VPI Aries turntable (SME armboard)This is the highly desirable original VPI Aries turntable with SME armboard. The fact that an SME tonearm can be used with this VPI Aries, instead of the quirky VPI JMW arms, makes this turntable better than even the Aries 3. In addition, the original Aries also features the TNT 5 heavy platter that is made of acrylic, stainless steel and lead, with Hotrod Rulon and tungsten carbide bearing. The ridiculous light clear acrylic platter on the Aries3 doesn't even begin to compare. This listing is for the turntable only, does not include tonearm or cartridge. Check our other listings for many tonearm and cartridge selections. This VPI Aries retailed for $3500 as equipped. It was brand new in factory sealed boxes when it purchased it as excess inventory from an authorized VPI dealer in NYC. We took it out of the box for the first time in November 2011. It is in perfect condition. Complete with original boxes, synchronous drive motor, drive belt, cone feet, record clamp. Very rare! Almost impossible to find a nicer VPI Aries turntable.
