The Vanquish Table is a refined version of a Bespoke/limited model made by VPI Founder Harry Weisfeld, “The Vanquish”. The new one uses advancements in Direct Drive Technology, based on VPI’s HW-40 Direct Drive motor on a next-level design. Motion control circuitry/software, material study, and vibration isolation technology are based on refinements by VPI Engineer Mike Bettinger. In addition, the Vanquish is not a normal Direct Drive turntable, it is a Magnetic Direct Drive Turntable.
The Vanquish comes in VPI’s known Reference tripod shape giving the user the ability to mount up to three tonearms of any length, type, or manufacturer’s brand. VPI believes tonearms are a very personal/subjective choice for a listener.
The Vanquish is complete with VPI’s latest in high resolution 3D printing being mounted with a VPI Fatboy tonearm (choice of Uni or Gimbal bearing). However, the Vanquish, like the HW-40 includes “hidden” wiring as opposed to usual LEMO plug termination with a wire loop. For the Vanquish Fatboy Arm the Tonearm internal Nordost wire connects directly into the Phono stage creating less connections between the cartridge and phono stage. The Vanquish Fatboy is VPI’s first 14” 3D printed tonearm that provides both rigidity and resonance canceling. The new Vanquish armboard has been designed for additional isolation for the tonearm. The Vanquish power supply and motor controls have been relocated to the outside both for additional shielding and noise reduction.
The Vanquish comes complete with the Vanquish Phono Stage which is the next evolution of our already known VPI Voyager Phono, another design by Mike Bettinger’s handy work! The Phono Stage can take multiple inputs and while the prototype model only has two inputs, the final amount of inputs on the production model is still to be determined.
All components are complete with the VPI Vanquish Stand that shares the design and materials from the award-winning VPI Avenger Series Turntable. The stand has machined openings in the back to easily run and hide any cables to and from the Vanquish and associated components. In addition, the rack provides enough space to conveniently add a line stage.
