The Outer Ring Clamp greatly improves the
performance of VPI turntables by flattening the outer edges of LPs,
increasing the cartridge’s tracking ability, removing resonance and
aiding detail retrieval. A massive ring designed to sit just outside the lead-in groove, the Outer Ring Clamp's weight flattens the record onto the platter, eliminating edge warps and more completely coupling the record to the platter. NOTE: The VPI Outer Ring Clamp works with the new steel platters and the older acrylic platters.
* Note: Scout, Aries 1 & 2, HW-19 & older TNT owners will need to purchase the HRX platter and bearing in order to use the Periphery Ring Clamp. Due to bearing height differences between the VPI models, please give us a call if you’d like to upgrade to the Periphery Ring Clamp and we’ll help you get the right bearing for your turntable.
