This VPI HW-19 Jr. is housed in a MK4 base. Included are an Audioquest PT-6 tonearm and an Audioquest Wildcat tonearm cable, which is an upgrade from the standard cable supplied with the PT-6.
The mechanical condition of the table is perfect, as well with the arm. The bearing on the table and the bearings on the arm are as tight as when new. The arm is very clean and the table looks very good. The cover has some light scratches, but nothing at all major or unsightly. The plinth and platter are clean and issue free. The base has a minor rub to the finish on the front left, which is pictured.
The cable is brand new and has never been used. The buyer of this table can also purchase an Audio Technica AT150MLX with about 50 hours on it (with box, etc), for $250 additional. Or, a new in box Denon DL-160 for $115.
Local pick-up or a meet within 50 miles of Ridgefield CT is strongly preferred. However, I am experienced in shipping VPI tables and am willing to ship this one within the US. The cost would be the actual cost of shipping plus $30 for packing supplies. The table would be triple boxed with the base in one box, the dustcover in another and then both of those inside of yet another. See my Audiogon feedback for references as to my packing abilities (user ID: reelsmith).
Will also trade up/down/even for a quality vintage fly reel or a bamboo fly rod.
