So many of you have
been asking us when an upgraded version of the Scout will be available.
Well...it's finally here! The VPI Scout Master consists of a resonance damping,
solid steel plate sandwiched between two Scout plinths, the Aries 2 platter and
bearing assembly, a newly designed 300RPM motor inside an aluminum housing and
easier VTA adjustability for the JMW-9 tonearm. The Scout Master is a full 15
pounds heavier, but shares the same compact 19" x 14" footprint as its little
brother. For an additional USD400, you can add the new VPI Outer Ring Clamp as
well! This is the perfect table for someone who wants more table than the Scout,
but cannot get into the Aries 2 price range. Again, VPI sets the standard for
"•the Scout Master was light on its feet, with snappy pacing and lithe rhythmic
drive. I felt good listening to it. Its ability to produce a deep, stable,
three-dimensional soundstage was particularly noteworthy. Overall, the Scout
Master is the best-sounding, best-looking turntable I've yet encountered from
VPI•" - Michael Fremer, Stereophile, September 2004
