VPI Scout V-1.1 Turntable

The Scout turntable has become the worlds best-reviewed turntable! The Scout is the lowest priced turntable in STEREOPHILE’S Class “B” and has attained high performance records worldwide. The deck is now available with the new platter and bearing and is called Scout 1.1.

For improved stability and damping, the Scout’s chassis is made from 1 1/8″ thick MDF bonded to a 12 gauge steel plate. The massive platter is composed of 1 3/8″ aluminium and is mounted to an inverted bearing of Teflon and brass on a 60 Rockwell case hardened shaft. The 500 RPM AC synchronous  motor chosen for the EU market is contained in a separate steel housing and drives the platter with smooth, quiet operation.

The JMW-9 tonearm is the perfect complement to the Scout, offering all the advantages of a unipivot tonearm at a bargain price. The arm has a low friction bearing mounted onto a solid stainless steel rod with a knurled ring to set VTA (Vertical Tracking Angle). As with the more expensive JMW-10.5i” and JMW-12.7” arms, the tonearm wand assembly of the JMW-9 can be removed and replaced in seconds. This allows instant cartridge changes with multiple armwands. An RCA junction box allows any RCA-terminated interconnects to be used.

The JMW-9 uses the same geometry and mounting as the Rega RB300 tonearm and can be dropped right into the Rega armhole with no modifications.
