VPI Avenger Reference Turntable

The Avenger tables were originally a project started by Harry over 12 years ago. In the process of the design the project was dropped in mid-production due to excessive demand for the HR-X customers which left the design and proto-type chassis to be mothballed.

Tonearm included. Cartridges are sold separately.

Features

  • The Avenger chassis is three layers of bonded acrylic/aluminum/acrylic with damping material between layers.
  • 3 stainless steel corner posts for both isolation and tonearm mounting and for mechanical grounding (up to 3 will fit).
  • Analog Drive System (ADS) for the utmost accuracy in motor speed and fine speed adjustments.
  • Periphery Ring clamp for the ultimate in record warp reduction
    The 300 RPM, 24 pole, AC synchronous motor in machined aluminum Rim Drive Motor assembly.
  • The Inverted bearing features a hardened stainless steel shaft, 60 Rockwell chrome hardened ball, spinning in a phosphor bronze bushing, and sits on a PEEK thrust disc. The belt side load is placed at the center of the spinning bearing for zero teeter-totter effects.
  • The 25 pound 6061 aluminum magnetic drive platter has an accuracy of +/- .001” in a 39” circumference.​
  • The motor pulley has an accuracy of +/- .0005” when leaving factory.
  • Fatboy 12" Gimbal with Nordost Reference wire.
  • Avenger Reference Feet – Machined aluminum, knurled cones set in a machined Delrin isolation pad that sites in a machined aluminum isolation pad for top of the line isolation and noise cancellation.
