VPI Balanced XLR Junction Box

There won’t be any performance difference between using rca only and xlr junction box with xlr/rca termination because your would float xlr pin 1 (ground), therefore, having the exact same connection as the rca connection.

1. Will the VPI Balanced XLR junction box fit in a Classic Signature turntable?
2. Is $300 a fair price?
3. Sound improvement yes or no?


Yes, our XLR box will fit on any VPI table/armbase with a BLACK color junction back.  The earlier silver boxes are a bit different and will not work with our current junction boxes/the XLR.  We did have silver XLR junction boxes back in the day but it has been so long since anyone with a VPI that old whose has requested we discontinued it all together.
