I give my platter a gentle push just before I push the on switch. No belt squeal, less belt wear, no powder to get on my record, less belt slip. Try it when you feel better. You might like it. Nice table!!

I've never seen a rosewood that light - looks fantastic. Nor have I seen the HRX pulley like that before. That's a fantastic looking table and I'm sure sounds amazing. Congrats on the upgrade!

Thanks for the kind comments. I am enjoying the table and just thrilled to have it. It's so quiet in the grooves, dynamics are incredible, deeper bass, ect. It is simply amazing soundwise.

I bought the table through a VPI dealer. The former owner of the table ordered a VPI HW 40 direct drive.

My friend I sold my Prime to can't wait to hear the classie 4.. After installing my Lyra Kloes on the 12 inch arm with dual pivot , I couldn't beleive how much easier the installation was with the dual pivot. I waited until a mint protractor arrived to do the install.

VPI should ship tables with the dual pivot installed already by the factory.

Now that's a table! I forgot how much I love the look and performance of the Classic 4 table.

That's a really nice score and some would argue a final destination table. Can't wait to hear you impressions once you get it dialed in and spend some time with it.

Congrats on your purchase of the pre-owned Classic 4 in Rosewood. The lines of the Classic 4, along with the Rosewood are beautiful! You must be smiling from ear to ear every time you look at it! Let the music play!!!

Hi Moon


I owned the VPI Classic 4 that Moon purchased and it is wonderful to seeing it bring the same joy to you that it did to me.

I am the proud owner of A VPI HD-40 serial#: 25 and the joy continues. Jody from Brooklyn Audio facilitated the exchange and is a wonder dealer and person. Don’t hesitate to reach out to him as he is as fair, ethical and honest as the day is long.

Cheers

I can 2nd Jerry's recommendation of Jody at Brooklyn Audio. I have bought from Jody several times. Jerry, glad you are enjoying your new HW40. I was in Chapters yesterday and saw a review in an audio mag on the HW40.

Since getting the Classic 4,after the picture I submitted, I put on the HRX Pulley and bought the kab strobe kit to dial in the speed. I also bought tru sweep from the makers of the tru lift. It does a great job of removing any dust during playing a record and is also grounded. https://www.integrityhifi.ca/tru-sweep

In Canada you can get the tru sweep for $259.00 at Electronic Depot.
