The Sleek VPI Signature 21 Turntable Includes a Superb, Upgraded Tonearm, Spectacular Audiophile Sonics, and Easy Operation
The VPI Prime turntable won accolades throughout the audiophile world, and the Signature 21 Turntable offers numerous improvements that make it an even better performer than its acclaimed predecessor. It features an upgraded JMW 3D-10 Reference tonearm in a metallic black gloss finish with Nordost Reference wire. The chassis consists of an aluminum plate sandwiched between a composite material for improved dampening.
The VPI Signature 21 sports a gimbaled, VTA-adjustable tonearm. With higher-quality components and bearings, the new arm design is a significant upgrade that makes for a listening experience with tremendous clarity, detail, and sonic dynamics. The Signature 21 is designed with carefully engineered isolation feet to ward off vibrations.

"From a design standpoint, the VPI Prime Signature 21 looks like something straight out of a science fiction TV series or movie, but it functions in a way that will do your old and new vinyl records justice as you listen to them.... It's the perfect centerpiece to any high-end home stereo system."
