VPI Traveler Turntable and Dynavector 20x2H Cartridge Combo From Music Direct Sweepstakes

Register to win a VPI Traveler Turntable and Dynavector 20x2H Cartridge Combo From Music Direct (MSRP $2,150) we are giving away.

Analog Planet and Music Direct are proud to offer you a chance to win the brand-new turntable from VPI, The Traveler. This turntable is dedicated to the memory of VPI co-founder Sheila Weisfeld, and it’s an amazing American-made work-of-art. Combine this turntable with the great high-output moving-coil Dynavector 20x2H phono cartridge and you are in for such a treat. We dare to say that no digital front end can compete. But hey, we’re analog lovers!

Josh Bizar from Music Direct says they will also be including some analog set-up tools and some incredible newly-pressed vinyl so will instantly know how amazing this analog package sounds. As an added bonus, Michael Fremer will personally set up the cartridge with his USB scope.

This package would be great to win, I've been drooling over all the new stuff at MD for awhile now.

This table doesn't look like the more industrial VPI tables of years past. VPI has really outdone themselves as far as cosmetics go. And I'm sure it sounds good too! I'll let everyone know how good it sounds after I win it!

 If I win one of these I will celebrate by playing every single record I have.  That should only take me up to, I estimate, my third re-incarnation....

He's been begging and Pleading me to let him get a new turntable. He just doesn't understand that we're poor. So, for my sake more than his, replace his whining with some music.

My turntable is so old and tired I'm ashamed to let anyone even see it, let alone listen to it. Boy would this beauty be a welcome addition!
