Video: VPI’s Harry Weisfeld talks turntables at Montreal Audio Fest

Harry Weisfeld is a household name in high-fidelity circles. The turntable designer, and manufacturing icon who started VPI Industries has been in the business for more than 30 years, and doesn’t seem to be showing any signs of slowing down. I was able to catch up with him at the Salon Audio Montreal, sit down with him for a few minutes to talk about what he’s up to these days, and what’s in the pipeline for VPI.

Harry, and his son Mat in the Joseph Audio room at the Salon Audio Montreal on the weekend.

Since Harry’s son  Mat Weisfeld has taken over much of the day-to-day operations of VPI Industries, Harry seems busier than ever on improving existing components, coming up with new turntable designs, and fine-tuning a new 14-inch tonearm. I hope you enjoy this short video.
