As I recall, about $1000 (yeah, not cheap!). I got mine through Elusive Disc or MusicDirect or one of those places. Mine is NOT the 3D version, but the Classic version.
Sure is convenient though! I can go from stereo to "true mono" in about 10 seconds! I do notice a difference between the mono cartridge and a stereo cartridge with the "mono" (or in my case "sum") switch engaged. Others believe there is no difference. For a REAL mono experience, shut off one channel and listen out of one speaker only!
I think it was George Harrison who said (upon seeing 2 speakers in the Apple Studios), "Why the hell would anyone need more than one speaker?"
Thanks, Rick! I think I'm gonna love this TT.
I always admired Mike's although I don't recall which VPI he had but I'm pretty sure he had a Dynavector 20X in his. We had some great times in his basement! Beer, ribs and music, it doesn't get much better than that.
I think Mike had an HW-19. I've loved my Scout since I got it back in 2005 (my god, that's twelve years ago!). Got the extra thick HRX-type platter, switched from JMW-9 to JMW-10.5i tone arm a few years later. I've thought about "upgrading", but then think "Why?" If I were buying today, I'd probably get a Prime or a Classic-3, though.
I think you'll love yours.
