        Yea, but who would have thought that Klipsch would have put their name on a turntable in 2016? Just goes to show the popularity of vinyl.

            Didn't Bryston get into the game as well?

            And what better way to get into it than with a pro-ject debut carbon, regardless of the name?

              Scary part is a lot of these companies will go away once the industry isn't hot anymore. Rather, if not go away (I doubt Bryston is going away) but they will stop making turntables. I'm all in favor of new ideas and passion like the guys at U-turn audio who make tables because they love it. Its the companies that are jumping while its hot only to disappear when when it isn't hot anymore that are frustrating. It's ok, we'll stay be here when the band-wagoners move one, as I'm sure companies like Rega, Pro-ject, and I hope U-turn will still be around when turntables are no longer the flavor of the month.

              Also, I agree with Steve Lefkowicz statement about a person's start in the high-end.

                If I take my cue from manufacturers (like Klipsch for instance as one example), plus the opening of new pressing plants and new vinyl pressing technologies, I'd be inclined to believe the vinyl resurgence is alive and well and hasn't peaked yet. In the end the consumer will decide though.

                  Any chance of a Nomad / Player without the headphone amp and built in phono stage at a lower price in the near future? That would be very exciting.

                    That would be the gateway drug into VPI, just like the MMG with Magnepan. Imagine a VPI Player (Lite) MMGs and something like a Rogue Audio Sphinx packaged together for $2500. All made in USA. That would be a heck of allot of music for less than some Audiophiles spend on interconnects or a power cord.

                    It's amazing that there is any markup left for the third party manufacturers that Pro-Ject is OEM manufacturing tables for at these $300-500 price points. The list just keeps getting longer and longer. First Music Hall, then I believe Cambridge Audio, throw in Crosley, Musical Fidelity and now Klipsch and anyone else I might have missed.

                      Delayed reaction on my part... we have considered it but I also need to pace myself/VPI an inexpensive VPI table is in our scope now but would create demand in production that I'm not sure we are 100% ready for. Also if/when we do I need to make sure it is in a way that doesn't diminish or take away from the VPI brand.

                        I doubt that Klipsch is going away any time soon!!!

                          I almost took a picture of a GIANT ad that Klispsch had at the Indianapolis airport that I saw when I landed from the show. The ad showed a young man carefully placing the tonearm onto a record on their turntable with some words about how good LPs sound. The bottom line is that ads like this help bring attention to the fact that LPs are still alive and turntables are cool.

                            I know that doing something to break even is a sure way to lose money but would you ever consider a entry level table to attract customers? Who would eventually move up to the other tables in the VPI line?
