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.

The universe is flat and why that's important
Inflation also gave cosmologists the measuring tool they needed to determine the underlying geometry of the universe. It turns out this is also crucial for understanding how the cosmos came from nothing.
