The VPI Nomad is the first all in one high-end entry level turntable.  Complete with a headphone amplifier, phonostage, and pre-mounted Ortofon 2M Red cartridge on a 10 inch Gimballed / Yoke bearing tonearm, it is the perfect solution to enjoying your records!  It also has standard RCA connections providing the ability to connect to a standard amplifier and desktop/floor standing speakers. The Nomad turntable is a precision instrument that has been thoroughly tested to create the musical experience you're looking for!

 

WARNING: The Nomad’s phonostage is not defeat-able and MUST NOT be plugged into another phonostage.  Doing so could result in serious damage to your speakers.
