I just picked up my Prime Scout today from VPI. What an unbelievable sounding turntable!

That device looks like a Dust Buster/Dust Bug.

Thanks for the good wishes. The shelf is HiFi racks ltd. I bought this from the U.K. In this picture you can see the wood brace that is mounted into the wall stud. The base is then connected by two steel bars into the base. It holds up to 200 pounds! I got this because I could not build my own, I am not a handy wood worker and my wife won't let me experiment with buying new tools.. :lol:

Now my turntable is secured to my house! No vibrations from walking jumping or dancing. :lol:
Here is the link: http://www.hifiracks.co.uk/products/wall-mounts


The thing in the back is in fact an anti static dust brush. The VPI is much taller than the brush base would extend so I DIY'd a base and soldered the wire to the Dust brush base and then ran the wire through the new base and into the ground on the back of the turntable. Now it works perfectly with the VPI!
