Vol. 19, No. 1 Summer/Fall, 2016



The Avenger and Avenger Reference turntables have been in development on and off for the past 12 years but have now, finally, reached the marketplace as actual products. They are VPI's new flagship models and are Harry Weisfeld's masterpiece achievements.

VPI Avenger turntableThe Avenger chassis is comprised of three bonded layers, acrylic/aluminum/acrylic, with damping material between layers, locked in by 3 isolation steel corner posts, 3 bolts, and the massive bearing assembly. The corner posts which hold the tonearms, have adjustable machined knobs that give the user the ability to easily raise and lower the height and level the table. The corner posts connect to the cone stabilizers which sit in a machined Delrin/ball bearing isolation base reminiscent of that used on the Prime turntable. Fully-adjustable arm boards are made from 5/8" 6061 aluminum for rigidity and grounding. The table can mount up to three arms of any brand and length. The Avenger uses the Prime 300RPM drive motor pod with a Classic motor as well as the Classic bearing and Classic Signature feet. It comes fitted with a JMW 10-inch 3D tonearm with VTA-on-the-fly adjustment and with a stainless steel record weight. The retail price is $9500. There are a number of options such as the Periphery Ring Clamp, the JMW 12-inch 3D tonearm, the Avenger motor, and the Avenger feet. These come standard on the Avenger Reference (see below) but can be added individually to the standard Avenger if one can't go all the way to the full Avenger Reference.

VPI Avenger Reference turntableThe major difference between the Avenger and the Avenger Reference is its massive and unique magnetic drive assembly.  The top or slave platter, is in a PTFE Super Lube inverted bearing with almost zero rotational motion so there is no wear on that thrust disc. The powerful magnets from the drive platter grab the magnets in the slave platter and send it rotating noiselessly with a well-damped motion. Wow and flutter levels are exceptionally low, and noise level is almost -100dB. The Reference comes standard with the JMW 12-inch 3D arm, the HR-X weight, a Periphery Ring Clamp, and Avenger feet for $21,000. (Well, it is Harry's lifetime masterpiece achievement!) Additional tonearms can be purchased and fitted for those who want to use multiple cartridges.
