Weighing all of 48 lbs, VPI’s award winning Scoutmaster turntable is a literal heavyweight. But now it’s got a big brother, the TEAC VPI Scoutmaster II, with an aluminum block platter that weighs 19 lbs and a total weight of 53 lbs. According to Akihabara News, the weight of the turntable offsets unwanted vibration to create the “purest sound” possible.
Like the Scoutmaster, the Scoutmaster II will come equipped with VPI’s JMW-9, a “virtually friction-free” unipivot tone arm. Want to experience the “purest sound possible”? That’ll be ¥525,000 ($5,422 USD) please. Contact TEAC or visit their website for more details, written in Japanese of course.
