VPI Industries Inc. is a family owned high-end audio manufacturer that was started by Sheila and Harry Weisfeld, the founders of VPI. The company is still family owned and run by Harry and son, Mathew Weisfeld, forty years later.
VPI Industries aims to make affordable high-end turntables and turntable accessories at a reasonable price for the consumer. All their products are made out of Cliffwood, New Jersey and they strive to only use quality parts made in the USA.
From the entry level Prime Scout to the supreme Titan via the new Prime 21, VPI caters for all budgets and all vinyl-based music fans.
Harry Weisfeld’s 2012 “Classic Direct” direct drive turntable was an outstanding technical achievement. This award-winning table was loosely based on the VPI Classic Series table technology and included a thick aluminum plinth and armboard and an inverted platter bearing riding on a PEEK thrust disc. Combined with a cutting-edge BLDC direct drive motor, the CLASSIC DIRECT was created. The Classic Direct provided a stable, solid foundation for the music, allowing the listener to hear deeply into the recorded grooves to the treasures buried with-in!
Designing a new turntable to celebrate VPI’s 40th anniversary provided VPI an opportunity to update the direct drive motor technology to incorporate advances in motion control and materials technologies.
