For their 30th Anniversary, VPI had to come up with something really special at just the right price for a world in a recession. The VPI Classic Turntable was the answer and the VPI JMW-Classic 1 tonearm was the logical choice for it.
Born from the 10.5i, stretched to fit the Classic chassis, simplified to save on cost, boiled down to the important basics that make for good engineering and good sound.
The VPI JMW-Classic 1 tonearm is so good Hi Fi Plus gave it as part of the Classic Turntable package "Turntable of the Year"!
The VPI JMW-Classic 1 arm is a full 10.5" long for very low tracking error, solid mount base, VTA adjustable with a ship captains wheel adjuster, RCA or optional XLR jacks, ultra stable design.
The VPI JMW-Classic 1 arm is fast, clean, stable, very low in distortion, and dynamic like a master tape. When combined with a cartridge of 7-11 grams and a compliance of 11-16 such as the VPI/Dynavector 20X you will be startled by the dynamic range a low level resolution this arm can reproduce.
