Music Direct Hooks Thom Up!

Thom Osburn, a record store owner living in of Norcross, Georgia, is the lucky winner of the deluxe holiday sweepstakes package sent by Music Direct. For Thom, this was surely a holiday to remember.

Thom's prize included a Marantz TT-15 turntable, a Clearaudio Virtuoso Wood MM cartridge, and a stack of records including the Grateful Dead, Stevie Wonder, and Frank Sinatra. Oh wait, did I forget the Geodisc to help Thom align his new cartrige? Or how about the custom made dust-cover for the Marantz turntable? And I shouldn't forget to mention a wet and a dry brush for cleaning. All this gear will certainly come in handy for Thom, who owns Feed Your Head Music an eBay record store.

A huge thanks should be extended to Music Direct for putting together this great gift package with a value of at least $2020. As to who will be our next lucky winner? Better Ask Alice.

I've been to his store many times and gone home with some used LP treasures.  I know he will love it with his McIntosh gear.  Congrats. Even if I didn't win it, it came to Georgia. Close, but no cigar.  Thom,  Enjoy!

I want to publicly thank Music Direct for their incredible generosity with this simply wonderful prize, and also thank Stereophile (I've been a reader since the eighties), and Mssrs Fremer and Bitran for their kindness.

I am a vinyl guy for certain, and even though I own three 'tables of recent manufacture none come close to the fidelity / sonic transparency of this magnificent Clearaudio/Marantz combo. The sound is so amazing it makes we want to re-dub all the needledrops I play in the car when I travel. The crunchy inner tracks on my old UK 'A Hard Day's Night' never sounded so un-crunchy! My wife has been as dazzled as I am with the playback.

If there's anyone reading this who has considered this 'table and wondered if the design was all for 'show' or for 'sonics', I believe the latter is the correct answer. When I eventually wear this cartridge out I will be hot to replace it with the same.
