VPI's Nomad Targets Vinyl Lovers That Own Home Theaters

By |


VPI-Nomad.jpgLooking past the stereotypical audiophile audience, VPI has come to market with their new Nomad system complete with a turntable, tonearm, phono preamp and even a set of Grado headphones. The $995 VPI Nomad is designed to be an add-on to home theater systems, soundbar based AV systems and computer audio based AV systems.�

From VPI
VPI Industries just announced the introduction of The Nomad, the world's first vinyl playback lifestyle system that offers music lovers an affordable, upgradeable, and high performance point of entry into the world of vinyl. The system is compatible with home theater A/V receivers, sound bars and wireless digital tabletop components with analog inputs.

The Nomad is comprised of a 10-inch aluminum tonearm, and 20-pound plinth and platter assembly borrowed from VPI's award-winning Traveler turntable, a pair of premium Grado headphones and a pre-installed Ortofon 2M Red phono cartridge. The Nomad's custom phono pre-amplifier and headphone amplifier are designed to maximize both the sound quality and modular design of the upgradeable system.

Designed to work with existing systems that might not otherwise have a turntable and phono pre-amplifier, The Nomad is ideal for consumers whose primary system is a home theater A/V receiver, sound bar or a tabletop wireless system with a pair of analog inputs.
Noted Mat Weisfeld, President of VPI Industries: "The Nomad is a direct response to the double-digit sales growth over the past five years of new vinyl in both the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia. The tonearm takes advantage of the technology in our award-winning Traveler turntable and its gimbaled tonearm."

"The Nomad is a radical departure for VPI -- even with the success of our entry-level Traveler turntable that opened our eyes to the demand for affordable high-end turntables among the 25-35 year-old demographic. The explosive growth of personal audio and the growing demand among consumers for premium headphones, convinced us that there was a need for a portable high-quality entry-level analog playback system that could work easily in college dorms, apartments, offices, and even vacation homes."

Availability:
The Nomad Vinyl Playback System will be available for sale in Q1 2014 through VPI's select network of dealers for $995.
