VPI is very proud to announce the re-launch/re-branding of the Nomad as the “VPI Player Turntable”.  The Nomad had undergone revisions from it’s version 1 to version 2 state which essentially made it a completely new table.  Though it is not due for a full roll out until end of June/early July, we have started to tease its upcoming production.  It will make it’s official National debut at the Capital Audiofest Show and it’s international debut at the Hong Kong Show with Ernest Audio Limited, as well as potentially other Asian market shows around the same time.  This re-branding/re-launching ties in with our recent hire of Mike Bettinger.  He has examined and improved the circuitry to make the table more streamlined, quieter, and versatile.
