Luxury meets performance all in one package. A tasteful combination of aluminium, stainless steel and 3D printed technology. Over 40 years of refinement all leading up to this turntable.

The Prime Signature is the next step up from the VPI Prime. It features an upgraded JMW 10-3D Reference arm in a “metallic black” gloss finish with Nordost Reference wire. The chassis consists of an aluminium plate sandwiched between a composite material for improved damping.

Due to the additional weight of the table, we upgraded the feet to our Classic Signature feet. In addition, both the motor housing and all Delrin posts and armboards were upgraded to a heftier stainless steel.

NOTE - Limited edition now available in Rosewood at an extra cost!

" Looks like VPI has another winner on its hands, and the Prime Signature comes very highly recommended indeed!" - Alan Sircom, HiFi +

"It takes everything the standard model does and builds on it. There’s more insight, stronger dynamics and a lovely stability" - What HiFi

"Solid as a rock, oozing detail but blended successfully with clarity. All I can advise, in my simple, innocent, yet hopeful way is to tell you to buy this deck" - Paul Rigby, The Audiophile Man
