hi i just bought a super prime scout and can't wait for it to arrive . looking forward to getting back to records again after almost 40 years .the seller i got mine from is selling them in several finishes all from the factory mine is white to match my focal speakers. this table comes with the 10.5 tone arm and vpa on the fly and the massive classic 20 lb platter and bearing. it seemed to be a deal so i jumped on it. i also was wondering if the plinth can be upgraded to nicer feet and i can add the round tops for the feet on the top of the plinth? just wondering if that would be a pain ? thanks all and I'm happy to be a new VPI owner as i always wanted one from my early teens when i got into audio.

You would need the regular Prime plinth or else you would have to start boring holes in the Prime Scout plinth to get the round tops as they sit in holes in the plinth.

Congrats on the new table, the white Prime Super Scout is one heck of a table!
