For Sale is a VPI Avenger turntable with upgrades from VPI's top reference Avenger line. VPI upgrades include Avenger Motor (upgrade from the Prime motor), VPI Reference Feet with pucks, 12" 3DR Reference arm with carbon wrap and Nordost Reference Wire, 12" arm base VTA tower, HRX pulley, and 3 belts. HRX center weight included. Please note that the Periphery Ring and Cartridge pictured are not included with the Avenger. I am the original owner, purchased brand new from Reference Analog, a VPI authorized dealer. It was purchased less than a year ago, but has only been used for a few months. I've sold off my system to pay for medical and living expenses and sadly, this is the last to go. I was holding onto it with the hopes of keeping it, but cannot. Only used the Avenger for a few months and has minor blemishes from normal use. Feel comfortable with the excellent grade. This is truly the last turntable you'll need due to its flexibility (accommodating up to 3 tonearms of any kind) and overall reference performance.
Shipping is via insured Fedex Ground for a flat rate of $200 (there are 2 boxes). Please add 3% paypal if not doing friends/family option. This ships in two separate boxes (the Avenger Platter is packaged separately). I am willing to drive and meet to save on Shipping if you would like. I'm in Pennsylvania, but could maybe meet in the DC, Virgina, Maryland area. Buy with confidence - please check my positive feedback.
I have all the original packing and boxes, azimuth bar, cartridge weight gauge scale, VPI allen wrenches, manual, etc. Feel free to ask with any questions. You can call Reference Analog if you want to verify my purchase. I can also text you a video of the Avenger playing if you are interested. I also have an unused MINT LP Protractor for cartridge alignment ordered specifically for the Avenger and 12" 3D arm setup. I can throw that in with the table if interested.

From the VPI website:
The VPI Avenger table was originally a project started by Harry over 12 years ago. In the process of the design the project was dropped in mid-production due to excessive demand by HR-X customers which left the design and proto-type chassis to be mothballed. The good news about the abandoned design is Harry instead shifted his focus into starting and completing the VPI Classic Turntable.
Shortly after the development of the Prime, and while cleaning out the warehouse in preparation for a dealer training event, the forgotten Avenger and its designs were re-discovered! The working name was the "Tri-Pod Project". Being newly motivated, Harry has finally put in motion the table that will be his master piece! The unique iterations that had been crafted from the original process were completed as Special Editions. The Table:
The VPI Avenger chassis is three layers of bonded acrylic/aluminum/acrylic, with damping material between layers, locked in by 3 isolation steel corner posts, 3 bolts, and the massive bearing assembly. The corner posts which hold the tonearms (up to three will fit) have adjustable machined knobs giving the user the ability to easily raise and lower the height to level the table. Fully adjustable armboards are made from 5/8” 6061 aluminum for rigidity and grounding. The table can mount up to three arms, any manufacture's brand, and any length! The Table: The Avenger chassis is three layers of bonded acrylic/aluminum/acrylic with damping material between layers. 3 stainless steel corner posts for both isolation and tonearm mounting and for mechanical grounding (up to 3 will fit). The 300 RPM, 24 pole, AC synchronous motor is capable of high torque and quiet operation. The motor is installed in a separate aluminum and steel machined assembly The Inverted bearing features a hardened stainless steel shaft, 60 Rockwell chrome hardened ball, spinning in a phosphor bronze bushing and sits on a PEEK thrust disc. The belt side load is placed at the center of the spinning bearing for zero teeter-totter effects The 20 pound 6061 aluminum platter has an accuracy of +/- .001” in a 39” circumference The motor pulley has an accuracy of +/- .0005” when leaving factory JMW 12-3DR with Nordost Reference wire
