The Runwell promises the quality and performance of a VPI player with the style of a Shinola product, an outcome that took two years to achieve. The turntable shares the same platter and motor as a VPI classic and the tonearm and internal phono of a VPI player. Find the complete specs below.

Sharing the news on Facebook, VPI explained that both companies share a love for “American Made product[s] and opportunity for the American worker.” Accordingly, the deck is assembled in Motor City town Detroit and is billed as having “the feel of a true American Made muscle car”.

Available from November, the Shinola Runwell will retail for $2,500.
