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.

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.

Good to see that VPI can come out with turntable at this price and still made here in the US. The tonearm looks great. I'm sure the combo sound good.

Love VPI turntables this is going to an incredible package for someone

Would love to own this deck especially with the Dynavector 20X2!

michaelcazares's picture

This is my first vpi table thanks

scrafts's picture

I've been a VPI guy since 1989. My first VPI table has lasted well over 23 years. It's getting a bit long in the tooth and a modern replacement would be just what the doctor ordered. I just had my 20-something year old record cleaning machine overhauled at VPI. Their service and customer support are second to none. Thanks VPI!

Wow, the more I look, the more I like the slim sexy look of the VPI Traveler. Stick that Dynavector on the gimbaled arm and you're world class for lite on your wallet. Of course winning one would leave more dough in my wallet for more premium vinyl.

Still using an original VPI turntable with MMT arm and a Blue Point cartridge.  My VPI is so early (old), there is no model number on it.  Time for an upgrade!

Always loved and respected VPI turntables and Dynavector cartridges. Thanks Music Direct for the opportunity!

jimmieg's picture

I emailed VPI the other day to find out if this table will be available with XLR connectors, and at least for now it will not, but XLR may become available at a later date. Looks like a great value for money, would love to win this!

There is a certain delight to take in the obviousness of the thoughtful design of such record players that their more modern cousins cannot seem to convey.

My sons turntable died.  He is a poor college kid.  Hope we can win for him.

This is quite a nice looking table and cartridge combo, looks like another great job from VPI, and matched well with an excellent Dynavector. Thanks for the sweepstakes!

gotoma8's picture

So, owner of past VPI and current models, one more would be great!  and a gimbal arm at that!

Fingers Crossed!

Will make a nice replacement for my 30 y/o Rega Planar 3.

krelldreams's picture

I would love to win this combo to give to my 22 year old son! He is a music lover, & only buys LP's! What better way to keep vinyl sales going strong, than to keep all generations interested ;)

It's going to be fun comparing the VPI to my classic Harman Kardon T55C turntable.

My old table died and it's been over a year. And my dog needs surgery (really, true story...). Not complaining, just sayin'...

Count me in

rmarston's picture

I have a very high regard for the Dynavector line. Have a 501 tonearm and 10x5 cartridge that sounds far better than anything else on my turntable. Would love to hear the 20x2 on the VPI.

gabel's picture

Thanks so much for this unique chance at winning this amazing analog setup.  Here's hoping it is my lucky day!  What an amazing upgrade this would be for this analog lover. 

Butch's picture

My 36 year old Micro Seiki turntable died. This would make a terrific replacement. My vinyl collection has been pretty lonesome lately, what with no place to play and all....

would be nice to actually win something I'd enjoy

wimi2's picture

Wife found my hidden new turntable fund and spent it.  This would definately make up for it.

tinwhistler's picture

This would be perfect for all the time I am going to have with my system.  I got sidetracked into digital for the last decade, but kept the thousands of LPs that I had collected and moved around the country.

uncle_fester's picture

especially when the prize is a new VPI tt!

eyedoc's picture

I will even sell my present turntable and donate the proceeds to GSA.  (and buy more GSA cookies...)

fraldrete's picture

Already dreaming about it!

Great looking table; reminds me of a slim plinth Rega but with american panache.

sure would be nice to win this - since I lost everything in the fire, It will be years before I can afford to buy a new turntable to play records I no longer have...

A nice upgrade from my Victrola.

This would make an excellent upgrade from the Denon I have.

MSB's picture

I have used a dyna XXII for over 20 years and its still greatl. I cant imagine what a new one would sound like in comparison, but would love to find out!

dcsalling's picture

I am buying a new turntable soon, probably a Pro-ject or Music Hall... The traveler is just out of my price range by hundreds.. So VPI save me... let me win so I can buy a better phono stage and interconnects!  Thanks!

hoeffel's picture

Especially since creating a password was more complex than creating a login for my brokerage account. And why the default to Asia? I'm thinking that most of us are here in the USA. Just sayin'.

Bigboi1952's picture

Whoever wins is going to be very very lucky to have this as their analog front end.  Good luck everybody!

SecondMouse's picture

This equipment would look real good in my listening room!

jjjjwoody's picture

My wife really wants this 'table - says it will fit the decor.  Help a dude out.

Barr Plexico's picture

First off, I really would like to win. I mean really badly. Second comment, this site and its predecessor (MusicAngle) has cost me some serious money over the past year. Those album reviews are so enticing. Thanks for the recommendations.
