This fully integrated Step-up Transformer/VPI Interface Box was specifically created to improve the performance of your VPI turntable when used with a low output Moving Coil Phono Cartridge. It replaces the standard VPI Interface Box with a unit that combines the top of the line Bob's Devices exclusive "Blue Series" CineMag 1131 Step Up Transformers with the VPI Interface Box. This unit eliminates a set of interconnects and connectors in the phono playback circuit. The path between the moving coil cartridge and the phono preamplifier is as critical as it is sensitive due to the low voltage and current being transmitted. Further, this path is also subject to RF and other interference. You will hear the difference by streamlining this path - "the fewer stones in the road the smoother the ride."
This Bob's Devices VPI-SUT replaces the standard VPI interface box on the following arms where the interface box is directly attached to the tonearm base/platform : JMW 12.7, JMW 12.6, JMW 12.5, JMW 9T, JMW 9S, JMW C2, JMW C3, Classic, JMW 10, and JMW 10.5i (and other heritage JMW arms - contact us for specific applications). It will not work where the interface box is mounted directly to the plinth.
You will, "Hear the Magic!"

**All Cartridges Installed Free Of Charge**
The VPI Classic 1 turntable comes standard with the unipivot JMW-10.5i tonearm Special Edition in rigid mount mode, new VPI silver coated pure copper wire, a 2.5 thick plinth trimmed with real black oak or real solid walnut finish (at no additional cost), a solid mounted 600 RPM AC synchronous motor, new 2 thick machined aluminum platter, silent inverted bearing, and new isolator feet derived from the HR-X.
The sound of the Classic 1 turntable is fast, clean, wide open, with deep powerful bass, and unequalled in speed stability. The Classic 1 turntable gives any turntable made regardless of price a serious run for the money.
This completely new design has produced the simplest and one of the best sounding VPI tables to date.
VPI Classic Turntable Features:
Special Edition JMW-10.5i SE tonearm - By giving up vta on the fly adjustments, you get most of the sound of the highly reviewed JMW-10.5i tonearm. A new less expensive base and mounting saves hundreds of dollars but gives up little in sound.
New 6061 machined aluminum 18 pound high inertia platter with precision inverted bearing and stainless steel damping plate.
Speed stability on par with a master tape - Due to the rigid mounting of motor - platter - tonearm there is no random motion to cause speed instabilities.
Noise rejection allowing the Classic 1 turntable to sit on a wood shelf near four 15 subwoofers and having virtually no feedback.
Lack of random motion between the motor - platter - tonearm gives the ultimate in low level resolution. Not only does this rigidity improve speed stability, it also allows the retrievel of low level information challenging the world's great turntables and master tapes.
Absolutely solid, non-resonating laminated one-piece chassis holding all components. This is not a wooden frame; it is a solid laminated 2.5 thick MDF block with 11 gauge steel attached to the top with silicone and long bolts through all the layers. The chassis weighs 30 pounds and is totally non-resonant. Now with solid black oak or solid walnut wood finish on all four sides.
RCA jack termination so you can use the interconnect of your choice.
Tonearm anti-skate - For those that require the fine adjustment of anti-skate, it is standard on the JMW-10.5i SE.
Optional lift off full dustcover is available.
Optional periphery ring clamp.
Optional SDS power supply.
Optional XLR conectors.$3,299.00Classic 1 - Black Buy Now
