    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.

    No, but with the money you save you can afford to buy one.

    Do you believe that it's your last turntable? That's always good to hear. I bought my VPI Scout new from a local dealer in 2014, and I haven't looked back. I have swapped through many cartridges, added better feet and a deerskin turntable mat. I think I could always trade it in for a better turntable up the VPI line, but to be honest I could also live with this turntable for a lifetime. When I purchased it, I wanted to purchase a forever turntable and not just a small upgrade ( I was upgrading from a Rega P1). It would be cheaper to trade it in for a Prime or something better, but at the same time I kind of like upgrading parts here and there as it's my own.

    Just checked MD, "it's no longer available!" Too bad! I'm looking at the VPI Prime, 3D - 10" tonearm, VTA on the fly, and other important features.

    You can blame @Russell Elevado for that. Haha! I'm sure he'll enjoy his new toy. :)

    SSD regularly has open-box items for sale. Keep your eye on their website and you'll likely get a good deal too.

    When I originally saw that they even had these back in January, I called Bes at MD and he said they just sold 2 and only had 2 left. I put down that deposit immediately.

    And FWIW, call Bes at MD. He’s great and gave me 15% off in mine. So you can get a brand new one for under $2000 with a discount.

    I generally only list used items on that section (too many demo's to try and keep a demo list up to date most of the time!).
