Hello from Sydney,

Thought I might show a couple of pictures of my beautiful Classic 1 that I purchased earlier this year.

Cheers

I love the look of that table, the wood base is amazing.

Hi Harry,

It's actually your standard black Classic 1 plinth. To cut a long story short, I accidentaly scratched the plinth not long after I bought it. Oh boy, was I annoyed with myself for doing that. Anyway, sending it back to the States didn't seem feasible or affordable for a repair so I sent it to a local company that makes Australian speakers - Legend Acoustics. I've bought all my speakers from there and I know the cabinet maker well - he's a master craftsmen.

I knew I could trust him to strip the turntable back and re-polish. I thought, if it's going to be stripped, I might as well do something bespoke. I chose to have it stained in Australian Bloodwood then lacquered. The result speaks for itself.

I'm glad you like it. And I love the VPI Classic 1 sound.

Cheers,

Laurie

Looks great with the anti-skate removed! I did the same.
