Good day, I am regretfully selling my VPI HW 19 Mk III with Sumiko MMT arm & Sumiko Oyster Cartridge to fund an opportunity that has come up that I do not want to pass up.
This is a VPI HW 19 Mk III. Incredible construction with great materials. Heavy top plate and platter made of acrylic, which reduces resonance for quiet backgrounds.
Sumiko MMT tonearm with VTA (Vertical Tracking Angle) adjustment. The tonearm is mounted on acrylic arm board.
Audio Quest RCA to tonearm cable
Dust Cover. Extra belt, threaded isolation cones for better isolation in addition to the original feet. Record clamp with two chips – still functions and can be replaced
There is some very minor cosmetic wear. Look at the pictures. The record clamp has some chips but can be replaced or upgraded. Still functions.
I bought this from the original owner who bought this awesome turntable directly FROM VPI.
Tonearm and platter will be removed for shipping and the transport screws will be installed. I do not have the original box but it will be packaged safely for shipping.
I only charge for the actual shipping charges, I have added a handling cost to cover the insurance and box for the turntable.
Please contact me with any questions or comments Picking up the turntable is also available and more desirable than shipping!
I will be adding more current photos in the next day or so, the current photos are from about two months ago. Please send a message if you are looking for specific areas.
From the VPI website:
The HW-19 Mk. III is the logical next step in the progression towards realistic musical reproduction. All the weak points of the Jr. are addressed in the Mk. III. Better yet, the improvements incorporated in the Mk. III are available as upgrades to the Jr.
The Mk. III changes the platter to a black acrylic material incorporating a six-pound lead ring. This material is closer to the makeup of vinyl itself, providing more effective absorption of the vibration generated by the moving stylus. The inertia of the platter is four times that of the Jr.'s, resulting in more powerful bass, quieter backgrounds, and greater clarity.
The sub-chassis changes from one inch thick MDF to a non-magnetic, 10 gauge, stainless steel sheet laminated to a 1/2" shiny black acrylic top plate and tonearm board. The tonearm board is removable for easy arm changes.
