VPI PLAYER – THE AFFORDABLE ALL-IN-ONE

VPI PLAYER – THE AFFORDABLE ALL-IN-ONE

The Player all-in-one turntable has been lovingly engineered in New Jersey by the US masters of vinyl replay, VPI. Equipped with a cartridge, a built-in phono stage and headphone amplifier the VPI Player is…ready to play!

Designed to be an all-in-one high-end, but affordable turntable solution, the VPI Player brings vinyl to sparkling life. Featuring a built-in phono stage, headphone amp, 9-inch metal gimballed arm, mounted cartridge, and machined aluminium platter, the Player is a plug ‘n’ play solution for all listeners. VPI have fully prepared the Player in their factory so that there is minimal set-up required and your vinyl can be spinning straight away.

The on-board headphone amplifier allows you to plug a pair of headphones into the turntable, and listen directly to your vinyl – no amplifier required! The built-in phono stage has been designed to work perfectly with the Ortofon 2M Red phono cartridge that comes pre-mounted in the VPI Player’s tonearm, and the headphone amplifier has its own volume control. If you’d prefer to use an external phono stage to link the Player to your hi-fi system, then you can simply bypass the one that’s built in.

The Player punches way above its weight class and delivers a reproduction of intense musicality. For those that have heard all the hype about the vinyl sound, but not listened to their records in years, the VPI Player will deliver more than they were hoping for.

Available in a striking pure-white finish, the Player is at home in any environment.

With an upgradable platter, tonearm, feet, and the ability to engage and disengage the electronics, there are a host of options to allow the VPI Player to be taken further into high-end audio territory.

No other manufacturer can produce such a musically engaging turntable at this price. The standard of construction, grade of materials and outstanding audio reproduction are usually found in tables that cost much more. 

VPI has not forgotten the simple and beautiful tactile joy of playing vinyl – let the needle softly drop into the groove to start the VPI Player performance.

RRP: £1,500 (with a three-year warranty)
