...and the more I think about it, the more I think "I don't know what I'm talking about, trying to convince this thread my system is hi end."
If I heard a VPI through my preamp and cans I'd probably be spewing and need to buy it.
Some deck with a cnc'ed plinth and ebay parts might be a good start, but seriously it's just a cobble together of expensive parts, that need not have the right synergy with each other just by chance, and it's only as good as it's bearing. I reckon the RB300 is a killer arm though, can definitely hear how much better it is than say the Mission 774LC arm I also own
This is gonna happen, I'm gonna get that itch, I just know it.
Would clearaudio be a step up?
I don't know what sort of bearing they have.
Bloody hell, I'm still only using the Airpax motor, can't be high end yet.
mid - mid/high, maybe.
