VPI Scout 21


The Scout 21 is the same as a Prime Scout but has a better motor and better feet! Using the same platter, chassis, unpivot arm, and internal motor; the Scout 21 adds improved isolation and vibration control with the more robust motor housing and HW-40 feet! Taking the design cues of the Prime Scout, the Scout 21 is an evolution of its predecessor with an improved 300 RPM motor housing and improved isolation feet. They are paired with a JMW 9 Tonearm!

"How did VPI's Prime Scout stack up against the Scout? The Scout is gone from their line, and my review sample long gone from my home, so I'm forced to rely on memory—and memory suggests that the new model sounds like a clearer, tightened-up, altogether more engaging version of the old. If you liked the Scout, you'll really like the Prime Scout, which seems to offer good value, both comparatively and in and of itself. " - Art Dudley

"VPI turntables are some of the most reliable in the world: in terms of build quality, in terms of set-up but also in terms of sound quality. I feel that I can trust a VPI to perform. This Prime Scout certainly does that. It maintains the company’s supreme high quality and, for the price, offers incredible value. "

"So, if what you really want is the Prime, I’d save a bit harder and go straight for the more expensive turntable. But, if what you want is a turntable for under £3k which gives more than a hint of what a proper high-end ‘table can do, then the VPI Prime Scout delivers a great deal of the important stuff, without apparent effort. And that’s a neat trick in itself. Recommended! " - Steve Dickinson
