VPI Launches "The Nomad" Complete Headphone-Friendly Turntable System (Corrected Copy)
VPI Industries today announced "The Nomad" a $995 "all in one" system consisting of a turntable featuring an precision machined MDF platter and plinth assembly and a precision bearing and includes a new less costly 10" aluminum gimbaled tonearm as well as a custom phono preamplifier and headphone amplifier.
In addition The Nomad comes with a pair of premium Grado headphones and a pre-installed Ortofon 2M Red. With both a headphone jack and RCA "outs", The Nomad is both a self-contained dorm-friendly sound system and one that can easily connect to a home theater system, or an iPod docking type sound system that has an "aux" input.
How cool is that? Even better is that Mat Weisfeld, now the company's President debuted the Nomad on Bloomberg News:
