From Mat Weisfeld at the vpiindustries forum Sorry about the silence on my end I have been out of state a lot more and it partially has to do with this topic. First, the Classic will not be evaporating completely, it is going to be pulled from the standard VPI line and will not be getting marketing. Since the Prime the ratio of Primes to Classic has been mind blowing (in a good way). Also from a performance stand point the Prime does blow away the Classic. That being said, it will not go away completely in the since of having special limited runs (mainly isolated to the US, sorry overseas but it is tough on the distributors). Also there has been a partnership VPI has been getting involved with for some time now that is about to go public (anyone who has been by the shop or at an audio society meeting might have gotten a hint of this). This "Made in America" partnership just might be taking concepts of the classic and wrapping it up in the more appropriate high end life style market it belongs in More news to come!
