If you've been looking for a VPI, check this out VPI - Prime Scout 2016 Rectangular Plinth Turntable **OPEN BOX** It's open box, which is fine with Music Direct. I happen to have bought this in January and it is fantastic and you cannot beat the price at $1575! Amazing turntable for the money. Just thought I'd pass this on. I love mine! When I got mine, I believe it was the last one. VPI only made a certain number of these for Music Direct and they sold out quickly. Basically it is exactly the same as the 2017 version other than the curvy plinth - same motor, platter, tonearm, etc.
