The big leap.....Scout---------->Classic 4

The big leap.....Scout---------->Classic 4

Postby Chazz798 » Sat Sep 15, 2018 10:58 am

Last month I decided to make a serious upgrade to my system. At the time I was using a Scout 1.1 with an Ortofon 2m Black cartridge. I have always loved the look of the Classic line of VPI turntables and decided to make a big jump to the Classic 4 with the 12" 3D printed arm, periphery ring and a Soundsmith Paua MKII cartridge. I'm in LOVE!
Here's the old set-up and the new.

Although I own an Avenger, I could certainly live with that table indefinitely. Congratulations on your beautiful endgame. :D

Yikes! I thought my Prime was high off the floor. Get that thing on a dedicated short stand and greatly improve your sound. It will be worth the effort. Build a stand if you need to. Just how high are the bottom of the TT feet off the floor? Can’t really tell by the photo.

I've been looking at shorter stands like the one linked below. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
