Plug-and-Play Simplicity, American-Made Superiority, and Engaging Entry-Level High-End Sound in One Package: VPI Cliffwood Turntable Features Pre-Mounted Grado Cartridge and Aluminum Platter

Named after the city that has served as VPI's manufacturing base for three decades, the Cliffwood turntable exists as both a tribute to made-in-the-USA superiority and proof entry-level high-end analog is still done best without any inferior outsourcing. True to VPI's storied heritage and simplified to strictly focus on sonics, the plug-and-play Cliffwood exudes value and plays vinyl LPs with engaging, dynamic sound. It comes complete with a pre-mounted cartridge exclusively designed for Cliffwood by Brooklyn-based Grado Industries. The Grado Green MI complements a nine-inch gimbaled tonearm with a lateral bearing, damped machined-aluminum armtube, and pure copper wiring. Cliffwood's 1.25-inch-thick non-resonant MDF chassis, hearty aluminum platter, 600RPM motor, and PEEK thrust disc bearing with graphite-impregnated brass bushings further speak to the engineering prowess of a ‘table whose sub-$1k price point strives to bring front-to-back audiophile quality to a much wider audience. Craftsmanship aside, Cliffwood's greatest overall achievement is really what matters most. It serves as immediate entry point into the warm, organic, and downright addictive experiences that only come from hi-fi vinyl.
