.
