Built on a State-of-the-Art 3D Printing Machine: Incredibly Realistic-Sounding VPI JMW Classic 3D Marks Biggest Advance in Tonearm Technology in Five Decades, Available in Three Lengths
State-of-the-art 3D printing has produced the biggest advance in tonearm design anyone has ever heard in the form of the award-winning, incredibly natural-sounding VPI JMW Classic 3D tonearm. Available in three lengths (9, 10, and 12-inch), this groundbreaking device simply
gets out of the way and lets more music through. Made from one solid piece of perfectly non-resonant epoxy material (a high-temperature laser creates each layer, which measures .001 of an inch at a time) and a perennial entry on the Stereophile Class A Recommended Component list, the JMW Classic 3D armwand touts an extremely rigid character that literally has no resonant structure. As a result, this tonearm brings dramatic microdetails to the surface and lets you hear more of everything you want to hear on your records. Your VPI 'table will never be the same. 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed.
“It’s not that the metal JMW arm is so bad—it’s that the 3D-printed arm is so good.”
—Michael Fremer, Stereophile, Class A Recommended Component
“The 3D-printed armtube takes its name from the additive manufacturing (or ‘3D printing’) process used to produce it, creating a single-piece structure from headshell to rear stub designed and made to provide a totally even mechanical resonance response.”
—Anthony H. Cordesman, The Absolute Sound, Editors’ Choice Award
New Counterweight and Total Precision
The JMW Classic 3D armwand uses a new press-fit counterweight, making it vastly easier to use and eliminating the frustration of set-screws. Shown with optional SoundSmith Counter Intuitive, which allows for incredibly precise tracking force and azimuth adjustment.
Printed on a Highly Advanced $350k Machine
Each JMW Classic 3D armwand is made on a terrifically advanced 3D machine that costs $350,000 and which designs and builds complex parts previously built from multiple pieces (each with their own resonant pint) as one solid piece. Trust use when we say that the JMW Classic 3D is no subtle improvement.
