RE: Since I'm new to VPI

This link gives you a glimpse of the part that attaches to the arm. There is also a glide plate that attaches to the base of the tower assembly. It is user installed in minutes, but can take a while to dial in, although it is much easier to optimize with the adjustable side weights on your 3D arm. You can get this mod from any VPI dealer for $150. It was developed to stabilize the unipivot arm. The unexpected side benefit is that it improves the sound quite noticeably. There are discussions about it in this forum, in Audiogon, in the VPI Forum, and in others. This mod has only been available for a couple of months so there may still be a waiting list for it, but it is easily the most effective tweak you can do for your VPI turntable. BTW, I second the endorsement for a metal arm if you have a lot of mono records and the use of a mono cartridge. This idea came from Harry and really works well for me on a large collection of old jazz records.
