    "After two years of work, blood, sweat, and tears, our collaboration with Shinola has finally come to light. This has been," according to Mat Weisfeld, President of VPI, "a labor of love to create an easy to use high-end audio product with the quality and performance of a VPI and with the style and dedication of a Shinola product." Both companies were driven," Mat added, "by their shared love for an American-made product and opportunity for the American worker."

    The Shinola "Runwell" has the platter and motor of a VPI Classic, the tonearm and usability (internal phono) of a VPI Player, and the feel of a true American Made muscle car.

    Turntable specifications:

    Two-speed belt-driven manual turntable: 33-1/3 and 45 RPM.
    Stainless steel precision low-friction tone arm and stand.
    300 RPM 24-pole AC synchronous motor.
    Pre-mounted moving magnet cartridge.
    Solid aluminum top and plate.
    Modular phono pre-amplifier.
    White oak wood skirt base.
    Speed accuracy: >0.3%.
    Wow and flutter: >0.1%.
    Rumble: >85 db.
    Metal feet.
    Dimensions: 4.3"H x 18.5"W x 13.5"D;
    Weight: Approx. 40 lbs.
    Availability: November, 2016.

    Price: $2,500

      I think so. It's also part of Alex's/Shinola's continuing mission to rebuilding and providing jobs in Detroit. Lot there in one package. Plug into your receiver, etc and it's off to the races.

        I didn't realize someone had rebooted that old brand name, which was known in my lifetime as part of a colloquial phrase about ignorance. (I guess I don't know shit either).
        Cool looking. And Detroit, huh?

        PS: the tagline about the 'feel of a true American muscle car" to me means it makes a lot of noise and doesn't handle very well, but hey, what do I know about marketing. I'd take a factory COPO Camaro, but would probably draw the line at a Trans Am with chicken decal (unless I grew a porn 'stash ala Burt Reynolds). Pedal to the metal, MoFo!

          Bill that is actually a great point! Well, the good news is that the table is dead quite. We works every hard on the isolation of the motor so it makes no noise. It has been very exciting working with Shinola and education to see how larger companies go through the design process of bringing a product to market. Looking forward to getting some Shinola's out in the world to make music
