Classic Turntable - The Muscle Car of Audio
“The Classic, in my opinion, exceeds the performance of [VPI’s] ScoutMaster series and breaks new sonic ground… at a breathtakingly low price. I think this is Weisfeld’s best sounding design. If ever there were a best buy in ‘tables, this is it!”
– Harry Pearson, The Absolute Sound, Golden Ear Award Issue, June/July 2009
I’ve unboxed too many $3,000 turntables that my dog could chew to bits in a matter of seconds. VPI’s robust construction puts any such fears to rest. Price be damned, the Classic is one of the most engaging turntables I’ve had the pleasure to use.
– Jeff Dorgay, Tone Audio, 2012
The VPI’s exact PRaT, the rise times of transients and their sudden stops generated a very lively 'no fat' presentation that didn’t linger but appeared explosive and fit. In the bass, the degree of definition, speed and grip were arguably class leading for this price range. It really was marvelous just what the Classic could recover on data in the sub range – perfectly suitable for the critical audiophile listener. Bass quality—tempo, articulation, pitch definition—is first rate down into the infra-sonic’s. The VPI casts a shockingly large yet transparent soundstage. Sounds are precisely rendered and embodied. In matters of audible space, the Classic is exemplary. This deck is highly dynamic and rhythmic and even large voltage shifts are parlayed instantaneously. - 6moons
