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.

My 40 year old Pioneer PL530 has been a good friend over the years but I just bought a modded Rega P25 and I am stoked.  But a new VPI Traveler would be nice, too. 

zenmaster's picture

This looks like a winner. I hope I am too.

Demo1's picture

A great sounding package that I'd love to win!

sms057's picture

Yes I like analog. This VPI Traveler Turntable would be a great replacement for my PL-540. Am listening to Beethoven's 6th on vinyl while writing this comment. I have re-capped my PL-540, changed the tone-arm GND and oiled the bearing. I really enjoy listening to my LP's but feel that there's more detail in my records that I am missing with the PL-540. Let me win the VPI Traveler Turntable and my PL-540 can have its well deserved retirement.

enoguy's picture

Have a 20 year old T T and it's time for this one...

Okay, this would be awesome for my son - a budding vinylphile

Old Man Vinyl's picture

  Artful Technology, this beauty would look great next to my Transcriptor Skeleton and Thorens TD125; and teach the old dogs to sing!! When I go "New" The VPI Traveler certainly will be on my short list.

I have a scout and have been trying to get my little brother into vinyl. It would be awesome for his first table to be the little brother to mine!

JRSBat's picture

Great combo - even better when sitting on my rack.

Packgrog's picture

I started with analog less than a year ago, and have upgraded and improved considerably since then. But now I feel like I've already outgrown my Rega P2 after only a couple of months. I would LOVE one of these, and would certainly like supporting an American company that actually manages to produce something of good quality. At the moment I just don't have the funds. So, here's hoping!

Great   turntable   .  Well   Made 

milleman's picture

If I win this and it sounds better than my modified Thorens TD115 with TP30 tonearm and Ortofon VMS20e mkII cartridge, I'll keep it.  If not, I will donate it to any of my budding vinylphile friends...

JJ Golden's picture

Been watching the progress on this new VPI table.
