VPI custom table
This post is primarily to show my latest project. I have been acquiring VPI components a few years and the day has finally arrived. Having completed many commission pieces in the past I decided to construct a custom plinth and isolation base utilizing Gingko balls. Now that I have completed the project I decided to post a few photos. The final specifications of the turntable with the feet are, 21 ½ “ X 15 3/8" X 4 1/8" (W x D x H), not including the isolation platform. The table with the motor is quite massive at 63 ½ lbs. Once mounted on the platform a total of 76 ½ lbs., on the suspension balls. A visually stunning, imposing, rock solid piece of audio equipment, as I am sure you will agree. The construction of the table was executed with the utmost care and consideration for final performance of the rig.
Since completion I have spent many hours auditioning the table with many familiar favourite recordings that are known by audiophiles for their quality. I was immediately struck by the rigs’ absolute neutrality. The table disappears during playback, no colouration, an obvious absence of any audible mechanical or acoustic interference. I had acoustic feedback issues with my last table, absolutely none here. The finished table in all aspects, appearance and performance, has surpassed all my expectations. I am very excited with it and will now continue to immerse myself in listening.[album][/album]
