SOLD: FS: VPI TNT Mk 2 Turntable & SDS

Recommended Posts

Item: VPI TNT Mk 2 Turntable with SDS speed controller (reduced price with extras)
Location:  Merewether, Newcastle, NSW
Price: $2500 (reduced from $3500)
Item Condition: excellent - see notes
Reason for selling: downsizing
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal
Extra Info:

 

The TNT series, designed by VPI’s Harry Westfield, is well known for its ability to transform vinyl playback into something very special.  This TNT Mk 2 model presents with authority and weight, reveals the all-important midrange magic, and provides plenty of detail and air.  Ambiance retrieval from good vinyl with an accurate setup is excellent. The package includes the following:

 

- Turntable, platter, motor, drive bands, and spring-loaded footers

- VPI SDS speed controller (33 rpm only)

- Tone arm board (this is reversible with two mounting holes, one for flush mounting and the other for elevated mounting)

- VPI record clamp

- replacement drive bands

 

Extras included in price: 

-  Audiomods Classic 2 Tonearm with adjustable VTA mounted with an Ortofon Bronze MM cartridge (as seen in photos)

-  Rega RB250 tonearm with Origin Live adapter, Origin Live VTA adjuster sleeve, with Clear Audio Aurum Beta S Wood MM cartridge

- Pass Labs DIY Pearl Phono Preamp (MM only)

 

PRICE: $2500 (reduced from $3500)

 

Note that this controller/motor/drive band combination does not have the torque to start the platter spinning.  A slight manual spin by the user, using the record clamp, is needed as you press the motor’s power button.  It takes only one second.  This solution has worked for many years and has helped preserve the motor and drive bands.

 

The turntable is available for a no-obligation audition at residence in Newcastle. Set up by an experienced enthusiast or professional is required.

So what’s the story for 45rpm playback?  You adjust the belt manually or you do it on the SDS?

It's just courtesy to follow it this way unless there is an alternative that is easier for the seller and buyer from a locations point of view.  Either way..... still waiting for the seller to reply back to my msgs 🤞

      Price: $3300 including shipping Australia wide - Price Drop $3100
      Item Condition: Excellent, but used
      Reason for selling: New Project/Custom Build
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info:
       
      This is a complete custom build from the ground up based on a Rega P series design. Raw cost of materials and items was over $6000.
       
      Plynth milled from single block of billet alloy on CNC router (around 15kg) Finished in red automotive paint Followed same dimmensions as a Rega P3 plynth. 5x Maglev feet (tried with 3, 4 and 5 configurations and 5 was the best) IsoKinetic IsoDrive Power Supply with 33/45 speed selection IsoKinetic 25mm Acrylic Platter IsoKinetic IsoSub Groovetracer Machined Subplatter IsoKinetic Phosphor Bronze Bearing Sleeve IsoKinetic Ruby Bearing + Spindle Oil (lifetime supply left in bottle) IsoKinetic Puck/Stabiliser IsoKinetic Red Thing Silicone Belt + Spare New One in Packet IsoKinetic MTB-D Motor Thrust Bearing + Motor Isolation Mod for Premotec Motor Premotec 50hz Synchronous Motor Audiomods Series 4 Tonearm with Series 5 bearing, lift and arm hold. Full VTA Adjustment - no VTA adjuster.  All original weights and headshell weights/spacers included to adjust to any cart. Custom Acrylic Dust Cover to accomodate arm height No cart included, but I did have an Ortofon MC25e on it and it was stunning.  
      *I have covered the hole bottom left corner where a power button would have gone if I didnt use the motor PSU with a samurai silver coin from WA mint. So the turntable is dubbed The Samurai.
       
      For interstate buyers, it will be professionally crated and foam lined for shipping with tonearm back in original transport box. Shipping Australia wide with insurance included.
       
      For those that want to know where to from here - my next build will be in the similar vein...but using the MK6 Audiomods tonearm for primary, 200mm monster delrin platter,  ceramic bearing sleeve, larger billet plynth with 2 armboards for future arm addition and external motor and controller.
