vpi prime adapter for second arm placement

Postby Van the man84 out » Sun Jun 07, 2015 5:36 pm

Hi Matt hope all is well at vpi just wondering if there is any chance of adding a second arm for mono cartridge to my wonderful vpi prime any time soon ? Thanks again from a very happy prime 85# owner :D :D

No worries, it is coming :) We have been renovating the place for sometime now to make our production line more lean and mean! So far great results! Production has drastically picked up and the whole place is still being put together. There is still drilling, hammering, and sawing going on in the factory all day. We might all loose our hearing before it is done... which is a terrible thing for audiophiles :p

That being said, the second arm board was spec-ed out from the beginning... now that we are starting to catch up with the overall orders/demand we can begin to work on that add-on. No worries, when it is done i'll be sure to post it here ;)

So, does that mean that my existing Prime will accept a second arm? Will it be a DIY or require return to factory? Very excited!
thanks!

I can say for a fact the Prime does very well with 2 arms!

I LOVE this picture and what you did to make this work. The actual extension design is very similar though it is made to fit the full VTA base, This was the goal, to have a piece that would attach right to the back post so it is a simple add on to your Prime. Holiday time is coming ;)

If you can't wait, do what Jeff did :D

Mat, thanks. Love this table, the only way I would get rid of it would be for an Avenger!

Is it possible to use the second arm board with Aries 1 ?

I'm not that talented so I'll have to wait, but this is the second guy I've seen using two belts. What's up with that?

When using the HR-X pulley you can use up to 3 belts.
